Scarborough began his legal career in Pensacola in 1991, after being admitted to the ‘Florida Bar.’ One of the most notable cases he presided over was the murder of Doctor David Gunn in 1993, in which he represented the convict, Michael F. Griffin. He did, however, withdraw from the case after defending his client in court a few times. Scarborough then assisted Griffin with his future legal proceedings, including the selection of a new lawyer. He even shielded his family from public scrutiny. Scarborough rose to prominence in politics after opposing a property tax increase in Pensacola in 1993. As a result, the following year, he became the first ‘Republican’ congressman elected from Florida’s 1st Congressional District in 121 years. RELATED: Amanda Skrzypchak
