The same very board that recommended that Mike Huckabee commute the sentence of cop killer Maurice Clemmons is now recommending (unanimously) that Gov. Mike Beebe make convicted drug dealer Billy Welch immediately eligible for parole with a commutation of sentence. Welch, a convicted drug dealing criminal, is serving two life sentences - which one of the board members considers "excessive?" In addition, he has only served 13 years of his two-life sentences (just two more than cop killer Maurice Clemmons). There is some other minor detail about Welch having cancer, but did we mention he was a criminal?
Don't these people read the papers ??? See article here
