Governor Mike Huckabee did not release either Wayne Dumond or Clemmons.
Both were recommended for parole.
And both had served longer sentences than the average people convicted of the same crimes.
Especially in the case of Clemmons who was sentenced to 60 years for a burglary committed at the age of 16.
The idea that Huckabee was soft on criminalls is a fiction put out by political opponents.
He signed off on more death sentences than any other recent Arkansas governor.
Including three in one day.
