Judge to hear Dunn's motion to delay sentencing hearing
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.
