Governor Rick Scott issued the following statement regarding State Attorney Aramis Ayala’s failure to meet the deadline for filing a Notice of Intent to Seek the Penalty of Death in the State of Florida’s case against Emerita Mapp.
“It is absolutely outrageous that Aramis Ayala failed to seek justice in the case against Emerita Mapp who is accused of attacking multiple people and killing Zackery Ganoe. I have been clear that I stand with the victims of crime and their families and they deserve answers from the State Attorney’s Office on how this critical deadline was not met. I’ll continue to review reassigning cases from her office since she is failing to fight for victims and their families.” – Governor Rick Scott
We are awaiting comment from Ayala’s Office.
