    FL - Jordan Davis, 17, shot to death, Satellite Beach, 23 Nov 2012 #8

    Argument over loud music led to teen's fatal shooting, cops say (orlandosentinel.com)
    A Brevard County man was in jail Monday, accused of shooting a teenager dead in an argument over loud music.

    Michael David Dunn, 45, and his girlfriend were in Jacksonville Friday for Dunn's son's wedding when they stopped at a convenience store, Jacksonville sheriff's Lt. Rob Schoonover said.

    Jordan Russell Davis, 17, and several other teenagers were sitting in a sport utility vehicle in the parking lot when Dunn pulled up next to them in a car and asked them to turn down their music, Schoonover said.

    Jordan and Dunn exchanged words, and Dunn pulled a gun and shot eight or nine times, striking Jordan twice, Schoonover said. Jordan was sitting in the back seat. No one else was hurt.

    Dunn's attorney Monday said her client acted responsibly and in self-defense. She did not elaborate.

    Michael Dunn guilty on four counts, including attempted murder; mistrial declared on first-degree murder charge

    The jury did not reach a unanimous verdict on first-degree murder but on Saturday found the Florida resident guilty on the other four counts in the fall shooting 17-year-old Jordan Davis. The prosecution said they will retry the first-degree murder case.

    A Florida jury found Michael Dunn guilty on three charges of attempted murder and firing a weapon into a vehicle Saturday in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Jordan Davis after a 2012 argument outside a Jacksonville convenience store over loud music.

    I don't think so, that isn't the way I understood it. My understanding of what she was saying is that if the defense thought MD was over charged - there was a process, written into Florida law, whereby the defense could dispute the charges. There was also a process for the "stand your ground" defense. MD's lawyer chose not to file either process.

    That's just the way I heard it.

    In a post-trial news conference, prosecutors said the attempted murder counts carry 20-30 years in prison each. The fifth count carries up to 15 years in prison. A sentencing hearing date is set for March 24.

    Jordan Davis deserves justice. His parents need justice. So yes, I would say it is worth the effort. JMO

    As a local taxpayer, I'm OK with spending the money for a retrial.

    Not a lawyer, but watched the JAX4 News Legal Analyst. He said Dunn would have to serve every day of the 20 years, each. The max sentence is 30, min 20. HTH

    Civil lawsuits against Michael Dunn settled
    Attorney for Jordan Davis' parents confirms settlement

    In a text, John Phillips wrote: "We made an offer to settle both cases against Michael Dunn - 1) the estate of Jordan Davis' case and 2) the case of two boys we represent. They accepted the offer in full. We cannot disclose the offer at this time, but it resolved all civil suits in principle."

    It seems like it may be consecutive

    a very quick and not thorough search of FL cases found this recent case which has a somewhat similar fact pattern although none of the four were killed and the charges were aggravated assault not attempted murder. Now I don't know what kind of discretion the judge has but reports are that Healey is a tough sentencer:

    When a defendant with a gun threatens four people and then discharges the gun into the air, the court is required to impose consecutive 20-year mandatory minimum sentences when the defendant is convicted of four aggravated assaults, an en banc Fourth DCA held April 24. Williams v. S., __ So. 3d __, 38 F.L.W. D912 (4th DCA 4/24/2013).

    The defendant got into an argument with four others, and he drew his gun and fired into the air several times. The defendant was charged with four counts of aggravated assault, and he was convicted at trial with the jury finding that he actually possessed and fired the gun on each count. At sentencing the issue was whether section 775.087(2)(d) required the court to impose the 20-year mandatory minimum sentences consecutively, or whether the court had discretion to impose either consecutive or concurrent mandatories. In certifying a question to the Florida Supreme Court, an en banc court unanimously held that the statutes requires and does not merely permit consecutive mandatory minimums.

    Applying the plain language of section 775.087(2)(d), as interpreted by our supreme court in State v. Sousa, 903 So. 2d 923 (Fla. 2005), we conclude that the trial court was required to impose consecutive sentences.
