PONTIAC, Mich. (Michigan News Source) – Attorneys who are appealing the life sentence for the Oxford High School shooter have filed a motion asking the court to consider the shooter’s family and home life, information they say was not a consideration in the initial sentencing.

Ethan Crumbley killed four classmates and injured seven other people in November 2021. He was 15 at the time of the shooting but is now a legal adult and was transferred from a juvenile facility to the Thumb Correctional Facility last month. He pleaded guilty in December 2023 and is serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole.

Also last month, the shooter’s parents were both sentenced to 10 to 15 years in prison on four counts of involuntary manslaughter. The juries in those separate cases found James and Jennifer Crumbley negligent in the shooting. jurors agreed with prosecutors that the Crumbleys ignored the warning signs of mental illness from their son and purchased the gun for him that he used in the shooting.
