Story:

 

We lost one youth on the 1st of the year, Denim Williams-16 years old, when he was accused of taking a phone and running (by people who are now being prosecuted for lying in the police report) and was chased and shot and killed over the phone. The man wasn’t charged at first but later got a 2nd degree manslaughter charge. Now a young friend of his who was at the scene but left before the situation even happened, Deandre Florence, is charged with a felony murder and a string of charges for his association even though he wasn’t at the scene when it happened and no one had a gun or did anything violent to make this happen. Deandre is a graduating senior who has missed graduation and so much more sitting for months. All because the law says if you commit a felony (the snatching of the phone in this situation) and someone ends up dead then you can be charged with felony murder.

 

Please call the State Attorneys office at 407-836-2400 and ask them to drop the felony murder charge against Deandre or send email:

Body: “To the State Attorney’s office of the Ninth Judicial Circuit Orange & Osceola County ,

I am a concerned citizen and resident in Central Florida that has seen updates about the young man Deandre Florence’s case. I stand in support of dropping the felony murder charge and allowing the young man to redeem himself with a second chance after his trial is complete. We ask that you take this into consideration and hear the people’s cry. ”

Deandre Florence’s trial has had several continuations but the latest update is it has been pushed back to September 4th, 2019 for pre trial. He has been sitting for months waiting on the state to disclose evidence for discovery. We want to expedite this process and help bring Deandre home!
