You Don't Want Me As Your Lawyer

At the New York Times website, "Doug" of N.Y.C., N.Y., comments:
What is stunning, at least to me as an attorney, is that a number of charges were brought under the indictment.

Perhaps first degree murder or abuse were not proven, but the elements of manslaughter seem to have been met.

I am taken aback that the prosecution did not request JNOV (judgment notwithstanding of verdict) on the manslaughter charge, perhaps its not possible under florida law.
No, Doug, it's not possible under Florida law.
