ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.- A grand jury has indicted Nicholas Lindsey, the 16-year old accused of fatally shooting St. Petersburg Police officer David S. Crawford.
The grand jury issued the indictment Monday. As a result, Lindsey will be tried in adult court on a charge of first-degree murder. He was being transported from the Pinellas County Juvenile Detention Center to the Pinellas County Jail.
Because of his age, Lindsey won't face the death penalty. If convicted on first-degree murder charges, he could be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Crawford was shot and killed Feb. 21.
