Michigan School Shooter's Father Guilty of Involuntary Manslaughter

In a Michigan court on Thursday, James Crumbley, the father of a US teen who carried out a deadly school shooting in 2021, was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter. Crumbley and his wife, who was previously found guilty of the same charges, had purchased a 9mm SIG Sauer handgun for their then 15-year-old son, who used it to kill four students at Oxford High School near Detroit.

This case marks the first instance of parents of a school shooter facing felony manslaughter charges in the United States for their child's actions. Prosecutors argued that the Crumbleys ignored warnings about their son's mental health struggles, with Karen McDonald stating that James Crumbley failed to fulfill his legal duty to prevent the tragedy.

Defense attorney Mariell Lehman contended that James Crumbley was unaware of his obligation to protect others from his son's actions and had no knowledge of his son's plans. The jury deliberated for just over a day before returning a guilty verdict for James Crumbley, who could face up to 15 years in prison along with his wife.

Their son, Ethan, who perpetrated the shooting, is serving a life sentence. During her trial, Jennifer Crumbley testified that her husband purchased the gun days before the attack as a gift and stored it at home. She claimed they believed it was solely for use at the shooting range.

The parents were called to the school on the day of the shooting after a teacher discovered a disturbing drawing on Ethan's desk. Despite being advised to seek counseling for their son, they allegedly resisted and allowed him to return to class, where he later carried out the attack.

This case adds to growing pressure to hold parents accountable for enabling their children to access firearms. In a similar vein, the father of an individual involved in a mass shooting in Illinois pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges, while a Virginia woman received prison sentences for her role in her son's shooting of his teacher.
