District Attorney Cathy Stocker will be combating quite a few requests at this month’s meeting of the state Pardon and Parole Board. In fact, she is protesting 28 of the 29 requests on the docket that are from her district. Among those who will meet with Stocker's opposition are a man convicted of robbery with a dangerous weapon (and serving 500 years) and a man convicted of DUI (who is serving a five-year sentence). Another is serving a 25-year sentence for possessing a stolen motor vehicle. "Robbery by force or fear" netted a 20-year sentence with 12 suspended for another fellow. Twelve of the requests are for drug-related charges. See story here.
