Arkansas: Recommendation

The Arkansas Parole Board has unanimously recommended parole for a 54-year-old Sampson Ellis who was convicted for rape and imprisoned in 1976. In his clemency application, Ellis claims that he is innocent and in prison because of his "ignorance of not knowing the law" and how to defend himself. It is also reported that the Board's recommendation noted Ellis "was in the prison’s Men’s Fraternity, participated in the Character First program, worked as a pre-release counselor and had completed his GED."
