The Removal of Aramis Ayala as State Attorney of the 9th Judicial Circuit in Florida
This petition had 1,455 supporters
9th Judicial Circuit State Attorney Aramis Ayala refuses to follow the law with regard to the current Florida Statute of enforcing the Death Penalty in the State of Florida under Chapter 921 of the Florida Statute. Specifically, Markeith Loyd was indicted on 11 counts, including murder, firearm and other charges in the December 13 death of his pregnant ex-girlfriend Sade Dixon and the January 9 death of Orlando police Lt. Debra Clayton. The released video shows Markeith Loyd shooting Debra Clayton in the head after she was lying on the ground injured due to other gun shot wounds caused by Loyd. Today, March 16, 2017, State Attorney Aramis Ayala held a press conference announcing her office would not seek the death penalty because of financial considerations (a policy not a law) in this case. She further stated that she would rescind the death penalty determinations made on five other pending cases. This affects the public and private citizens in this circuit of Orange and Osceola Counties. This is unconscionable. This is a dereliction of duty. Governor Rick Scott should immediately remove her as the State Attorney in this Circuit.
