The Miami-Dade state attorney's office fired three employees and disciplined three others just before Christmas weekend for a host of alleged transgressions. Also, a top prosecutor, division chief Herbert E. Walker III, resigned by e-mail Friday. Some of the disciplinary actions stemmed from two prosecutors' alleged agreement to drop misdemeanor criminal cases in exchange for defendants' donations to a domestic violence shelter supported by the judge hearing the cases, according to a spokeswoman.
