LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Closing arguments are expected in the Yousel Rivera trial today. Rivera is accused of shooting and wounding a Cape Coral officer at point blank range during a traffic stop in 2011.
Officer David Wagoner survived, thanks to his bullet proof vest. Yesterday the defense rested after questioning a doctor who testified that Rivera was suffering from the onset of a seizure when he shot the officer.
The State argues he was aware enough to tell his girlfriend to calm down after the shooting and tell her he did not want to get caught.
