Alex Little Discusses Murder Trial of Michael Dunn with Fox News

Bone McAllester Norton attorney Alex Little talked with Fox News anchor Jamie Colby this weekend about the continuation of jury deliberations in the Michael Dunn murder trial. Dunn was found guilty of attempted second-degree murder Saturday, but the jury was partially hung on the murder decision against him in the death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis. Citing self-defense, Dunn testified that the teenager threatened him and that he thought he saw a gun in the SUV Davis and his friends were driving.

“Self-defense cases are incredibly difficult because the instructions are complex, and I think jurors tend to think of themselves more in the place of the defendant in a self-defense case than in any other time...because you wonder what you would do in a similar situation. You’ve got 12 people in there, and you’ve got to convince all 12 beyond a reasonable doubt that he didn’t act in self-defense, and that can be very difficult to do,” he said.
