Former school deputy draws big Fla. pen­sion

Richmond Times-Dispatch - - WEATHER DESK -

FORT LAUD­ERDALE, Fla. — A sher­iff’s deputy who failed to con­front a gun­man dur­ing a Feb. 14 school mas­sacre is re­ceiv­ing a monthly state pen­sion of $8,702.35.

The Sun Sen­tinel re­ports Scot Peter­son, who re­signed and re­tired af­ter the shoot­ings, be­gan re­ceiv­ing pay­ments in April.

Video showed Peter­son out­side Mar­jory Stone­man Dou­glas High School as the gun­man killed 17 peo­ple. Broward County Sher­iff Scott Is­rael said Peter­son should have gone in­side.

Pen­sion pay­ments are based on the 32 years he worked and the av­er­age of his five high­est-paid fis­cal years.
