Shimeeka Gridine v State of Florida
Mr. Gridine pled guilty to attempted first-degree murder, attempted armed robbery and aggravated battery, crimes he committed at age 14, and was sentenced to 70 years in prison. The First District Court of Appeal affirmed Mr. Gridine's sentence but certified a question of great public importance regarding the sentencing of juvenile offenders.
