JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Attorneys for the man accused of gunning down a local high school student will head back to the courtroom later this week. Monday, a judge set a hearing date for Friday to discuss whether the state will pay for Michael Dunn's defense.
Dunn is accused of shooting and killing 17-year-old Jordan Davis at a Gate gas station last November. Dunn claims the shooting was in self-defense.
Dunn's attorney's claims he is broke and has no assets. Attorney Cory Strolla filed a motion to get the state to incur the costs of his trial. If the motion is approved, your tax dollars could pay for Dunn's defense.
