Michigan School Shooter Sentenced to Life Without Parole for Quadruple Homicide

In a significant ruling on Friday, Ethan Crumbley, the teenager responsible for the tragic school shooting at Oxford High School in Michigan, was sentenced to life imprisonment without parole. Judge Kwamé Rowe of Oakland County handed down the maximum penalty to Crumbley, who was 15 years old at the time of the shooting on November 30, 2021.

Crumbley, now 17, pleaded guilty to the murders of four students: Madisyn Baldwin (17), Tate Myre (16), Hana St. Juliana (14), and Justin Shilling (17). Additionally, he wounded seven others during the rampage. Judge Rowe emphasized the calculated nature of Crumbley’s actions, which he defined as “a true act of terrorism.”

The court heard emotionally charged statements from 31 victims’ family members, profoundly affected by the incident. Rowe highlighted the chilling nature of Shilling’s execution-style murder and St. Juliana’s shooting at close range as particularly egregious.

Despite his lawyers’ request for a sentence that might have offered a chance of release in his 70s, Crumbley received life without parole.
