Huckabee Announces Intentions to Free Convicted Murderers

JULY 7, 2004 - Posted at 7:38 a.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Two state prison inmates serving life sentences for murder could be freed if Governor Huckabee follows through on plans to commute their sentences.

Huckabee's notice yesterday said he intends to commute the sentence of Dennis Lewis' life without parole on a 1975 capital murder conviction to time served, contingent upon successful completion of a pre-release program.

The governor's commutation of Glen M. Green's life sentence on a 1975 first-degree murder conviction to 181 years, ten months and 19 days would make Green eligible for parole on August 6.

Lewis was convicted in Washington County and Green in Lonoke County.  Huckabee's notice said judicial and law enforcement officials in both jurisdictions had raised no objections to the inmate's clemency requests.
