March 15, 2022 - Federal Court of Appeals Reinstates Crosley GREEN Conviction

Late yesterday (Mar 14), the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit issued an opinion overturning the Writ of Habeas Corpus granted by the U.S. District Court, Middle District of Florida in July of 2018, in the matter of Crosley Alexander GREEN. The Writ would have required the State to either conduct a new trial, or waive further prosecution. The Florida Attorney General's Office filed an appeal to the 11th DCA in August of 2018, that resulted in yesterdays decision. With the ruling by the 11th DCA, GREEN's conviction has been reinstated and our jurisdiction over the case concluded.
GREEN had been convicted of First-Degree Felony Murder (CF), two (2) counts of Kidnapping (F1), and two (2) counts of Robbery with a Firearm (F1) in connection to the death of Charles "Chip" Flynn (22), and kidnapping robbery of Kim Hallock in 1989. Originally sentenced to death, a ruling by the Florida Supreme Court converted GREEN's sentence to life in prison.
There is a mandatory 30 day period before the 11th DCA's ruling becomes final and our office will reserve further comment while the matter remains open before the Court.
