James Crumbley, the dad of the teenager who caused harm at a Michigan high school in 2021, has been found responsible for involuntary manslaughter. This happened after the mom of the teenager was also found responsible for the same thing.

Crumbley was found responsible for four counts of involuntary manslaughter, which can mean up to 15 years in jail.

The jury made their decision more than two years after his son, Ethan Crumbley, who was 15 at the time, used a gun to harm students and teachers at Oxford High School.

James Crumbley will be sentenced on April 9th at 9 a.m., along with his wife.

After the decision, James Crumbley was taken away from the courtroom. Families of the victims were crying as they heard the decision.

Parents of those who were harmed hugged the main prosecutor after the decision.

The prosecution said that James Crumbley was careless because he got the gun for his son and didn’t secure it well. They said he ignored his son’s mental health problems.

The defense said there wasn’t enough proof that James knew his son was dangerous.

The prosecutor said James’s lack of action led to the deaths of the students.

This case is testing who is responsible for a shooting. Prosecutors say the parents are responsible because they got their son a gun and ignored signs of his mental health getting worse.

Ethan, the son, was already sentenced to life in prison for what he did.

Parents of the victims spoke out about the tragedy and called for change.

James Crumbley’s trial focused on how he got the gun and stored it. The defense argued he didn’t know what his son was planning.

The parents were called to school because of concerning things their son wrote, but they didn’t take him out of school that day. The shooting happened later.

Prosecutors said the parents could have prevented it if they had taken their son out of school or mentioned they had got him a gun.

The defense said James didn’t know what his son was going to do and didn’t think there was an immediate danger.
