Judge sets bond for Beech Grove father of boy seen waving loaded gun

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A judge gave Shane Osborne a $60,000 bond during his first court appearance Thursday.

He’s charged with three felonies because his unsupervised 4-year-old son was caught on camera waving a loaded pistol around in the hallway of Osborne’s Beech Grove apartment building.

Osborne’s mom was at the courthouse Thursday and was combative with members of the press.

She gave I-Team 8 the middle finger while walking into and out of the courtroom.

The judge in the case granted the prosecution’s motion for a stay-away order. It requires Osborne to have no contact with his son’s mother, neighbors who talked to Beech Grove police during the investigation, and Osborne’s mother.

In court, Osborne said, “I don’t understand why I can’t contact my mother. She’s the only person I have in the world.”

Osborne is facing two to 11 years in prison if he’s convicted of all three felonies. He was appointed a public defender when he told the judge he didn’t have any money in savings.

His trial is scheduled for March 20.
