Man convicted of shooting teen girl wants new trial

Updated:

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - The man convicted of shooting a teen girl in the head was expected to face a judge Friday, but the hearing was continued.

Tyrone Mosby's defense team is trying to push for a new trial.

In March, Mosby was found guilty of attempted murder for shooting Danielle Sampson and leaving her permanently disabled.

Alma Fletcher said she has been waiting since last summer to see someone pay for what happened to her daughter.

The 16-year-old was shot in the head when a stray bullet tore through the family van in Pine Hills and left Sampson permanently disabled.

In March, Mosby was convicted of being the shooter, but the defense has been fighting that conviction ever since.

"Justice is not yet served until I see the shooter of this child behind bars and behind bars for good. That's where he belongs," Fletcher said.

One reason the defense said they wanted another chance was because they said deputies sat too close to the jury, while they were deliberating.

However, the judge threw that out.

The defense is also claiming the state withheld evidence during the trial and they've asked for a competency hearing to see if Mosby should have even been on trial.
