James and Jennifer Crumbley, the parents of Ethan Crumbley, the teenager responsible for a deadly shooting at Oxford High School in 2021, have been sentenced to 10 to 15 years in prison for their roles in the tragic incident. This sentencing marks a historic moment, as it is the first time parents have been found criminally liable for their child’s behavior in such a case.

The Crumbleys were convicted of involuntary manslaughter, with each count corresponding to one of the students killed during the shooting. Prosecutors argued that the parents could have taken actions to prevent the tragedy, given the clear warning signs exhibited by their son.

During the trial, Jennifer testified that James was responsible for hiding the gun that Ethan ultimately used. However, the jury held both parents equally responsible for the deaths. Prosecutors pushed for stiff sentences, emphasizing the lack of remorse shown by James and Jennifer.

The Crumbleys, on the other hand, requested supervised release and asked to be placed on house arrest. They argued that they had already served more than enough time for the crime they were convicted of. However, the judge’s decision did not favor their request.

As for Ethan himself, he has already been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. At the time of the shooting, he was only 15 years old, and he is now approaching 18 years old. His parents have been incarcerated for the past 2 years as their cases unfolded.
