James Scott Newman, the 14-year-old gunman in the Pine Middle School shooting, has agreed to enter a plea this Friday and will be sentenced…
David Houston, the boy’s lawyer, said this was the best outcome.
“The family and James look forward to the opportunity to put his matter behind them by accepting responsibility for what he has done and ask the court for what they felt to be the appropriate penalty,” Houston said.
“The family and James continue to extend their apologies to the young people injured in this event and their families,” Houston said.
Since James is a juvenile the details of the plea won’t be released until Friday.
