Shepard v. Florida Department of Corrections (21-CV-14003-BB) Posted 03/17/2021

Petitioner Brian Jeremiah Shepard has filed a petition under 28 U.S.C. § 2254 for writ of habeas corpus seeking to vacate his state court conviction for burglary of a dwelling, petit theft, and resisting an officer without violence. Petitioner contends that he is being held in violation of the Constitution, laws, or treaties of the United States because (1) the state trial court erred in denying his motion for judgment of acquittal on his burglary of a dwelling charge and (2) the state trial court erred in overruling defense objections to improper burden shifting and improper comments made during the State’s closing argument.
