JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A judge plans to listen to several defense motions ahead of Michael Dunn's scheduled sentencing hearing.

The State Attorneys Office tells Action News the motions hearing is set for March 10.

Attorney Cory Strolla asked the court for a continuance Tuesday, citing a lack of time to prepare for sentencing while awaiting a possible new trial on first-degree murder charges. A jury deadlocked on that charge while convicting him on three counts of attempted murder and firing deadly missiles after the shooting of 17-year-old Jordan Davis.

Thursday, the court granted Strolla's request for the state to make a final payment to a private investigator.

There will be a status hearing in the case has also been set for March 3.

The sentencing hearing remains set for March 24.

Hopefully, the Court will take into consideration Dunn's attorney consists of 1 person while the SA's office has 3 attorney's preparing for both. IMO it would be less than fair not to allow more time.

Could you imagine what would happen if the defense team found a gun that been disposed of that had finger prints from those teens on it ? That would change every thing then.
