Ethan Crumbley's Parents Get 10-15 Years in Prison After Convictions

The Crumbley case has set a major precedent that will have a lasting impact on parental responsibility for their children's actions. Defense attorney Mark Eiglarsh believes that this case will serve as a reminder to parents that they need to be aware of their children's behavior and take steps to prevent tragedies like this from happening again.

After being convicted of manslaughter, Ethan Crumbley's parents, James and Jennifer Crumbley, have been sentenced to more than a decade in prison. The judge handed down 10-to-15-year prison terms to each of them, the maximum sentence they were facing. This case is historic as it marks the first time parents have been found criminally liable for their child's actions. Prosecutors argued that the parents could have prevented the shooting, and the judge agreed, imposing stiff sentences due to their lack of remorse and failure to prevent the tragedy. Ethan, who was sentenced to life in prison without parole, carried out the shooting at just 15 years old.
