MIAMI, Florida– A mother shows an incredible act of forgiveness when she hugs her daughter’s killer in court.
The move stunned people in the courtroom.
Local 10 News reports the woman’s 13-year-old daughter was killed when the 17-year-old was showing off a gun on the school bus; it went off, striking the teenage girl.
As part of a plea deal that the mother orchestrated, the teen will spend a year in juvenile detention and then spend time talking about the dangers of guns.
He could have spent years in prison.
