Apperson’s charges are upgraded to attempted second-degree murder. Apperson is also charged with shooting into an occupied vehicle and aggravated assault with a firearm. State Attorney:
Our law enforcement community and the State Attorney’s Office works vigorously to ensure people may travel our busy streets, going about their business, without fear. Every resident and visitor to Seminole County deserves this freedom.
My reaction to these charges is a pronounced shrug. I’ve reviewed the charges and they don’t change the facts. The prosecutors have put their heads together and tried to contemplate what could be the most serious charges, but that doesn’t really change anything. This is a case of self-defense.
