GM FAM, TODAY'S HOT TOPIC, ON THE HEELS OF THE MICHAEL DUNN VERDICT, SHOULD THE STATE PURSUE A NEW TRIAL OR IS THE CONVICTION ON THE 3 LESSOR CHARGES ENOUGH TO SERVE JUSTICE?SHOULD

Jurors on Saturday found a white Florida man guilty of three counts of attempted murder and one other charge for the fatal shooting of a black teenager over loud music, but a mistrial was declared on the most-serious charge against the defendant — first-degree murder.

After deliberating for more than 30 hours over four days, the jury convicted Michael Dunn, 47, of three counts of attempted murder in the second degree and one count of firing a deadly missile into an occupied vehicle, but deadlocked on the first-degree murder charge, prompting the judge in the case to declare a mistrial on that charge.

Florida State Attorney Angela Corey indicated she would seek a retrial on that count.

 

Sentencing on the other charges was set for March 24. Dunn still faces at least 60 years in prison on the lesser counts. He could face a sentence of life in prison if he was convicted on the first-degree murder charge on retrial.
