A Los Angeles man accused of involuntary manslaughter in connection with the shooting death of Adam Scott, son of Pasadena City College President Jack Scott, has been ordered back to court for a March 22 hearing to set a trial date.
Ethan David DuBrow, 26, has pleaded innocent to the charge. The stepson of Hollywood director John McTiernan, DuBrow has been free on $25,000 bail since a few days after the Oct. 23, 1993, shooting, said Deputy Dist. Atty. Patrick Dixon.
If convicted, DuBrow faces six years in prison, Dixon said.
A pretrial hearing for DuBrow was scheduled for Feb. 22. But his attorney, Robert L. Shapiro, was unable to break from the O.J. Simpson murder trial to attend, Dixon said.
On the morning of the incident, DuBrow was reportedly showing off a new 12-gauge rifle to Scott, 27, and other friends during a party at DuBrow’s Park La Brea home. DuBrow told authorities that he believed the gun was not loaded.
