Zachary Cruz Expected To Challenge $500K Trespassing Bond

The brother of suspected Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School gunman Nikolas Cruz is scheduled to be in court Thursday for reconsideration of his $500,000 bail on a trespassing charge.

Attorneys for Zachary Cruz are expected to argue that the bail is excessive. 

His bond was originally $25, typical for a trespassing charge, but a judge decided to increase it after learning this was at least the third time Zachary Cruz had allegedly gone to MSD after being told to stay away.

The 18-year-old was arrested March 19 after police found him skateboarding on the high school's campus 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 Feb. 14. 

The Cruz brothers attended Stoneman Douglas but didn't graduate.
