Santana High School Shooter Could Be Paroled Next Year
Twenty-three years ago, 14-year-old Charles “Andy” Williams gunned down fellow students and staff at Santana High School, killing two and injuring 13. Now, at age 37, he is almost up for parole.
CBS 8 spoke to some of Williams’ victims about his upcoming hearing in March. Many of them were shocked to learn he could possibly get out of jail.
Under a law signed by Gov. Jerry Brown in 2013, anyone convicted of a crime when they were 25 or younger is eligible for a parole hearing at or before their 25th year of incarceration.
CBS 8 also spoke to Williams about the horrific acts he committed that day and what led up to the massacre.
