The hearing Friday afternoon is expected to deal with several procedural issues, possibly including the setting of an initial trial date.

Cruz's public defender also is likely to ask to waive Florida's speedy trial rule. The rule generally requires that a felony defendant go to trial within 175 days of arrest unless it's waived.

His lawyer says Cruz would plead guilty if guaranteed a sentence of life without parole, but prosecutors seek the death penalty.





Will be watching to see is anything gets decided today on a trial date.

Well really not much was decided in Cruz's court hearing today, other then he waived his right to a speedy trail. Which we already knew they were going to do.

Another court date has been set for May 25th at 1:30.

Cruz is starting to look very scruffy.

His brother Zach was also there in support.

They're going to drag this one out for a while I imagine.

Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz on Friday waived his constitutional right to a speedy trial, giving his defense team more time to prepare his case.

In the interest of moving the case along, Broward Circuit Judge Elizabeth Scherer set a May 4 deadline for Cruz’s lawyers to formally request evidence — such as witness statements, videos, and police and autopsy reports — from prosecutors.

“I don’t want this case treading water, so to speak,” Scherer said.

Under Florida law, the speedy trial rule generally requires that a felony defendant go to trial within 175 days of arrest unless it's waived. By waiving it, a trial deadline is eliminated, giving lawyers on both sides an indefinite amount of time to prepare to take the case before a jury.

Cruz’s younger brother, Zachary, came and went from the hearing alone Friday. He watched his brother intently, seemingly hoping to make eye contact.

Nikolas Cruz, handcuffed to a belly chain and shackled at the ankles, shuffled into court, head down.

When he took a seat at the defense table, he sneaked a quick peek at prosecutors. His head remained deeply bowed for the remainder of his time in the courtroom.

When asked after court if he’d like to make a comment, Zachary Cruz, 18, said, “Nope.”

Nikolas Cruz’s next hearing was set for May 25. At that time lawyers will discuss how to proceed with the case, including which witnesses to depose first.

“I’d like to go through and figure out how many depositions you’re going to take,” the judge said. “I’m not looking to pin you down, I just mainly want to get the depositions, if they’re going to be taken, moving along.”





Cruz waived his right to the speedy trail in court yesterday, so this is likely to be one long, drawn out trail when it ever does really get started.

Also I am very much wanting to see the evidence they gather.  scratch

It's probably going to be like James Holmes's case, where he wasn't sentenced until three years after the crime.
