Gulf Breeze High School takes top honors in mock trial competition by Hon. David Langham The 2019 Florida Law Related Education Association (FLREA) Mock Trial Competition was a tremendous event in the First Circuit, due in no small part to the Escambia-Santa Rosa Bar Association (ESRBA). Originally, eight teams signed up to compete. Due to scheduling conflict, only six teams eventually participated. But, that represented a significant increase in participation nonetheless. This program persistently features phenomenally poised, practiced, and prepared young people. Their enthusiasm and dedication are simply inspiring. These are young people of the local community, preparing for their futures through a rigorous academic endeavor. They are supported by dedicated attorneys, teacher coaches, and sponsors. In recent years, there has even been one high school principal that attends to support. There were also familiar faces in the audience, former members of these teams. These young alumni have transitioned from student to mentor. Their return to support their high school team epitomizes the strong character and citizenship of the students that are persistently involved in this competition. These are student citizens that are engaging their communities

and building skills. These are students of which we should all be proud. Throughout the planning and execution of this event, the competition was supported by ESRBA Executive Director Jeff Nall. And, it was indeed a proud moment when Young Lawyer President Jessica Etherton presented the awards following the final round. There is great value in these students, parents, and coaches witnessing the engagement of our local bar association. The top three 2019 First Circuit finishers were Gulf Breeze High School, Tate High School, and Catholic High School. With the generous financial support of the Escambia Santa Rosa County Bar Association Foundation, Gulf Breeze traveled to Orlando to compete in the FLREA state competition. They finished fourth in Florida. The team was also honored with a professionalism award and one team member was named best witness overall in the state competition. None of this would be possible without the many hours volunteered by local attorneys and judges. The following judged rounds in the First Circuit competition: Hon. Gary Bergosh, Hon. Amy Broderson, Ryan Cardoso, Shekka Drayton, Hon. Jennifer Frydrychowicz,

Susan Harrell, Hon. Michael Jones, Kylie Kennon, Joseph Kirkland, John Mahoney, Aaron McCurdy, Thomas Moody, Travis Morock, Haley Mull, Hannah Nowalk, Valerie Prevatte, Tara Said, Kerry Schultz, Hon. Kera Smith, Andrew Spencer, Kelsey Stone, Tesha Stoner, John Terrezza, Hon. Elizabeth Timothy, Hon. Roger Vinson, Hon. Jonathan Walker. This competition just would not be what it is without all these fantastic volunteers. Every round was presided over by a state, federal, or administrative judge. Special thanks are due Shekka Drayton and Aaron McCurdy for filling in for additional rounds on short notice to cover other volunteers’ unexpected urgencies, truly above and beyond the call. The competition was also fortunate to have volunteer student timekeepers from Pensacola State College and the University of West Florida Legal Studies program; yet another example of community and student mentorship. It is inspiring to see college students volunteering in support of a valuable high school activity in the community. Finally, this Circuit is privileged that the Escambia Santa Rosa County Bar Association Young Lawyers Division provides significant

annual financial support for this competition. Their generosity allows this competition to proceed in the courthouse, which requires payment for security services. It is their financial support that allows the competition to bestow trophies and other recognitions to these phenomenal local students, recognizing their hard work. Without the support of

the Bar Association and Foundation, the First Circuit competition would simply not be all that it is. The First Circuit communities, schools, students, and parents are grateful for your time, your contributions, and your support. Local leaders look forward to this competition each year, and look forward to seeing all of you again in 2020.

Attorney Fred Levin Honored for historic donation to the University of Florida, donates millions more

GAINESVILLE, FL – Attorney and University of Florida alumni Fred Levin was honored Tuesday evening at the University of Florida Levin College of Law in recognition of the 20th anniversary of his $10 million donation to the law school. Today, his son and attorney Martin H. Levin, also a University of Florida Levin College of Law graduate, announced his father is gifting an additional $6 million to the law school to be used for scholarships. Mr. Levin’s most recent gift is being made in honor of his late wife of 51 years, Marilyn Kapner Levin, who also was a philanthropist, having donated funds for a building at Sacred Heart Hospital’s Children’s Miracle Camp and the Gulf Coast Kid’s House, both of which bear her name. “There are no awards given for being an amazing mother and homemaker,” said Mr. Levin. “She chose to live her life for others and this scholarship donation will allow her legacy of giving back to live on, as well as give students for years to come the opportunity to pursue a law degree that they, in turn, can use

to further the cause of justice and be a champion for others.” In 1999, Mr. Levin’s $10 million endowment was the largest cash gift in the history of the University of Florida and was the second largest cash donation ever to any public law school. In light of the extraordinary donation, the law school officially became known as the University of Florida Fredric G. Levin College of Law. The Levin College of Law is now one of the most successful in the country. According to U.S. News & World Report law school rankings, it is first in the state of Florida, 12th among public law schools, and 31st among all law schools in the country. The donation came after Mr. Levin played a key role in the State of Florida’s $13 billion settlement against Big Tobacco to recover expenditures for treating illnesses caused by cigarette smoking. The legislation Mr. Levin wrote and helped to get passed by the Florida legislature was described at the time as the single biggest blow against the tobacco industry in United States history. In 2006, Mr. Levin gave another $2 million cash gift to the law school to have a state-of-the-art trial advocacy facility built. At the same time, Teri Levin donated $1 million to the law school in the name of her late husband, and Mr. Levin’s brother, Allen Richard Levin. Mr. Levin’s most recent contribution of 300,000 shares of stock in Charlotte’s Web Holdings, LLC is presently valued at $6.0 million. Charlotte’s Web specializes in the health benefits of cannabidiol, including the treatment of Dravet Syndrome, a catastrophic form of in-

FemFest is celebrating its third year April 25 to 28 FemFest has announced its official 2019 lineup featuring new events and old favorites. Dates are set for April 25 to 28.

This year, FemFest is proud to partner with OASIS Florida, an HIV prevention

and care organization dedicated to helping those who are affected by HIV/AIDS and preventing the spread through education and awareness. OASIS will be offering free, rapid HIV testing at FemFest events. Since 2016, the organizers of FemFest have raised nearly $10,000 for local non-profits. All proceeds raised during FemFest will go directly to providing resources to these well deserving programs.

tractable epilepsy that begins in infancy. “I’ve always believed if you’re going to give, you should do it while you’re living so that you can see it being used and impacting others’ lives,” Levin said. “My hope is that the students who graduate from the Levin College of Law will continue that legacy and fight for and impact the lives of others in a positive and meaningful way.” Mr. Levin also has a longstanding history of generosity to the University of West Florida, in his hometown of Pensacola. Last year, he gifted his waterfront home and estate, known as Timeless Tanglewood, to the institution. The home, including the gifted artwork and antiques, was valued at more than $8 million and is the largest gift by a living donor in UWF’s history. More than 20 years ago, Mr. Levin endowed a professorship at UWF in honor of his father, Abe Levin, which was valued at $1 million. In 2017, he gave $100,000 to support UWF football, as well as $550,000 to establish the Reubin O’D. Askew Institute for Multidisciplinary Studies. Fred Levin is one of the most successful trial attorneys in the country. He has received more than twenty-five jury verdicts in excess of $1,000,000 (six in excess of $10,000,000). He is a member of the Inner Circle of Advocates, and has been listed in every edition of the publication “Best Lawyers in America.” Mr. Levin received the “Perry Nichols Award” in 1994, which is the highest honor bestowed by the Florida Justice Association. It is given in recognition for a person’s lifetime achievements in the pursuit of justice. In 1999, Mr. Levin

was named one of the “Top Ten Litigators” in the country by the National Law Journal. Also, in 1999, Mr. Levin was honored at the United Nations by being made a Chief in the Republic of Ghana. This honor was bestowed on Mr. Levin because of his lifetime of dedication to equal justice for people of all races. In 2009, Mr. Levin was inducted into the National Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame. When asked about his greatest accomplishment, however, Mr. Levin states he is most proud of his idea in 1993 of rewriting the Florida Medicaid Third Party Recovery Act to permit the State of Florida to sue the Tobacco Industry to recover expenditures for treating illnesses caused by cigarette smoking. Mr. Levin wrote the legislation and was instrumental in its passage. Immediately after its passage, the legislation was described as “the single biggest blow against the tobacco industry in United States history.” The legislation eventually resulted in a $13 billion dollar settlement for the State of Florida. Founded in Pensacola, Florida, in 1955, the Levin Papantonio Law Firm has earned a reputation as one of the most successful personal injury law firms in the nation. The law firm’s attorneys handle claims throughout the country involving prescription drugs; medical devices; defective products; securities; consumer protection, and all other types of personal injury claims. Levin Papantonio has earned more than $4 billion in jury verdicts and settlements, litigating against some of the largest corporations in the world.

Escambia County celebrates historic NOLF Site 8 land exchange The Escambia County Board of Commissioners celebrated the historic land transfer and future of Naval Outlying Landing Field Site 8 with a ceremony on Monday, April 1 at Site 8, located in Beulah. During the ceremony, Escambia County recognized those who were involved in making this historic land exchange a reality. County officials, local leaders and members of the community joined Escambia County to celebrate the occasion. The monumental exchange is a win-win for both the U.S. Navy and the residents of Escambia County. The Navy received a new training airfield that better meets their training mission, in an area without encroachment issues. County residents received approximately 635 acres of prime property to utilize for improvements in the heart of the growing Beulah community. Following initial discussions and coordination between the U.S. Navy and Escambia County, the President signed the National Defense Authorization Act in 2015 that authorized the historic land exchange. In 2016, the land exchange agreement was formalized with the intention to transfer the property at NOLF Site 8 to Escambia County, in exchange for a suitable replacement. Escambia County purchased land in

Santa Rosa County and began construction in 2016 on what is now called OLFX. Naval Facilities Southeast Region in Jacksonville, Navy Installations Command and Whiting Field coordinated with Escambia County to ensure requirements for the training mission at NAS Whiting Field were met for the new outlying field. On Jan. 29, the deeds were exchanged, finalizing the transfer. NAS Whiting Field opened Naval Outlying Landing Field-X for flight training operations on Jan. 30. NOLF Site 8 was originally constructed in 1940 as an auxiliary airfield for Pensacola NAS. At approximately 635 acres, Site 8, along with NOLFs Spencer and Pace, was one of the oldest NOLFs still in use until the land transfer with Escambia County in 2019. Site 8 was initially used as a fixed wing training field. The field had undergone several changes and was temporarily closed in the mid to late 1950s. In 1964, the NOLF was brought back into service as an NOLF to support NAS Whiting Field’s rotary-pilot training mission. The NOLF was used as a primary tactical training asset by TRAWING 5. The field provided facilities to support training in rotary tactics, confined area landings, platform landings, external loads missions, hot refueling and was tentatively studied to support night vision training.

Enhanced enforcement of shorebird protections began April 1 Gulf Islands National Seashore has begun its annual effort to protect nesting shorebirds, and reduce the number of shorebirds killed by vehicle traffic in the national seashore’s Fort Pickens and Santa Rosa areas. Efforts will include lowering speed limits to 25 mph on Hwy. 399, installing radar speed signs and speed humps, and increasing speed limit enforcement patrols. All measures are meant to provide nesting shorebirds and their chicks the best chance to survive through the nesting and fledgling process. Adult birds and their tiny chicks are sometimes struck by vehicles as they look for food near or on roadways. In order to decrease the number of road kills, posted speed limits will be temporarily reduced to 25 mph near nesting areas. By observing posted speed limits and watching carefully for birds, you can help to protect the nesting colonies. By September, nesting is complete and normal use of the roads will resume. Each year, beginning in late-February and ending in late summer, the seashore provides some of the remaining undeveloped nesting habitat for several species of ground nesting shorebirds including least terns, snowy plovers, Wilson’s plovers, and black skimmers. Least terns come from as far away as Central and South America to raise their young on these beaches. In addition to roadway changes, small

portions of the seashore are closed to all visitors. If visitors find themselves besieged by birds, it means that you are near an unmarked nesting area or young chicks. Please leave the area by backtracking; eggs are very small, well camouflaged, and hard to see. Intrusion into the nesting areas will cause the birds to take flight, leaving their nests vulnerable to heat and predators. The adult birds will often dive at intruders in an effort to drive them away from the colony. Alarmed birds may then fly low across the road and into the paths of oncoming vehicles. Created in 1971, the national seashore stretches 160 miles along the northern coast of the Gulf of Mexico in Florida and Mississippi, and includes barrier islands, maritime forests, historic forts, bayous, and marine habitat.

It also would allow “any person of interest” to submit a 50-word position statement to outline “why the person supports or opposes the amendment.” Those statements would be posted on the Department of State’s website. The Attorney General would also have the authority to ask the Supreme Court to rule on whether proposed amendments are policy changes that the Legislature could make in lieu of amending the Constitution. That answer – a yes or a no –

would be required to be printed on the ballot measure for voters to see. “On the ballot, we want to ensure that when someone walks in to vote, they understand what they are voting on,” Grant said. “The voters should know, ‘Do I agree with x enough to pay the price tag on it?’ ” The legislation would impact proposed constitutional changes on the 2020 ballot. History shows that ballot measures are often backed by big money. For example, Disney Worldwide Services, Inc. and the Seminole Tribe of Flor-

ida bankrolled an amendment on the November ballot that is designed to make it harder to expand gambling in the state. Also, it has been common for out-of-state firms to be hired to gather petition signatures. Two environmental groups, however, chastised the House proposal because they argued it is designed to discourage citizens from pursuing ballot initiatives. “To us, this bill is transparent in that the Legislature wants sole authority to put things on the ballot,” said David Cullen, a lobbyist for the Sierra Club. “Have a little respect for future voters who disagree with you … that’s the essence of democracy.” State Rep. Joseph Geller, DAventura, was upset that committee members were not given more time to discuss the petition process under the proposal, which emerged this week. He said he agrees some restrictions ought to be in place, but that there was “too much coming too late.” “I think some restrictions are needed and we need to take a good look at this, but I feel rushed,” Geller said.

WILDFIRE COULD BE SIGN OF THINGS TO COME By JIM TURNER NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA

TALLAHASSEE – A more than 600acre wildfire in Bay County is a preview of the coming months as millions of tons of downed trees remain strewn across parts of Northwest Florida after Hurricane Michael, the state’s agriculture commissioner warned Monday. “Unfortunately, we know this is just one of many to come during the dry season,” Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried said while giving a brief update on the fire.. The blaze near the city of Callaway required homes to be evacuated and was about 50 percent contained by Monday morning. It also highlights the need for state and federal funding for Hurricane Michael recovery, Fried said. “Other parts of our country have seen (federal) disaster packages within weeks after a disaster,” Fried, appearing at Sandy Creek Airpark in Panama City, said. “And now almost six months later we are still waiting. This is absolutely unacceptable.” This weekend’s blaze, if it occurred a year ago, may have been limited to three

to five acres, she said. But like many parts of the heavily rural region where Hurricane Michael caused massive damage in October, the downed trees have caused problems for firefighters to gain access, along with providing fuel for the fire. Hurricane Michael made landfall in Mexico Beach as a Category 4 hurricane and roared through an area that is reliant on the timber industry. Most of the 72 million tons of downed trees remain on the ground between the Gulf Coast and the Georgia border. “Under normal conditions it would have been a few hours and a few acres,” Fried said. “But because of the fact of all the timber on the ground and because the weather conditions, it escalated to be the 600-plus (acres) because of all the fuel on the ground and the inability to get there.” Fried has requested $39 million from state lawmakers for debris removal, reforestation and new firefighting equipment. The House has offered at least $7.5 million for new wildfire protection equipment in its budget proposal for the fiscal year beginning July 1, while the Senate budget proposal is at about $4 million for

the equipment. The Senate budget proposal also features $220 million for hurricane recovery, which would bring the state response to the storm to $1.8 billion. House and Senate leaders will negotiate a final budget during the next month. The threat of wildfires in the region hit by the hurricane is considered 10 times higher than normal, and Florida State Forester Jim Karels said the conditions are starting to get drier. “We’re all standing here in winter coats and cold conditions and we’re talking about wildfires, where in Florida when we’re talking about wildfires it’s usually 90 degrees, a lot of heat and we’re all suffering from heat and humidity,” Karels said Monday. “These conditions out there yesterday were dry, but they weren’t drought dry. Actually, the soils are quite wet yet. Our dry conditions here start now and go into June and sometimes into July.” The fire over the weekend required 20 homes to be evacuated, but no structural damage had been attributed to this fire, Karels said. Last month, Karels warned Gov. Ron DeSantis and members of the Florida

Cabinet that the Panhandle faces a threat that could top the recent California wildfires. “Catastrophic fire in these kinds of events mean big aircraft that I’ve got to bring in under federal contract,” Karels said on March 12. “You could see fires that are running $10 (million) to $100 million, similar to the West, if we don’t get rid of the debris.” The entire debris total from Michael is considered 10 times the amount left by Hurricane Irma, which hit far more areas of the state in September 2017. Michael devastated the region’s timber industry, which accounted for $1.3 billion of the storm’s $1.5 billion in agriculture damage. The Department of Environmental Protection has estimated that removing trees from state waterways has already cost the state $19.4 million, a dent in the estimated $167 million needed to fully clear the waters. Another $8.6 million has been spent on recovery activities at state parks, where the restoration work is projected at $55 million. State park cleanup efforts after Irma and Hurricane Matthew in 2016 reached a combined $40 million.

HOSPITAL REGULATORY CHANGES REVIVED IN SENATE By CHRISTINE SEXTON NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA

TALLAHASSEE – After rebuffing the legislation initially, a Senate panel gave approval Monday to a pared-back bill that would eliminate controversial regulations for Florida hospitals. The Senate Health Policy Committee voted 9-1 to revamp the state’s “certificate of need” laws, which require regulators to determine that there is a “need” before certain new health-care services can be offered or new facilities can be built. The bill (SB 1712) would maintain the regulations – which are designed to manage the growth of healthcare facilities – for nursing homes, hospices and socalled “tertiary” services. But it would eliminate the requirement that the state sign off on hospital construction, so long as the new hospitals have at least 100 beds and agree to meet minimum charity-care requirements. The new hospitals also would have to accept Medicare and Medicaid patients. “This is not your parents’ CON repeal bill,” said Sen. Aaron Bean, R-Fernandina Beach. But the Senate bill doesn’t have enough protections to assuage the fears of Elaine Thompson, president and chief executive officer of Lakeland Regional Health. Critics of eliminating the certificate of need program argue, in part, that a repeal could lead to new hospitals drawing insured patients from older facilities, some of which provide costly specialized services.

Thompson said her hospital, located in Polk County, offers safety-net services for the poor and uninsured. Also, for example, the facility has the only comprehensive care stroke program in the county and provides a high-risk obstetrics program. Thompson said 76 percent of the hospital’s caseload is paid by government programs, either Medicaid or Medicare, and the payments are “fixed.” Just 24 percent of the patient caseload is commercially insured patients. “If any of this commercial payment volume was to leave this under-served community, our ability to keep those big safety-net programs there for the community would really (be at risk),” she said. Elimination of certificate of need regulations has been a top priority of House Speaker Jose Oliva, a Miami Lakes Republican who argues the state should take more of a free-market approach to health care. The House moved quickly to pass a bill to eliminate the program. But the proposal has run into resistance in the Senate. Senate Health Policy Chairwoman Gayle Harrell, a Stuart Republican sponsoring the Senate version, was forced last month to table her bill, in part, because of concerns from Bean and Sen. Ed Hooper, R-Clearwater. But Bean on Monday said the bill and the added protections are the “best of both worlds.” While lessening some restrictions, the revised version would preclude the development of so-called “boutique hospitals” that some fear would cherry-pick paying customers from

existing hospitals. The Senate legislation, however, is now drastically different from the version passed by the House. That bill (HB 21) would eliminate the certificate of need program in its entirety, including regulations for nursing homes, hospices and tertiary services such as burn units, neonatal intensive care centers and transplant programs. Sen. Janet Cruz, R-Tampa, was the only no vote on the bill Monday in the Senate committee. But it wasn’t because she opposed the measure. Cruz thanked Harrell for working hard on a proposal that ultimately was supported by traditional opponents of eliminating the CON program, including Jackson Memorial Hospital and UF Health Shands in Gainesville, two major safety-net providers. But Cruz said she had reservations about moving the bill along because she feared what would occur in negotiations between the House and Senate. “I know the goal is to get this bill out of committee, but I worry about what the House is doing,” she said. “I’m not confident that this version will remain as we are voting for it now,” she said. Sen. Darryl Rouson, D-St. Petersburg, said he would support the measure but added that “it’s not without reservations.” Rouson urged his fellow Democrats on the Senate Health Policy Committee to support the bill. The move, he said would send a “strong message to the House and the rest of the Senate in the next two committees that we prefer this version.”

Michael Grant, a Port approved a bill (HB 797) that Charlotte Republican whose would create a new process area sustained massive damthat would allow utilities to age in 2004 from Hurricane pass along costs to customers Charley. “When you come to for storm-protection projects, a situation where your schools including installing under- are shut down for weeks at a ground power lines. A simi- time and you’re importing lar bill (SB 796) has received workers from Wisconsin in the

middle of August to reconnect neighborhoods and businesses, you’ll understand why this bill is so important.” But opponents expressed concerns about the revamped regulatory process, which would create a new avenue for utilities to recover costs from customers. Jon Moyle, an attorney for the Florida Industrial Power Users Group, said the bill would lead to a “one-way financial street” that would spur higher utility bills. “This bill will increase rates,” said Moyle, whose group includes large electricity users and frequently is involved in utility-regulatory issues. Lawmakers, regulators and utility companies have long faced questions about why more power lines are not buried underground in the hurricaneprone state. Those questions were refueled after widespread power outages from hurricanes Michael and Hermine in 2016, Hurricane Irma in 2017 and Hurricane Matthew in 2018. But a big part of the issue is that it is expensive to take down overhead power lines in already-developed areas and bury them underground. The legislation moving

through the House and Senate deals with a process that utilities go through at the Florida Public Service Commission to submit plans for hardening their systems to better withstand punishing hurricanes – and how such improvements should be financed. Generally, utilities such as Florida Power & Light, Duke Energy Florida, Tampa Electric Co. and Gulf Power incorporate storm-hardening costs in their base electric rates. The Public Service Commission goes through months-long processes to determine base rates, which involve financial and technical issues that touch myriad parts of utility operations. While base rates are set for multiple years, utilities also go before the commission annually for approval to pass along costs to customers for specific expenses. A large expense, for example, that is estimated each year and passed along to customers is the cost of natural gas and other fuel for power plants. The House and Senate bills would set up a similar process for utilities to recover stormprotection costs, including the costs of putting power lines

underground, outside of the base-rate process. The utilities would also be able to earn a rate of return – profit – on the projects. Zayne Smith, a lobbyist for AARP Florida, told the House Government Operations & Technology Appropriations Subcommittee on Monday that her group opposes revamping the way utilities can recover the costs. “AARP certainly supports a harder, stronger, more-resilient grid,” Smith said. “Our members depend on power more than probably many people do. But the way this bill is written will also shift costs to consumers more than it already is. Our contention is, keep it in the base rate.” The House panel, however, voted unanimously to approve the bill. Sponsor Randy Fine, R-Palm Bay, pointed to the costs of restoring power after storms and the financial and personal impacts of outages on businesses and residents. “Certainly, taking lines that go above ground and putting them underground will cost money. And there will be an expense associated with it,” Fine said. “But let’s talk about the cost of doing nothing.”

SENATORS BACK MEASURE ON PRISON SENTENCES By ANA CEBALLOS NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA

TALLAHASSEE – A bill that would give the Legislature power to decide on a law-by-law basis whether to reduce past prison sentences cleared a Senate panel Monday following tearful testimony from criminal-justice reform advocates. The proposal came after Floridians in November overwhelmingly passed Amendment 11, which in part repealed a century-old provision called the “Savings Clause” to allow revisions to criminal laws to affect sentences for older crimes. “The ability to make criminal justice reforms retroactive is the greatest ray of hope we have,” said Paul Heroux, with Florida Cares, an advocacy group for people who are incarcerated. “For many of our membership, the message of retroactivity is a hope so wonderful that it is painful.”

The bill (SB 1656), sponsored by Sen. Tom Lee, R-Thonotosassa, would “clarify” Amendment 11 and is backed by Attorney General Ashley Moody. The bill says all criminal statute revisions should apply prospectively unless the Legislature explicitly says they apply to older cases. The measure was approved Monday by the Criminal Justice Committee, with Sen. Randolph Bracy, D-Orlando, opposed. “I feel like we are thwarting the will of the voters,” Bracy said. “For that reason, I am not going to support the bill as amended.” The bill would allow people awaiting trial to benefit from prospective criminal statute revisions, a provision sought by Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg. “If you have been charged with (aggravated) assault in February and you get your final judgment in October … at sentencing you would be charged under

the new sentencing scheme the Legislature decided on July 1,” Brandes explained during committee on Tuesday. With the Legislature able to make sentencing changes, Lee said he thinks it could help make criminal-justice reforms. “I honestly think it is going to make it easier to pass criminal justice reform,” Lee argued. “If we put ourselves in a posture where every member in the Legislature has to think about how this may automatically apply to a post-conviction population, then people are going be worried about who we’re letting out of jail.” Lee added that lawmakers would have to deal with the consequences in the “next mail piece” when they run for reelection. “I have been around long enough, and you all have gone through enough campaigns, to know what those mail pieces look like,” Lee said.

But for people like Heroux, the “ray of hope” was the passage of Amendment 11. Audrey Hudgens, whose son, William, was sentenced to life in prison at age 21 for committing an armed robbery in the 1990s, said retroactive application of new sentencing laws is her only hope to see her son out of prison. Hudgens said her son was carrying a gun, but never used it. She added that her son committed the crime when he was doing “$300 of cocaine a day,” an addiction he struggled to brush off. “For 22 years, we have held onto every possibility of hope, including the overwhelming passage of Amendment 11,” Hudgens said in tears. “However, with this bill there is the presumption that future criminal justice reforms will not and should not be retroactive.” The bill must clear one more Senate committee before it can get a full floor vote. A similar measure is moving forward in the House.
