Michigan prosecutor says she can also charge parents of Oxford high school shooter

A Michigan prosecutor charge a 15 year old Oxford High School sophomore charged with terrorism, first-degree murder, assault and gun possession Wednesday and said she would try him as an adult for killing four classmates and wounding others. another on Tuesday. “There’s a mountain of digital evidence” pre-planned mass shootings, Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald said at a press conference. “It’s not even a close call.”

McDonald said prosecutors will consider additional charges against the alleged gunman, Ethan Crumbley, and also his parents. Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard on Tuesday said the defendant used a 9mm Sig Sauger pistol his father had purchased four days earlier, on Black Friday. “We know that owning a gun means having it properly secured and locked, keeping ammunition separate and not allowing access to it by other individuals, especially minors.” McDonald said. “We have to hold the individuals responsible for not doing it.”

Bouchard said Wednesday he supports McDonald’s fees and decided to try Crumbley as an adult, but is not subjective about charging his parents. “It is unclear under what statutes that Crumbley’s parents will be charged, if they are,” washington articles report. “Michigan law does not require gun owners to lock their weapons or keep them away from children, according to the Giffords Law Center.”

“We don’t have a book-specific law about that, like in other states,” Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel told Detroit Free Press on Wednesday. “Theoretically, if you have a case of a teenager exhibiting instability, thinking or acting mentally or committing suicide or murder or whatever to that extent, and in addition, you still allow this child to have unregulated access to firearms, in theory, I don’t think it would be too much of a stretch to accuse a parent of involuntary manslaughter in schools that’s the case.”

Out of the four cases NS Post find, between 1999 and 2018 in which an adult gun owner was criminally punished for not locking their gun, a Michigan man was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to 29 months in prison prison. “Adult gun owners are almost never liable when children use their weapons to harm themselves or others,” NS Post report. “That’s despite the fact that if children under the age of 6 didn’t have access to a gun, more than half of the country’s school shootings since 1999 would never have happened.”
