From March 19 to March 20, 2013, in Springville, New York,dylan schumaker , then 16, watched Ashlee Smith’s two young boys while she worked at a restaurant. At the end of the night, one of the boys was dead, and Schumaker was charged with murder. He killed his older son Austin, who was almost two years old, by beating him to death.

Schumaker was found guilty of second-degree murder and cried as the judge told him that he loved Austin and didn’t mean to kill him. But State Supreme Court Justice M. William Boller called him a “manipulator and deceiver” for trying to sway the jury with tears, and he gave him a 25-year to life term in prison for the death of the toddler.

dylan schumaker is currently spending his time in New York’s Clinton Correctional Facility. He will be able to get out of jail on parole in 2031.

The Court of Appeals shortened dylan schumaker prison term to 18 years to life in February 2016. He will be able to get parole in 2031, when he has served his 18 years. He will, however, still be supervised by the state after he gets out.

Schumaker, who is now 26 years old, has been in prison since 2014 and has served 9 years of his uncertain sentence. He is currently in the Clinton Correctional Facility in New York, where he is spending the rest of his sentence.
