A Florida man who was recently convicted of murdering two people delivered one final, defiant message to the judge who is currently considering a jury’s recommendation to sentence him to the death penalty.

“Go ahead and do what you gonna do. I pretty much dare you to give me the death sentence because I’m innocent,” James Herard said in court on Friday.

He went even further: “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.”

Herard, 25, was convicted for his participation in a series of Dunkin Donuts robberies and for encouraging the “execution” of a man, CBS Miami reports. He was also previously convicted of the murder of Kiem Huynh, 58, in 2008 and was sentenced to life in prison.

Herard’s outburst on Friday isn’t out of character as the convicted murderer also made national news when he barked like a dog during a court appearance following his arrest.
