Howard Finkelstein, another of Cruz's attorneys, agreed. "Whatever money that he's entitled to, he does not want that money". "He would like that money donated to an organization that the victims' families believe would be able to facilitate the healing in our community". These modest amounts would hardly put a dent in his costly legal defense, though an annuity Cruz inherited may well be worth much more and has caught the court's attention.

"Just so the court is aware, Mr. Cruz does not want those funds", McNeill told Judge Elizabeth Scherer during the hearing. "We're making it clear", Finkelstein said. His brother, Zachary Cruz, also attended the hearing and did not speak.

Cruz sat motionless with his head bowed during the brief hearing, which again was held under heavy security with about 20 uniformed Broward Sheriff's Office personnel ringing the courtroom.

According to ABC New his mother, Lynda Cruz, died November 1 after contracting the flu, leaving an Allstate Life Insurance policy in which Nikolas Cruz possibly stands to collect $25,000.

"It's best that they receive it rather than an attorney", he said. The bank account previously had $12,000, but he isn't sure where the remaining money went, he said.

The judge is expected to rule on that by Friday, April 27.

A Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School teacher who was at the Parkland, Fla., school when 17 people were killed in a mass shooting has been arrested after allegedly leaving his gun in a public restroom, the Miami Herald reports.

Police arrested him shortly after the shooting, and Cruz has confessed to being the gunman, court documents show.

Cruz, who is indicted on 17 counts of premeditated murder in the first degree and 17 counts of attempted murder in the first degree, said he wants to give all of the money away.

Cruz faces the death penalty if convicted of the charges against him. His defense team has said Cruz will plead guilty and serve life in prison if it means avoiding an execution.
