Miami – March 15, 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 in his effort to protect his client, Arnaldo Rios Soto.
The difficulties posed by this case are clearly represented by the jury’s inability to come to a verdict on three of the four charged offenses.
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.
I am very proud of my trial team, Chief Assistant State Attorney Don L. Horn, Assistant Chief of our Legal Unit, Christine Zahralban, and 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.
My prosecution team and I will be discussing the case to determine the appropriate course of action as to the unresolved counts.”
Katherine Fernandez Rundle, Miami-Dade State Attorney
