Attorneys for the Oxford High School gunman are attempting to get the option of life in pr!son without the possibility of parole removed from the table.
Ethan Crumbley’s counsel requests a pr!son sentence with a set end date and a hearing to determine whether he is “irreparably corrupt.”
On November 30, 2021, four students were ki!!ed: Madisyn Baldwin, 17, Justin Shilling, 16, Tate Myre, and 14-year-old Hana St. Juliana. Six additional pupils and one teacher were also hurt.
Crumbley was 15 years old at the time of the sh00ting. Prosecutors argue that the valid question is whether life in pr!son without the possibility of release should be an option when a juvenile commits a crime.
Crumbley pleaded guilty to four counts of first-degree m*rder, seven counts of attempted m*rder, and multiple weapons offenses. M*rder charges typically carry a mandatory life sentence without the possibility of release.

However, the United States Supreme Court declared in 2012 that mandatory life terms without the possibility of parole for minor offenders constitute cruel and unusual punishment. As a result, the court must decide if that is an appropriate sentencing.
Crumbley’s sentencing hearing in Oakland County Circuit Court will begin on July 27.
