Judge allows resentencing of Antwan Stroud to go forward

Jun. 23—Resentencing will go forward for Antwan Stroud, the Black man whose lawyers claim received a harsher sentence than a White co-defendant in charges stemming from racial unrest last year on South Willow Street.

On Monday, Superior Court Judge Will Delker rejected a request by Hillsborough County prosecutors Thomas Craig to reverse his decision to throw out Stroud's 30-day jail and hold a new sentencing hearing.

Delker wrote that he has not overlooked or misapprehended any points of fact or law. The resentencing is scheduled for July 30.
