Arnstein & Lehr Fort Lauderdale Partner Richard L. Rosenbaum’s name appeared as defense lawyer for Kyan Bucknor in a July 24 article in The South Florida Sun Sentinel, titled “Shooting victim’s forgiveness undercut by defendant’s refusal to confess.” The article discusses the conviction of Bucknor for the 1999 attempted murder of Broward Sheriff Deputy Alcibiades Hibbert, who survived the shooting and asked the judge to give Bucknor another chance at freedom. Bucknor, however, refused to admit he shot Hibbert, blaming it on a friend. Originally sentenced to life in prison, Bucknor had to be re-sentenced in light of a 2010 U.S. Supreme Court decision abolishing life terms for juveniles except in homicide cases. The article explains Mr. Rosenbaum’s request to the judge to sentence Bucknor to 35 years in prison, enough to punish him for the crime while giving him a chance to live a productive life after his release.
