Crumbley Trial

The Crumbley Trial May Go On

Four counts of involuntary murder in Ethan Crumbley’s death are being brought against his parents. The charges stem from his shooting of three people. While the trial continues, the parents are currently in jail. The Crumbleys are accused in the shooting incident of giving their son easy access to a gun and not being able to recognize signs that their son is in distress. Although the parents were initially arraigned in December, they did not appear.

As the case has evolved, the defendants’ lawyers have acknowledged that the trial may go ahead despite the lack of a plea deal. The defense is currently examining voluminous evidence and has requested a delay in the trial’s start. A new trial date has been set for Jan. 17, 2023. This was previously scheduled for September of this year. Both sides say this is a good timing for the trial. However, a trial date must be determined by the judge.

The court has set a new date in the Crumbley trial. The trial will resume on Jan. 17. Crumbley’s attorneys have indicated that they will use the insanity defense in Crumbley’s case. But before they can discuss the verdict, they should consider the trial’s implications. Insanity defense is the most plausible defense against the charges. A trial can also be used to ensure that the accused are not punished without a trial.

The case against Ethan Crumbley is currently being delayed for four months. The defense team of the Oakland County teen convinced the judge to postpone the trial. The trial will now begin in January, instead of September. Although the trial was originally scheduled to begin in September, the judge has ordered that all evidence be released by the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office. The evidence includes surveillance video, a bloodstain test, DNA samples, and other evidence.

Ethan Crumbley’s case has often been overlooked by the murder charges against his child. The defense cited a 1961 Michigan case in which a young man was charged with involuntary murder for the death of a car driver. The Michigan Supreme Court, however, reversed the conviction and has shifted the case to terrorism. This is especially unfortunate as parents of mass shooters rarely face criminal charges.

The prosecution is attempting to prove that the parents were grossly negligent in allowing their son harm by giving him a weapon. The defense is arguing that the parents acted responsibly and were aware of their son’s mental health. However, the prosecutor has also argued that the parents allowed their son to play violent video games that fueled his homicidal thoughts. Although the trial will continue, the parents’ arguments have been rejected.

Judge Cheryl Matthews denied a defense request to move the trial to another location. Oakland County is not a small town, but prosecutors can still find juries outside the town of Oxford. As a result, if the trial is held in a larger courtroom, the prosecution can still get a jury. However, the prosecution is prohibited from discussing the trial in the media. In the meantime, the public may hear statements from Crumbley’s journal or from text messages.
