Micheal Dunn’s attorney, Corey Strolla, has asked that his client’s sentencing hearing be delayed until — and, at this point, still a likely but speculative if — Dunn is retried on the murder charges on which the jury hung during his first trial last month. (This report is sourced at the Associated Press.)
Angela Corey, the Florida State Prosecutor who led Dunn’s prosecution, has stated that she is determined to re-try Dunn on the hung murder charge.
Dunn’s attorney Strolla argues that statements that Dunn might make during his sentencing hearing could be used against him at his re-trial.
