Kyle Christopher HannoverKyle Christopher Hannover of Dania Beach, Florida was arrested last Thursday for a fatal hit-and-run that ended the life of 81-year-old Luis Angel Dominguez of Pembroke Pines.

According to the arrest report, the fatal hit-and-run took place on the night of April 13 at Everglades Holiday Park. Witnesses at the scene claim Hannover and Dominguez got into a heated argument for unspecified reasons. Hannover loudly told the older man to “get out of his country,” sources allege.

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 1.51.02 PMYesterday was a first for me. It was the first time I ever saw the lead detective in a murder case take the stand and testify that the accused was not guilty. It was also the first time I ever saw a prosecutor cross-examine his lead investigator and try to impeach him.

Its like we are living in bizarro world over here!

But these shockers are just the beginning. What you are about to learn will blow your mind. In fact, what I saw yesterday actually has me pretty upset. It took me a day of digesting what I saw before I could write about it. More importantly, the implications of yesterday’s testimony go far beyond the defenses in this case.

Screen Shot 2016-01-22 at 7.13.27 PMI can almost hear the moans coming from the State Attorney’s Office this week.  Poor guys, can even a week go by without another bombshell motion being filed in the Peraza case?

Last week we learned Jermaine McBean, the man who sadly lost his life in this case, suffered from some very serious mental health problems that explain why he would walk down the street with a rifle, freaking everyone out, and then point the gun at police.

This week was even worse – we learned that Deputy Peraza has actually been immune from prosecution the entire time. No, not because he wears a badge, but because his case presents a textbook example of Stand Your Ground immunity under Florida law.

Earlier this week, Deputy Peraza’s attorney, Eric Schwartzreich, filed a Motion to Dismiss citing immunity from prosecution in accordance with Florida’s Stand Your Ground laws. The motion is public record and is available on the Broward Clerk’s website. You can also read it here: Motion to Dismiss (Stand Your Ground)
