Michigan Mass Shooter Ethan Crumbley Who Killed 4 Classmates Pleads Guilty To Terrorism Charges

Michigan mass shooter Ethan Crumbley pleaded guilty Monday to a slew of murder and terrorism charges for slaughtering four classmates at his Detroit area high school when he was just 15.

The disturbed teen, now 16, pleaded guilty to a total of 24 charges over the carnage nearly a year ago at Oxford High School that also wounded six other pupils and a teacher.

He withdrew his intent to pursue an insanity defense, instead admitting the first-degree murders of classmates Madisyn Baldwin, Tate Myre, Hana St. Juliana and Justin Shilling last Nov. 30.

Asked by Judge Kwame Rowe if he “knowingly, willfully and deliberately” chose to shoot other students, the teen nodded and replied: “Yes.” “I accept the plea,” replied the judge as some relatives of the young victims wept in the gallery at Oakland County Circuit Court.

The prosecutor’s office stressed that no deals were made ahead of Monday’s plea on the charges that included terrorism causing death and 12 counts of possessing a firearm in the commission of a felony.

Each of the first-degree murder charges he admitted would typically bring an automatic life prison sentence in Michigan.

However, teenagers are entitled to a hearing at which their lawyer can argue for a shorter term and an opportunity for parole. Prosecutors have yet to signal if they will fight for life without parole.
