WAUKEGAN, Ill. (CBS) — The man charged in the 2022 Highland Park shooting that left seven people dead is expected to reconsider his plea, according to a letter sent to victims and their families.

“It is expected that a change of plea will be presented to Judge Victoria Rossetti at the request of the state and defense,” the letter said.

Crimo was charged with 21 counts of first-degree murder, three counts for each person who died, along with 48 counts of attempted murder and 48 counts of aggravated battery, one for each surviving victim struck by a bullet, bullet fragment or shrapnel .

He previously pleaded not guilty and a trial date was set for February 24, 2025 last winter.
