ABC News Studios has announced "Sins of the Parents: The Crumbley Trials," a new documentary chronicling the trials of James and Jennifer Crumbley, the parents of convicted mass shooter Ethan Crumbley, who opened fire at his school, Oxford High School in Michigan, on November 30, 2021, leaving four students — Madisyn Baldwin, Tate Myre, Justin Shilling and Hana St. Juliana — dead and seven individuals wounded. Michigan's Oakland County prosecutor Karen McDonald took the historic step of charging each of Crumbley's parents with four counts of involuntary manslaughter for failing to try to prevent the attack. This timely film follows the more than two-year journey of the unprecedented case, from charges to conviction and culminating in sentencing on April 9, 2024. The hour-long program will delve into the impact the shooting had on the Oxford community and examine a novel approach toward legal accountability that some experts say could prevent future gun violence. "Sins of the Parents: The Crumbley Trials" begins streaming on Thursday, April 18, only on Hulu.
