The state’s Pardon and Parole Board has recommended clemency for Jimmy Franklin and William Geddes. Franklin received 200- and 300- year sentences for shooting (and injuring) another man with a shotgun and for attempting to shot another. He was paroled after 17 years. Geddes served three years of a ten-year sentence for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. District Attorney Cathy Stocker says she will oppose the release of both men. See story here.
