JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Jordan Davis' family says they're happy to have some closure in their son's death but that they won't stop seeking justice.
"We will continue to wait for justice for Jordan," said his mother Lucia McBath during a press conference following the reading of the verdict. "It's sad for Mr. Dunn that he will live the rest of his life in that sense of torment. And I will pray for him. And I've asked my family to pray for him."
Davis' father Ron thanked friends, family members, and well-wishers who had supported the family throughout the ordeal.
"He's going to learn that he must be remorseful for the killing of my son, that it was not just another day at the office. My son would never be just another day at the office where I can just leave the scene and be stoic."
Davis says it's not in his nature not to lash out and make inflammatory statements but that he has had to hold that in because he wants to represent his son better.
"It wasn't allowed to be said in the courtroom that he was a good kid but we'll say it. He was a good kid. There's a lot of good kids out there, a lot of good nephews, a lot of good grandsons, granddaughters, nieces, and they should have a voice that they shouldn't live in fear and walk around the streets worrying about if someone has a problem with somebody else."
Michael Dunn was convicted of three counts of attempted murder in the second degree and one count of shooting/throwing a deadly missile. Each attempted murder charge carries a minimum sentence of 20 years and a maximum of 30.
