State of Florida vs Michael Dunn: Friday, February 7, 2014 - Day 2, Room 406. The case has only just begun, but this was a deep look at a full day in a murder trial. Take a look at some of the documents in the links of Day 2 part I to get some more insight.
3:25 p.m. – Alissa Le Blanc is an elementary school teacher who lives in JAX, went to dinner at the Loop Pizza Grill in the plaza that is close to the GATE. She went with her family and her roommate. She heard gunfire from the GATE and then a red SUV speeding towards her as she was leaving the restaurant.
She saw 2 people, in the front seats of the Durango, get out and remain there about 1 minute. Nothing was ever removed from the vehicle. Alissa’s brother called 911 and she spoke with police some time later where she gave her statement. Her 911 conversation was played for the court.
Defense estimated that December 4 (2 weeks later) she spoke with detectives. He questions her about the red Durango and the passengers who get out of the vehicle; she could have missed something. Her priority was probably on the safety of her family and not what came from, or didn’t come from the Durango. Her brother could not have seen anything either due to taking care of the baby.
3:50 p.m. – side bar. 4:08 p.m. – court resumes. Alissa did not know that bullets ad riddled the SUV.
4:09 p.m. – Christopher LeBlanc 26 years old and brother of Alissa. His son was 2-years-old at the time. He too heard gunshots from GATE. It was established that the 2 people in the front seat of the SUV did not get rid of anything from the Durango. Christopher also was on a portion of the 911 call.
Defense tells Christopher that he could not have seen anything concerning the Durango. He was also preoccupied with situating his son in his sister’s car. He met with detectives on December 3rd to sign a sworn deposition.
4:35 p.m. – Approach the bench.
4:40 p.m. – Christopher had a warrant for a suspended license and now has a valid drivers license without any preferential treatment from the Prosecution.
4:45 p.m. – End of the day. Tomorrow court will resume at 9:00 A.m.
