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

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.
