TAMPA (Court TV) — After 14 days and 41 witnesses, the evidence in Michael Keetley’s
retrial is in and the case is in a Florida jury’s hands.
Keetley’s retrial comes three years after a jury in his February 2020
trial could not reach a verdict. His former attorney told Court TV in 2020
that the split was 10-2 in favor of acquittal.
As frustrating as retrials can be for both sides, they create the opportunity for attorneys to fine tune their approach. Here are some highlights from the state and defense cases that caught our attention:
