Trayvon Prosecutor, Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi have appointed a special prosecutor to investigate the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, removing the state attorney who had been considering the case. The Orlando Sentinel reports Scott and Bondi appointed State Attorney Angela B. Corey, whose office handles cases in Duval, Clay and Nassau counties.
On Thursday, Scott created a task force headed by Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll to review Florida’s 2005 “Stand Your Ground” law, which allows people to use deadly force if they think their lives or others’ are in imminent danger or they face “great bodily harm.”
Brevard-Seminole State Attorney Norm Wolfinger signed a letter requesting the special prosecutor, saying he was acting “with the intent of toning down the rhetoric and preserving the integrity of this investigation.”
“In the interest of the public safety of the citizens of Seminole County and to avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest, I would respectfully request the executive assignment of another state attorney for the investigation and any prosecution arising from the circumstances surrounding the death of Trayvon B. Martin,” Wolfinger wrote.
