“We are very pleased with the DCA ruling that Ms. Alexander will be granted a new trial. Today is not a celebration of victory, but the beginning of the next round in our fight for justice for Ms. Alexander. As always, we respect the judicial system and look forward to a positive outcome,” said Attorney Cobbin.

The Law Office of Kevin M. Cobbin would like to acknowledge the appellate team on their hard work and perseverance throughout this process.

As a reminder, Florida was the first state to pass a ‘stand your ground law‘ in 2005.
