The Alabama State Pardon & Parole Board convened in Montgomery yesterday, and took up the case of convicted murderer William Everett Clark. Clark was convicted in the 1995 murder of 17 year-old Kenneth Dewayne Martin of Dothan, and has served just eight years out of his thirteen year sentence. There will be no parole for Clark, as the decision was handed down by the Parole Board yesterday...an emotional day for both Clark`s loved ones who plead for his release, and for the family of victim Keneth Dewayne Martin who Clark gunned down back in 1995, after Martin pumped gas without enough money to pay. Not a good enough reason to take comeone`s life says Martin`s dad, Kenneth Garlington, who says, "it hurt our family really bad, and I`m glad that the Parole Board sees that he hasn`t done enough time to be out in the public, and that five years more won`t be enough time to bring my son back." During the hearing, Andrew Skier, Attorney for the Clark family, told the board that Clark is a model citizen, who has been granted work release and home visitation priviledges for the past four or five years...a confession that didn`t set well with Attorney General Representtive Anita Stringfellow, or District Attorney Doug Valeska. Valeska said, "I`m shocked to find out that he`s been out on a work release, and getting passes to go home...that`s a discase to the Judicial System,... that you can kill someone and get passes to go home. Kenneth didn`t get any passes...it`s rediculous....the law needs to be changed." Clark`s case will come up again for parole in November of 2008.
