CHARDON -- The Chardon Local School District has issued a brief statement following the sentencing of T.J. Lane in a shooting at the high school in 2012.
Here is the text of the written release:
The Chardon Local School District is relieved that the case State vs. Lane has finally concluded, which allows all of us (the victims' families, our students, staff and greater community) to move on from the tragic events of February 27, 2012. Our thoughts and prayer remain with the victims and their families as we all take another stride towards healing.
A judge sentenced Lane, 18, on Tuesday to three life in prison without parole terms for the aggravated murders of three students and the wounding of three other students.
A spokesman at the Geauga County Sheriff's Office says Lane has been moved from that facility to the Lorain Correctional Institution.
Lane showed contempt for the victims' families at sentencing making a profanity laced statement and flipping his middle finger. He wore a T-shirt with the word "killer" handwritten on it during the hearing.
