Troubled prison start for Ohio school shooter

 

CLEVELAND (AP) — The teen serving life in prison for killing three students in a school shooting rampage in northeast Ohio apparently has struggled with cellblock living.

Nineteen-year-old T.J. Lane of Chardon is locked up in the state prison in Lima in northwest Ohio.

According to The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer (bit.ly/17D6jkq), he was given 10 days in segregation in July for giving himself a tattoo. And he was disciplined twice for refusing cellblock assignments.

Lane pleaded guilty in the Feb. 27, 2012, shooting attack at Chardon High School.

At his sentencing in March, Lane wore a T-shirt with "killer" scrawled across it and gestured obscenely as he was given three life sentences.

He has appealed his sentence.
