Martin Lee Anderson Trial Date Set

By  | 

A trial date is set in a case that could cost the state millions.

The family of a teenager who died at a Bay County Boot Camp is suing.

Fourteen-year-old Martin Lee Anderson died after a violent struggle with guards at the juvenile facility.

The original coroner blamed the death on the teen’s Sickle Cell trait, but a second autopsy pointed to the guards who put ammonia tablets into the boy's nose, suffocating him.

Trial is set for April 16 in Tallahassee. The family wants $40 million.
