    Jarred Harrell plead "not guilty" to the charges against him connected to Somer.

    See story.

    Q: Because this is a death penalty case (Orange Park, FL), did he have no choice but to plead not guilty?

    ETA
    If he could have plead guilty, would the judge have been able to sentence him to death? If not, what other options would be available to the judge.

    You can plead guilty in a death penalty case, and the judge can still sentence you to death (or life without parole) if you do.

    "It would seem to me that June 16, 2008 was the last time that the victim was viewed by her grandparents. It became quite evident that from the OS of the Defense that the 16th was a date of great importance and that a so called time line of activities dealing with CA, LA, GA and ICA on the 16th and what, if any, activities took place on the 15th, 16th and 17th of June on 24 hour cycles would have been, at least, of a minimal requirement of review. I take it at some point you had a computer expert look at that data?" HHJP, 6/21/11
