Disney’s ABC News has released details and a trailer for a new documentary called, ‘Sins of the Parents: The Crumbley Trials’, which chronicles 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.

ABC News Studios was granted rare exclusive access inside the prosecutor’s office over the course of two years as McDonald and her team of attorneys crafted their case. The cameras were rolling for key moments during major hearings and private conversations, even going home with McDonald, capturing contemplative moments as she processed the weight of the case. Interviews will include McDonald, assistant prosecuting attorney Marc Keast and chief assistant prosecutor David Williams.

The film also features interviews with those directly impacted by the Crumbley’s crimes, including Steve St. Juliana and Craig Shilling, fathers who both lost children in the school shooting, and Meghan Gregory, whose son, Keegan, was an Oxford student who survived the shooting. Mariell Lehman, James Crumbley’s defense attorney, is also featured in the documentary.
