Parkland school shooter's brother Zachary Cruz arrested again

Parkland school shooter's brother Zachary Cruz arrested again

The younger brother of Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz is back behind bars Tuesday after violating his probation following a trespassing arrest at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Zachary Cruz was booked Tuesday night into Palm Beach County Jail, according to the jail website.

Zachary Cruz, the younger brother of accused Parkland shooter Nikolas Cruz, is in trouble again. Officials say he had been told to stay away from the school, something his attorney on the trespassing charge, Joseph Kimok, had denied. He had admitted to sheriff's deputies that he had been to the high school three times since the shootings.

He was also ordered to wear a Global Positioning System monitor and to remain at least a mile away from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas campus.

Authorities said Cruz violated those terms Saturday - by driving without a valid driver's license near a high school in Lake Worth, Fla., about 25 miles northeast of Parkland. The brothers are both former Stoneman Douglas students. "That just wasn't a condition we agreed to as part of his plea".

CDC confirms first death from E. Coli outbreak
The CDC previously linked the romaine lettuce with Yuma, Arizona, though the agency still hasn't named a specific producer. The government has also reported that at least 52 people have been hospitalized, 14 of which had kidney failure .

"Given the impossibly high bail, coupled with dehumanizing treatment in jail, Cruz was ultimately and unjustly forced to accept a guilty plea, just to escape the horrors of custody in the Broward main jail facility", according to the Nexus press release.

The law firm said it would give more information on the federal lawsuit at a press conference Thursday. Prosecutors said they are seeking the death penalty.

A nonprofit group by the name of Nexus Derechos Hermanos made the announcement on Wednesday on behalf of Zachary Cruz, 18, The Miami Herald reported.
