JACKSONVILLE Fla. -- State Attorney Angela Corey says she has every intention of retrying Michael Dunn for the alleged first-degree murder of Jordan Davis.

"We just get ready, we come back into court and we just work just as hard and we seek justice in the same way," said Corey. "We don't back off, having to retry."

Corey thanked her staff, prosecutors John Guy and Erin Wolfson, and said the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office did an excellent job investigating the case.

"Ten times out of 10 when someone fires 10 shots into a car full of unarmed teenagers we will file first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder," said Corey.

Dunn is facing 30 years in prison for each count of attempted second-degree murder, with a 20-year mandatory minimum, and 15 years in prison for the conviction on shooting/throwing a deadly missile.

Corey said she plans to push for a retrial in Jacksonville.

I agree with 'Realchange' and wonder why any States Attorney would still have a job after what she did in the Martin trial. She certainly does not instill trust and confidence in our judicial system. When individuals are elected or appointed to high positions where integrity is key, they need to be removed, fired, and never placed in a position of trust again. Looks like another slam against honest law biding citizens, with outsiders calling the shots and controlling the media. The position of State Attorney should be one endearing trust and honesty, not levered by corrupt actions. Just my take.

Pizza and wine $25.00, movie in the hotel room $5.00, the look on Dunn's face when that guilty verdict was announced, PRICELESS!

Corey is just grandstanding now. Dunn is already facing 105 years. There is no reason to waste taxpayers money on another trial.

Get her out office. She hid evidence in the Martin trial even conspiring with the judge to hide evidence that showed Martin's violent and criminal side. Anyone trusts this woman to be honest or truthful is clearly deceived. Anything comes out her mouth is automatically a lie. She conspired to hide cell phone data she ordered uncovered. Then would destroyed it soon as possible.
