RECENT RELEASES - FLORIDA SUPREME COURT

STANDARD JURY INSTRUCTIONS IN CRIMINAL CASES--AMENDMENT. The Court authorized for publication and use amendments to the attempted homicide and homicide-related instructions--6.2, 6.3, 6.3(a), 6.4, 6.6, 6.7, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 7.5, 7.6, 7.7, and 7.7(a)--to remedy the situation which arose as a result of the Court's holding in State v. Spencer that "fundamental error resulted when the defendant's jury was instructed upon attempted manslaughter by act, but the instruction omitted instructions upon justifiable and excusable attempted homicide." The Court also adopted amendments pertaining to the reclassification of murder or attempted murder charges based upon the status of the victim as a law enforcement officer and adopted a new instruction covering the reclassification statute based upon the Court's decision in Ramroop v. State, in which the Court held that the state was required to prove that the defendant knew of the victim's status.

Second, the Leaving the Scene instructions, 28.4, 28.4(a), and 28.4(b), and the Aggravated Fleeing or Eluding instructions, 28.8(b), 28.8(c), 28.8(d), and 28.8(e), are amended to add a citation to Gaulden v. State, 195 So. 3d 1123 (Fla. 2016), with the definition for the phrase a vehicle is "involved in a crash," ' meaning if it collides with another vehicle, person, or object.' "
