The historic convictions of of Jennifer and James Crumbley, the parents of mass shooter Ethan Crumbly, has caught the world's attention.

With that in mind, ABC News Studios announced Friday a documentary, “Sins of the Parents: The Crumbley Trials,” which  chronicles the trials of the parents.

The documentary begins streaming Thursday, April 18, on Hulu.

The Crumbleys are the first parents to ever be charged and convicted in a school shooting. Both were sentenced last week to 10-15 years in prison. They son Ethan Crumbley, 17, is serving a life sentence without parole for the 2021 shooting at Oxford High School in northern Oakland County that left four dead and seven wounded, including a teacher. 

An ABC press release says:

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.
