Miami – February 16, 2022

“Today’s Appellate decision overturning Jonathan Aledda’s culpable negligence conviction is disappointing to all who believed that this shooting incident was unnecessary and incorrect.

Since the 1991 Lozano appellate decision, prosecutors have not been permitted to use police policy and training as evidence in criminal trials involving police officers.

Today’s opinion says that now, a charged police officer, in defense of a criminal prosecution, can utilize police policy and training as evidence. At this point, we will begin exploring the possibility of obtaining a rehearing before the Third District Court of Appeals.”
