Angela Corey Voted Out

Congratulations to new 4th Circuit State Attorney Melissa Nelson, who unseated Jacksonville area State Attorney Angela Corey. It is rare to defeat an incumbent prosecutor in Florida, but Corey earned extremely negative support due to her controversial prosecutions of George Zimmerman, Melissa Alexander and her extremely heavy-handed treatment of juvenile defendants. There is currently a push to make it more difficult for prosecutors to charge juveniles as adults… Which may ultimately end up being Corey’s legacy.
