James Herard, 25, was convicted by a Fort Lauderdale jury in May of murdering two people. The jury recommended a death sentence. Well, during a sentencing hearing Friday, Herard, who did not testify during his trial, took the opportunity to dare the judge to take the recommendation and sentence him to death.

“Honestly and truly, I’m not asking you to spare me,” Herard said. “Go ahead and do what you gonna do. I pretty much dare you to give me the death sentence because I’m innocent.” He added, “I’m actually hoping you give me the death penalty because I know the Supreme Court won’t allow me to die for something I didn’t commit.”

Testimony in Herard’s sentencing will reconvene later this month.
