First trial in Sean Taylor killing to begin April 16

Sean Taylor killing: Judge sets April 16 trial date for alleged shooter - The Insider - The Washington Post

Quote:
A Miami judge on Friday scheduled the trial for the man charged with shooting and killing former Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor to begin April 16, according to an Associated Press report.

Eric Rivera Jr., 21, will be the first of the four suspects accused of killing Taylor to go to trial. The men will be tried separately.

How is that it takes 4 years to take these animals to court? What is wrong with the state of Florida?

Such a shame. It's still hard to believe sometimes.

^ indeed.

Edit: when we were playing against NE and Gro was tearing up our defense, I thought to myself, it would not be possible if Sean was still here. I cannot help but think of Sean from time to time. I am amazed by the fact that I never had met Sean and yet he made such impact on me and everybody else.

Re: First trial in Sean Taylor killing to begin April 16

I know the main charge to these alleged criminals and murders is murder which has no statute of limitations. But some of the lesser charges like robbery has a limit. Below is the state of Florida Statute of limitations:


Offense Designation Time Limitation
3rd Degree Felony 3 years
2nd Degree Felony 3 years
1st Degree Felony 4 years
Life Felony None
Capital Felony None

i am by no means a lawyer, but i have seen almost every episode of law and order. i'm pretty sure the statute of limitations applies to charges being filed, not the length of the trail. so these guys have all been charged and i would think the statute of limitations would not apply.

Re: First trial in Sean Taylor killing to begin April 16

I hope they bring the hammer down on them. Every time I saw one of our various free safeties (Atogwe, Moore, Doughty, or Landry back when he played fs) miss a play over the past 4 years, I think of ST.

I wonder if they will press for the death penalty?

You can't get the death penalty unless it was a planned murder. This wasn't a planned murder, Sean wasn't even supposed to be home that night so the death penalty is out of the question. I believe in a life for a life though. These sacks of shit aren't going to be worth a damn to society any longer and we really could use the extra space.

That's for being charged, not being tried. They were charged LOOOONG ago so the stuff you've posted is moot.
