Media Roundtable: Dunn Trial Jurors Speaking To The Press
The second juror from the Michael Dunn murder trial to go public this week said Dunn murdered Jordan Davis and there shouldn't have been a mistrial.
Creshuna Miles, also known as Juror #8, told CNN she would have convicted Dunn on second-degree murder, not first-degree as sought by prosecutors. She is one of nine jurors who voted to convict Dunn for killing.
Earlier this week another juror, speaking to ABC News, described tense moments and loud yelling in the jury room during the more than 30 hours of deliberations it took to convict Dunn on three counts of attempted murder and firing a gun into an occupied vehicle.
Joining us on our regular Friday media roundtable to discuss this and other stories is our panel of local journalists:
- Larry Hannan, Florida Times-Union reporter
- John Burr, Jacksonville Business Journal editor
- Jeff Billman, Folio Weekly editor
- Fred Matthews, Examiner blogger
