Tom Raffanello, the former head of the DEA in Miami, who  most recently served as the head of security for suspected financial scammer Allen Stanford, could get a little break in his criminal case.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Robin Rosenbaum in Miami has recommended that one of the major charges against him be dropped, specifically one that says  he interfered with a federal probe of Allen Stanford’s company by ordering the destruction of reams of company documents, the Miami Herald reported.

Raffanello is charged with destroying the documents after the feds shut down Stanford’s financial empire. Stanford is currently in prison.

The Herald reported that the magistrate said the government failed to show he interferred with the Security Exchange Commission probe. The magistrate did not recommend dismissal of the entire case, saying the government could show he did destroy records during the probe.
