Montana: Beach Granted Clemency !

NBC News reports Barry Beach has "walked out of the Montana State Prison a free man a little after noon MST today." Montana Governor Steve Bullock granted clemency after Beach had served more than 32 years in prison for a 1979 murder. He has long maintained his innocence but was turned down by Montana's Board of Pardons and Paroles last year. The state legislature then passed a law allowing the Governor to pardon even if the Board denies an application. See story here.

See our own previous coverage of his somewhat bizarre case here.
