Caleb Sharpe’s guilty plea in Freeman school shooting: What happens next?

UPDATED: Thu., Jan. 6, 2022

Spokane Superior Court Judge Michael Price will have several big decisions before him later this month when Caleb Sharpe appears to be sentenced. Those decisions could set off a series of appeals, even though Sharpe has admitted guilt in the shooting death of Sam Strahan and attempted murder of other students. The parties did not agree to a term of imprisonment, which means Price could hand down a sentence that could be challenged by Sharpe or prosecutors.
