Brandon Bradley, Dwayne White Death Penalty Re-sentencing

Today the Florida Supreme Court upheld the convictions, but vacated the death penalty sentences for Brandon Bradley and Dwayne White. Both cases were sent back to the 18th Judicial Circuit for re-sentencing hearings.

Bradley was convicted in the premeditated murder of Brevard County Sheriff's Deputy Barbara Pill in 2012 and White was convicted in the brutal murder of his estranged wife, Sarah Rucker in 2011.

After the ruling was announced State Attorney Phil Archer issued the following statement;

"We have received and will continue to receive death penalty cases in which the Florida Supreme Court has affirmed the convictions and finding of guilt but has vacated the sentence of death and remanded the case back to our circuit for a new sentencing hearing based on their recent decision that jury recommendations for death must be unanimous.

My office will carefully and thoroughly review the available evidence, obtain input from family survivors and law enforcement, and then make a determination on whether to again seek the death penalty in each of these cases.However, as it pertains to the Brandon Bradley case, it is hard to imagine a scenario in which my office would not continue to seek the death penalty."
