Lawyer asks to drop charge against Danville chief

Timberlane student used Parsons' gun

(Continued)

Cronheim said the law should not apply to Parsons because the teen chose to kill himself.

“The Legislature, in choosing this language, declined to have the statute applied to circumstances where a child obtains a firearm and chooses to knowingly or purposely discharge the firearm,” he said.

Cronheim added that the Legislature did not intend to penalize the owner of a firearm in cases where a child fired the weapon without that person’s permission.

Jacob, a Timberlane freshman who wrestled and played football, was the son of Parsons’ girlfriend, Debbie Carver.
