MIAMI (AP) — Prosecutors say the Florida deputy who failed to confront a gunman during last year's Parkland massacre has been arrested on 11 charges.

State Attorney Mike Satz announced Tuesday that 56-year-old Scot Peterson faces child neglect, culpable negligence and perjury charges. Peterson, then a Broward County deputy, was on duty during the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School but never went inside.

Satz says the charges carry a combined prison sentence of nearly 100 years. Peterson's bail was set at $102,000.

A Peterson lawyer didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

Twenty-year-old Nikolas Cruz faces the death penalty if convicted of killing 17 people and wounding 17 others in the attack. He has offered to plead not guilty in return for a life sentence, but prosecutors have refused that offer.

Police said 18-year-old Jovani Cruz, of the Edgewater neighborhood, posted the threats against Lake View High School on social media early on June 5. Cruz was arrested later that day. On Tuesday, police said Cruz had been charged with one misdemeanor count of electronic harassment threatening two or more people. Court information was not immediately available.
