Mark Rubin on WOKV: Disappointed at first degree conviction for Dunn

By Stephanie Brown

Jacksonville, FL —

State Attorney Angela Corey says a first degree murder conviction for Michael Dunn shows the case was not overcharged, but WOKV’s Legal Analyst Mark Rubin says it’s not that clear cut.

“The fact that a jury followed the State Attorney’s recommendation and convicted on first degree murder shows that the prosecutors in the trial are better than the defense attorneys,” Rubin says.

Rubin believes the facts that were presented on the stand show a clear case of second degree murder. The difference between first and second degree centers on premeditation.

“The jury had to believe that Dunn intended to kill Jordan Davis,” Rubin says.
