Parker’s defense requests to move case back to juvenile court

MARSHALL COUNTY, KY- Gabriel Parker’s attorney wants his case moved back to juvenile court.

Parker is the 15-year-old student accused in the deadly Marshall County High School shooting on January 23. He was indicted by a grand jury in February, moving him from juvenile court to circuit.

Parker’s public defender Tom griffiths filed a motion Thursday challenging the transfer. He argues there was a failure to conduct a full certification hearing.

We are still reading through this motion. But in short, Griffiths says the process to transfer Parker was rushed and thus, unconstitutional.
