    Anti-death-penalty prosecutor challenges Florida governor

    Anti-death-penalty prosecutor challenges Florida governor

    ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A Florida state attorney says the governor overstepped his bounds when he removed her from a case after she pledged to not pursue the death penalty in any cases.

    State Attorney Aramis Ayala filed a motion in court Monday asking a judge to allow her to present that argument in court.

    “Every day State Attorneys here in Florida make important decisions on who to charge, what to charge and what to prioritize,” Ayala wrote in the motion. “Giving the governor the tremendous and unfettered discretion to interfere in that decision making would be unprecedented and could undermine the entire justice system in Florida.”
