Potential Parkland Mass Shooting Juror Excused After Telling Judge She’s Too Busy With Her “Sugar Daddy”

The Independent reports:

A possible juror in the Nikolas Cruz sentencing trial left Circuit Judge Elizabeth Scherer baffled after appealing to the needs of her “sugar daddy” to justify skipping out on the trial.

On Monday, a juror who has come to be known as “Ms Bristol”, told the court in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, that she had too many commitments to serve on the Cruz sentencing trial.

Cruz murdered 14 students and three staff members at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on 2018. He pleaded guilty in November, and the case moved onto the sentencing phase. Enter Ms Bristol.

Mediaite reports:

“I need to figure out something. I have my sugar daddy that I see every day,” she said. “I’m sorry?” Broward Circuit Court Judge Elizabeth Scherer said.

“My sugar daddy,” said Bristol. “Okay, I’m not exactly sure what you’re talking about,” said Scherer. “Well, I’m married and I have my sugar daddy,” said Bristol.

“Okay,” said Scherer, appearing puzzled. “I see him every day,” said Bristol. “Alright,” replied Scherer. The excuse worked as the woman was excused.
