Death Penalty Sought For Accused Parkland School Shooter

Mar 14, 2018

Florida prosecutors will seek the death penalty for Nikolas Cruz. Cruz is the former student accused of murdering 17 people in a shooting spree last month at a Parkland high school. Ahead of a court hearing on Wednesday, State Attorney for Broward County Michael Satz filed the notice with Judge Elizabeth Scherer of his office’s intent to seek the death sentence. After the filing, Cruz’s attorneys repeated their offer for Cruz to plead guilty if prosecutors agreed to not pursue the death penalty.
