LIFE —NO PAROLE: Parkland Shooter Nikolas Cruz Verdict is In, Jury Says No Death Penalty

The jury has recommended life in prison without the possibility of parole for Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz.

From CNN:

Cruz pleaded guilty last year to 17 counts of murder and 17 counts of attempted murder in the Valentine’s Day 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida.

The jury was tasked with deciding whether Cruz will receive the death penalty or life in prison without the possibility of parole. Jurors must be unanimous in their decision for a death sentence, according to Florida law.

The jury has recommended a sentence of life without the possibility of parole on initial counts against Parkland massacre gunman Nikolas Cruz. Their recommendation is still being read.
