In most states, the Prosecution has a right to request a jury, same as a defendant. They would have to agree to a bench trial. Not sure about Florida, but likely the same there.
I wasn’t aware of that. I’m not sure why the prosecution would insist on a jury trial in any case. In NYC a while back a group of police officers who were charged with murder after shooting an unarmed civilian opted for a bench trial and were acquitted of all charges. Why wouldn’t the prosecution have insisted on a jury trial in a case like that?
