Miami – June 18, 2019
“Since July 18, 2016, our community has been traumatized by North Miami Police Officer Jonathan Aledda’s shooting of mental health therapist Charles Kinsey.
Last evening, a jury decided that the shooting was not an error or an accident, but a crime.
We are grateful to each of the jurors for their thoughtful evaluation of all the evidence and thank Miami-Dade Circuit Court Judge Alan Fine for his professionalism in the handling of this case.
This was a difficult case for all the parties involved and for the people of Miami Dade County. I also want to thank the community, witnesses and victims for participating in the criminal justice system and for supporting our efforts to hold people accountable for their actions regardless of who they are or what position they hold.
I am very proud of my trial team, Chief Assistant State Attorney Don L. Horn, Assistant Chief of Special Prosecutions and Legal Unit Christine Zahralban, Senior Trial Counsel Reid Rubin, the amazing support staff who assisted them, and my dedicated investigators who brought witnesses from across the state for all the different proceedings and trial.
I truly appreciate their service and unrelenting dedication to this community. They are members of the Best Team in America.
Now my legal team will prepare for the upcoming sentencing phase of this case.”
