Good morning again:
Michael Dunn will be sentenced today at 10:30 am EDT.
You can watch the livestream and comment below.
Dunn’s lawyer has filed a motion for a new trial, which is standard operating procedure and should not be a matter to lose sleep over. The arguments are that he should get a new trial because:
1. The retrial should have been moved to another county;
2. The medical examiner should not have been permitted to testify about the trajectory of the shot that killed Jordan Davis; and
3. The juror should not have been dismissed for misconduct during the trial.
I cannot comment on the jury selection issue because it was not televised or livestreamed.
The argument that the medical examiner should not have been permitted to testify is ridiculous because no one is better qualified than a pathologist medical examiner to testify about the trajectory of a bullet through the body and the defense ‘expert,’ Michael Knox is a hack.
The juror was properly dismissed for making inappropriate statements about Angela Corey.
I believe Judge Healey will deny the motion.
Dunn’s lawyer can raise these issues on appeal.
