Parkland shooter’s jailhouse assault trial will go on, judge rules

Jury selection in the case is scheduled to begin Monday. If convicted, Cruz, 23, faces a sentence of 15 years in prison — a footnote compared to the death sentence he faces if convicted of any of the 17 first-degree murder charges he’s facing for the Feb. 14, 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
