LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Arkansas Parole Board says it has recommended that Governor Beebe grant clemency to a 36-year-old man convicted in a 1996 shooting death on Interstate 30 in Little Rock.
The board said yesterday that its members voted unanimously to recommend making Emanual Lee Hart eligible for parole. Hart is serving a 25-year sentence for first-degree murder and terroristic acts stemming from a shootout on the Sixth Street exit ramp off I-30 that killed 18-year-old Shedrick Sabb, Jr. of Little Rock.
The board recommendations are open for public comment for 30 days. After that, they are forwarded to the Governor for his consideration.
