Nikolas Cruz's brother to challenge $500K bail

Posted: Updated:

The brother of the suspected Florida high school gunman is scheduled to be in court for reconsideration of his $500,000 bail on a trespassing charge.

Attorneys for Zachary Cruz are expected to argue today that the bail is excessive. His bond was originally 25 dollars, typical for this type of case.

The 18-year-old was arrested March 19 after police found him skateboarding at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High after school hours. Administrators had told him not to come on campus.

Cruz is the younger brother of Nikolas Cruz, who is accused of killing 17 students and staff members at the school on Valentine's Day. The Cruz brothers attended the school but didn't graduate.

A recent search of Zachary Cruz's home found no weapons. He also underwent a psychiatric evaluation.
