Terence Lenamon’s upcoming capital case docket involves the death penalty defense of Michael James Jackson. Jackson is currently a resident of Florida’s Death Row.
Continuing Impact of Hurst on Florida Death Penalty
This case is one of the many Florida death penalty cases that have gone under review in the aftermath of Hurst v. Florida. For details on the Supreme Court of the United States’ ruling in Hurst, see:

For a complete listing of the cases impacted by Hurst, see the ongoing online reporting table provided by the Death Penalty Information Center, which explains that Michael James Jackson was granted a new sentencing hearing in June 2017 by the Florida Supreme Court.
The table also lists those who have been denied re-hearings, or new sentencing trials, as well as those Death Row inmates that have been executed since the Hurst considerations began.

“A tough one,” says Terry. Why?
Well, for one thing, the Florida Supreme Court has already heard Mr. Jackson’s arguments and opined that “… Jackson’s death sentences are proportionate punishment for his capital offenses.”
