Florida Capital Resource Center’s First Amicus Brief - Victory Allows Mitigation Specialist in Death Penalty Case


As the Florida Capital Resource Center grows, stories like this will become more commonplace - but today, it’s a major victory we’re celebrating since the First District Court of Appeals has ruled in favor of allowing additional mitigation expertise in a pending prosecution where the death penalty is being sought.

As Terry puts it, “Our first Amicus filed on behalf of those working courageously to represent death qualified defendants in Florida! Congrats to Rick Sichta (defendant’s trial counsel)!” (As the founder of FCRC, Terry is understandably proud and excited about this result.)
