Earlier Life and Education
Hee was in good standing. It said that he practiced in Miami-Dade County and had no discipline history in the past 10 years.

He’s listed as an attorney in seven cases in federal court in the Southern District of Florida. The cases are civil cases. One involved Coral Reed’s developments. He had been with that firm for more than four years.
Honaker is now represented by the federal public defender’s office. The complaint says that, in one of the robberies, Honaker wore “a floppy hat and a blue, short-sleeved shirt.”
He “followed a consistent approach during the six robbery attempts, two of which were successful: Honaker would enter each bank alone, walk up to a teller window, and ask the teller for assistance in making a withdrawal. He would pass a note to the bank teller that contained hand-written instructions and warnings.”
The warnings included, “[d]on’t touch the alarm or call the police,” “empty all of your $50s and $100s and put it in an envelope,” and “[k]eep calm, and give me all the money in the drawer, I have a gun,” the Department of Justice says.
“Honaker would take his note with him on the way out of the bank, says the affidavit,” the DOJ release says.
