Zachary Cruz, Brother of Florida School Shooter, Arrested

Zachary Cruz, Brother of Florida School Shooter, Arrested

Zachary Cruz, the half-brother of Parkland high school gunman Nikolas Cruz, has been arrested again for getting too close to a Florida high school.

Zachary Cruz was later held on a $500,000 bond for the second-degree misdemeanor charge, an amount his defense lawyer called "outrageous".

The 18 year old was arrested in March for trespassing at Parkland's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School - where 17 people died February 14 in the mass shooting attack - after being told by school officials to stay away. "We all drive past and walk past schools every day and many public parks are located near schools so I'm concerned if, as it appears, [Broward County Sheriff's Office] has violated him for going near a school", Kimok told ABC News in an email Wednesday.

According to this warrant, Zachary was about 25 feet from the west parking lot of Park Vista Community High School in Lake Worth, Florida.




Zachary Cruz was reportedly booked into Palm Beach County jail on Tuesday evening. He had admitted to sheriff's deputies that he had been to the high school three times since the shootings. Kimok represented Cruz on the original trespassing charge. Among the conditions of his probation, he was ordered to stay away from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High school and any school where he wasn't enrolled. Authorities said he was driving a auto without a license and found within 25 feet of a school.

"We agreed that Zach could not go on school property but there was nothing in his plea that said he couldn't go near a school".

The brother of confessed Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz is back behind bars. Prosecutors have said they will seek the death penalty.

A non-profit organization made the announcement on behalf of 18-year-old Zachary Cruz. The group claimed in an email news release that Zachary Cruz's rights are being violated and he has been subjected to "intimidation" exclusively because of the identity of his brother.
