The Case of Janet Danahey

WFMY News has an interesting story on the case of Janet Danahey. It begins ten years ago, when 23-old Janet Danahey pulled a Valentine's Day"prank" that ended with an apartment building burning to the ground and the deaths of four people. Danahey confessed to her role int the fire and was given a life sentence without the possibility of parole.

Now two Greensboro attorneys have filed a clemency petition on behalf of Janet Danahey. They are asking for a commutation of sentence to a specific number of years which, in turn, will make Danahey eligible for parole at some point in time. It is said that they have been "planning to request clemency for three years." See story here.
