Cristian Fernandez

Cristian Fernandez has been incarcerated since March of 2011. He faces two separate trials – one of which carries a mandatory life without parole sentence if he is convicted. Cristian is 13 years old today, but he was barely twelve when he was arrested and subsequently indicted on first degree murder and aggravated child abuse by Florida State Attorney Angela Corey. The combination of charges allows Corey to seek life without parole, while eliminating the requirement that she prove Cristian intentionally caused his brother’s death.

Examination of the facts surrounding Cristian’s complex case provide insight into the State Attorney’s decisions as well as later actions she took against the boy. These will be detailed, along with the progression of events throughout this sad case. A petition I started, requesting that the State Attorney reverse the decision to try Cristian as an adult, may be found here. The petition has over 184,000 signatures
