ArkansasNews.com reports that the State's Parole Board has unanimously recommended parole be granted to a James Weaver Jr., 44, who was convicted of capital murder twenty years ago. Weaver's original sentence was "life without parole." The Board recommends that the sentence be commuted to "time already served." A County Prosecuting Attorney and County Sheriff objected to Weaver’s application for clemency without explanation. See story here.
