A school shooting in Florida has a teenager named J’Morian Bell facing 25 years in prison for the attempted murder of 15-year-old fellow student Jaroderick Smith last year.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, Duck Dynasty cousin Zach Dasher is running for political office and he says the Sandy Hook school shooting can be blamed on a combination of post-modernism allegedly taught in today’s and Adam Lanza’s belief in atheism. Sandy Hook elementary school continues to suffer from dangerous situations since they recently had to evacuate over a bomb scare.
Bell was 17-years-old at the time of the school shooting. Smith was in a small fight with other students before the school shooting allegedly because the other students did not like one of his friends. The scuffle was broken up by teachers, and Bell says he was punched. However, prosecutors said “numerous witnesses at the scene refute that suggestion.”
Chief Assistant State Attorney Linda Drane Burdick said Bell approached Smith after the fight was over and said, “I have something for you.” Then he pulled the trigger on his handgun.
As part of a plea deal, J’Morian Bell pleaded no contest to discharge of weapon with a firearm, attempted murder, and possession of a firearm on school property. Bell will be serving 25 years for all the charges since each sentence runs concurrently. Bell also apologized to Smith, saying, “Life goes on, we can move on.”
The teen victim also released a statement that forgave Bell for the shooting, saying that he had “no hatred in my heart.”
“I honestly forgive you because I always live by the Bible,” said Smith via Burdick. “I’m so sorry to see my family and your family go through this rough time because of this unfortunate situation of a life that would have been taken away. But thank God, he was on my side and the people who prayers out to both of us.”
But the school shooting is not the only charges being leveled at J’Morian Bell. According to the Orlando Sentinel, the teenager still faces the possibility of life in prison based upon a home invasion shooting where 38-year-old Lance Whitten was killed. Bell is charged with first-degree murder for that incident.
