Mother of Michigan School Shooter Convicted of Four Counts of Involuntary Manslaughter

In Michigan, a jury has convicted Jennifer Crumbley of four counts of involuntary manslaughter for a deadly school shooting carried out by her 15-year-old son at Oxford High School in 2021. Prosecutors argued Crumbley had a duty to prevent her son from going on the rampage, which killed four students in what was Michigan’s deadliest school shooting. This is Marc Keast, assistant prosecuting attorney in Oakland County, speaking during the trial. Marc Keast: “Jennifer Crumbley didn’t pull the trigger that day, but she is responsible for those deaths. These kids were gunned down inside Oxford High School with this gun. It’s a Sig Sauer, nine millimeter handgun purchased four days before the shooting by James Crumbley, Jennifer’s husband and father to the school shooter. This was a purchase celebrated by Jennifer on Instagram. These are her words. This is her post: 'Mom & son day testing out his new Xmas present. My first time shooting a 9mm I hit the bullseye.'”
