Michael Dunn: Charges
A Florida grand jury indicted Michael Dunn Dec. 13, 2013, on five charges including first-degree murder, attempted murder, and a firearms charge. The first-degree murder charge death is for the shooting death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis. Three counts of attempted murder relate to the three teens in the vehicle with Davis. Dunn was initially charged with second-degree murder because in Florida a defendant cannot be charged with first-degree murder without the approval of a grand jury. The State Attorney’s Office stated it would not seek the death penalty. If convicted of first-degree murder Dunn would be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
