Parkland teacher arrested for leaving loaded gun in a public bathroom

Parkland teacher arrested for leaving loaded gun in a public bathroom

Accused Parkland high school shooter Nikolas Cruz was back in court Wednesday and attorneys tried to figure out if he needs a public defender or if he could afford counsel on his own.

The idea of arming teachers gained momentum after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas in February.

"He wants that money donated to an organization that he believes would facilitate healing in our community", defense attorney Melissa McNeil told the court.

Finkelstein said if annuity deposits were to be made to Cruz's account monthly, he stands to gain as much as $800,000 during his expected lifetime.

For the sake of the families involved, Finkelstein said, he would prefer his client take a plea and serve 34 consecutive life sentences - one for each of the counts on which he's been indicted. He also has Microsoft stock that was worth $2,227 as of Tuesday and $353 in a Wells Fargo bank account.

Cruz's wealth now consists of 24 Microsoft stocks worth about $2,200 from which he receives dividends, and he is entitled to $25,000 from his mother's life insurance, which he has not yet obtained.

The Miami Herald reported last month that Boca Raton attorney Audra Simovitch filed an amended petition in Broward County probate court in March asking that Rocxanne Deschamps, a friend of Cruz's mother who cared for Cruz and his younger brother after their mother died, should not be appointed to represent the estate.

Judge Scherer said she would decide on the matter of Cruz's indigence before April 27, when a hearing is scheduled to set the trial's schedule.

In the aftermath of the deadly shooting that occurred in the once-innocent hallways of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, gun control laws have come to the forefront of concerns percolating throughout America.

Prosecutors have said they will seek the death penalty. The judge entered a plea of not guilty on Cruz's behalf.
