A special prosecutor has been assigned by the state of Florida to investigate someone's death. I don't like this special prosecutor and think they will are biased. How do I petition the state to appoint someone else?
You need to communicate your dissatisfaction. Publicity and political contacts may be very important. It is unlikely that there will be a change without pressure.
The question you ask can best be answered by someone with criminal law experience. I strongly recomend you add that to your practice area. good luck
This answer is a public service and not an attempt to solicit business. Jonathan Groff’s practice is devoted to all aspects of personal injury litigation throughout Florida. He has a “10.0 Superb” rating from AVVO and is rated “AV Preeminent” by Martindale-Hubbell. However, this reply should NOT be considered a legal opinion of your case / inquiry. At this time I do not have sufficient factual/legal documentation to give a complete answer to your question and there may be more to the issues you raise then I have set out in my brief reply. Further, unless your matter concerns Florida law, I am not licensed to practice or give specific legal advice in your state.
I think I know who we are talking about, and perhaps the best advice I can give you is that the family should hire the most experienced wrongful death lawyer to file a civil case against the person or other entities responsible. If you remember O.J.'s case, although he was found not guilty by the criminal jury, he was found responsible for wrongful death in a later civil action. The civil case will require that monies be expended to hire expert witnesses to testify regarding various complex areas such as police procedures, crime watch practices and procedures, racial bias, psychological testimony, etc. This civil case should be commenced as soon as possible since evidence is fairly recent, memories are somewhat good, etc. A civil lawyer may choose NOT to file the action until after a conclusion in the criminal case, but he or she should begin the process of investigation and trial strategy NOW. The earlier he or she starts, the better the chances are of a great result later on. Good luck and feel free to contact me at [email protected] if you have any other questions.
