Chardon shooter faces sentencing; victims’ families to speak out
A teenager who pleaded guilty in a deadly school shooting rampage faces up to life in prison at his sentencing in northeast Ohio on Tuesday.
Victims of 18-year-old T.J. Lane and relatives of the murdered victims will have a chance to address the sentencing judge in Chardon on his guilty plea to killing three students and wounding three more.
The shootings occurred 13 months ago at Chardon High School. Lane was in the school cafeteria waiting for a bus to his alternative school.
No clear motive has been detailed.
The hearing before Judge David Fuhry will offer families their first public chance to describe the pain inflicted by the shootings.
It is unclear whether Lane will address the judge.
