A Broward judge says an educational report on accused Parkland, Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz can be made public.
During a hearing this morning, the judge denied a defense motion to block the release of the heavily-redacted report on grounds that it will jeopardize Cruz’s right to a fair trial.
Cruz was present in the Fort Lauderdale courtroom today, dressed in an orange prison jumpsuit, staring at the floor.
The report was compiled by a consultant hired by the school district to examine Cruz’s educational history in Broward County and support services offered to him.
The defense attorney argued that it shows Cruz’s serious mental issues that were raised by his grade school teachers years ago.
The 19-year-old faces a possible death sentence if found guilty of killing 17 people and wounding 17 others at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February.
