    You mean crimes, as in plural. This guy had 5 felony convictions for a total of 108 years.

    He's a repeat offender and Arkansas' three-strikes law kicked in.

    Maurice Clemmons' record UPDATE

    To clarify matters, here's what state Correction Department spokesman Dina Tyler says the state record shows for a criminal past for Maurice Clemmons (shown in LRPD mugshot), who's being sought for questioning in the slaying of four Washington police officers. (UPDATE on earlier: Clemmons turned out not to be inside a house that officers had surrounded most of the night.)

    * Sentenced to 5 years for robbery in Pulaski County, Aug. 3, 1989.

    * Sentenced to 8 years for burglary, theft and probation revocation in Pulaski County, Sept. 9, 1989

    * Sentenced to an indeterminate amount for aggravated robbery and theft in Pulaski County, Nov. 15, 1989

    * Sentenced to 20 years each for burglary and theft of property in Pulaski County, Feb. 23, 1990.

    * Sentenced to 6 years for firearm possession in Pulaski County, Nov. 19, 1990.

    Tyler said some sentences were concurrent and some consecutive. But the total effect of all these sentences was a sentence of 108 years.

    On May 3, 2000, Gov. Mike Huckabee commuted Clemmons' sentence to 47 years, 5 months and 19 days, which made him eligible for parole that day. The Parole Board granted his parole July 13, 2000. He was released Aug. 1, 2000.

    Clemmons then returned to prison for a July 13, 2001 conviction for robbery in Ouachita County, for which he received a 10-year sentence. He was paroled March 18, 2004.

    Tyler said Clemmons wouldn't fully discharge his paroled sentence until Sept. 19, 2021.

    Huckabee made a mistake when he commuted the sentence in 2000. However, when he was paroled in 2001 and then AGAIN was convicted of robery, the real culprits are those that paroled him in 2004. He should have not been given parole a second time given that he was a repeat offender of the same crime he was paroled for the first time.

    I disagree. I believe our system takes the lion's share of the blame. Prison as punishment is a relatively new phenomenon, along with the notion of rehabilitation in prison. If someone commits a crime resulting in a sentence of 1.5 X his life span, why should he NOT receive the death penalty within the next month?
    A basic assumption of the justice and penal system is that ANYONE not given a death sentence will eventually be released.

    No prison system wants to hang on to a bunch of 80 year old inmates sentenced to life 60 years ago.

    I've never defended Clemmons.

    All I've said was that Huckabee did nothing wrong in commuting his sentence based on the information he had at the time.

    I just find it odd, your position, and your claimed political views.

    I'm supposed to favor releasing habitual criminals so they can continue to terrorize society?
