Douglas Crawford is representing Michael Logan, who has been charged in connection with the shooting death of his 2-year-old son. Douglas Crawford plans to argue for probation, though the prosecuting attorneys are seeking jail time.
Mr. Logan was asleep when a 10-year-old boy fired a shot from a 9 mm handgun inside Logan’s northeast valley home that left Messiah Logan dead. He also immediately tried to render aid after he heard the gunshot. Mr. Crawford accused investigators of distorting statements from witnesses who said Logan brought the gun into his home.
“He’s been punished enough,” Crawford said. “He lost his boy.”
Michael Logan reached a deal with prosecutors on two counts: child abuse and ownership of a gun by a prohibited person.
Logan, 26, is expected to enter his pleas in Clark County District Court next month and could face up to six years behind bars.
