“Stand Your Ground” hearing set for Pasco theatre shooting case

Mr. TJ Grimaldi, Attorney

TAMPA-FL (July 5, 2016) A hearing has been set nearly three years after a movie theatre shooting that resulted in the death of Chad Oulsen by Curtis Reeves Jr. It was announced that the hearing will occur in February 2017 in the murder trial that will determine whether Reeves acted in self-defense, or will be convicted of second-degree murder.

An argument that began over a cellphone in a movie theatre in Wesley Chapel has been covered by international news media. As the argument between Reeves and the late Oulson developed, Reeves claims he acted in self-defense by shooting Oulson, as he feared for his life. The victim’s wife, Nicole Oulson, was injured as she sought to protect her late husband, and was shot in the hand as a result.

The hearing has encountered some delays in the prosecution, and has been long-anticipated.

“While we understand that this is a complicated case, which made international news, the fact that the Stand Your Ground motion is occurring more than three years after the shooting is a difficult pill to swallow for Ms. Oulson and this firm,” says TJ Grimaldi, Ms. Oulson’s attorney, and partner at McIntyre Thanasides Law Firm.

Mr. Grimaldi expressed the desire to move forward in the case and to seek closure for the victims involved in this terrible tragedy.

“Mr. Reeves is allowed to continue to be at home, around his family, while Ms. Oulson is forced to learn to be a single mother, without the help and companionship of her husband, while having no answers. To say that is justice is difficult to believe.”
