Mother shows act of forgiveness, hugs daughter’s killer in court

MIAMI — A mother showed the ultimate act of forgiveness in a Miami courtroom, hugging her daughter’s killer 18 months after the tragedy, according to WPLG.

The woman’s 13-year-old daughter was killed on a school bus when a 17-year-old boy was showing off a gun. The gun accidentally went off, striking the teenage girl.

The mother, in a show of compassion, orchestrated a plea deal that allows the 17-year-old to spend a year in a juvenile detention center and then spend time speaking on the dangers of guns. He could have faced years in prison.
