Jennifer Crumbley testifying in Oakland County

In what appears to be an unusual request, Jennifer Crumbley, mother of Oxford High School mass shooter Ethan Crumbley, wants to live with her lawyer on house arrest in a guest house in Oakland County in lieu of prison, the Detroit Free Press reports.

But Assistant Oakland County Prosecutor Marc Keast in a sentencing memorandum calls such a request a "slap in the face" to the victims and their families. He is urging the judge to sentence both Jennifer Crumbley and her husband James to 10 to 15 years in prison. Both are scheduled to be sentenced Tuesday. 

Both were convicted in separate trials on four counts of involuntary manslaughter relating to four students their son murdered on Nov. 30, 2021. During the rampage, seven others were wounded including a teacher.

The couple was charged and jailed shortly after the shooting after they went on the run. They have already served nearly 2 1/2 year behind bars. 

The sentencing memorandum discloses Jennifer Crumbley's wishes to avoid prison, reports  Tresa Baldas of the Detroit Free Press, who writes:

In calling for a stiff punishment for James Crumbley, Keast also cited multiple threats that James Crumbley allegedly made toward Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald in a jail phone conversation, including calling her a "f------ bitch," and saying, "Your ass is going down and you better be f------ scared.”
