Stand Your Ground Defense Won’t Spare Florida Cop A Trial For Shooting Black Man, Judge Rules

Florida’s notorious Stand Your Ground self-defense law won’t be enough to spare a cop from trial for shooting an armed black man.

A judge ruled Friday that she found the police officer’s testimony about the killing of Corey Jones to be “unreliable and not credible.” 

In a 27-page ruling, Judge Samantha Schosberg Feuer of Florida’s 15th Judicial Circuit Court denied a motion to have the case dismissed. She noted several inconsistencies between the officer’s testimony and the evidence of the case.

Former Palm Beach Gardens Police Officer Nouman K. Raja had shot and killed Jones, a musician and house inspector, while inspecting Jones’ car that had been parked at the side of an interstate on October 18, 2015. Jones was 31.

What happened between Raja approaching the car and Jones’ death has been disputed. 

Raja fired six shots at Jones — who was armed — only moments after arriving at the scene. Three of the

"Gay Panic" Defense Helps Man Avoid Jail Time For Stabbing Neighbor To Death

The rarely-used “gay panic” defense helped a Texas musician avoid jail time for killing a neighbor who allegedly tried to seduce him during a jam session.

James Miller, 69, will serve 10 years probation after being sentenced for criminally negligent homicide for the 2015 death of Daniel Spencer, according to KXAN-TV in Austin.

Miller, a former police employee, had originally been charged with murder in September 2015. But he was found not guilty of murder or manslaughter.

As per the decision on Wednesday, Miller will pay $10,000 in fines and serve 100 hours of community service. He will also have an alcohol monitor until the judge deems it unnecessary.

In court, Miller’s defense successfully argued he had stabbed Spencer to death after Spencer allegedly attempted to seduce him. The court saw this killing as self-defense.

“It was so uncharacteristic of Mr. Miller that for him to engage in this behavior clearly had to be

Aaron Hernandez’s Defense Attorney Talks About The Former NFL Star’s Suicide

In the early morning hours of April 19, 2017, five days after he was acquitted of a double homicide, Aaron Hernandez was found hanging from a bedsheet in his prison cell. Hernandez was only 27 years old when he committed suicide, and he had just started serving his life sentence for a separate murder, the 2013 shooting of Odin Lloyd.

Hernandez’s suicide came as a complete shock to his friends and family, who believed the former New England Patriots tight end was feeling positive after receiving a not guilty verdict for the 2012 slayings of Daniel Jorge Correia de Abreu and Safiro Teixeira Furtado.

In the month following his death, Hernandez’s fiancée, Shayanna Jenkins, told Dr. Phil that during her final conversation with Hernandez, he even sounded upbeat.

“I felt like we were looking so bright,” Jenkins said. “We were going up a ladder to a positive direction.”
