    He reduced his sentence to 47 years which meant that the guy was eligible for parole in 11 years.

    The parole board voted 5-0 to grant him parole (he was a nonviolent offender) and the judge in his original trial agreed with the recommendation.

    Eleven years is way above average for what a person who committed a similar crime would serve.

    This thread is nothing more than pointless Mike Huckabee bashing.

    He must have the Democrats really worried for 2012.

    I guess this "fact checking" thing is too tough for some people. The fact that at the time Huck did this the guy hadn't raped anyone doesn't really matter does it? The guy went on later, years later, and did it, so by golley, it must be Hucks fault!! Huck didn't release an over-sentenced burglar, he released a future rapist!! Damn that Huckabee!!!

    Some people on this forum really scare me. Their vote is worth as much as mine at the polls and they don't bother to ensure accuracy of information. They blindly believe. Wow. Scary stuff.

    It was legal but it was far from ethical.

    Face it, the guy should not have been sentenced to a 100 years give or take for crimes that apparently involved no violence or injuries.

    The sentence was excessive. Why else would the trial judge agree with the parole board about letting him out.
    Face it, the guy killed 4 cops and if Huckabee had not commuted his sentence he wouldn't be out now.

    Let me ask you this, Tex. What if Huck would have done whatever it is he did, commuted the sentence or whatever, and this guy go on to run a successful business employing dozens, if not hundreds, of people giving people jobs and chances at life? Who would you have given credit to? This guy, or Huck? If not Huck, then you can't blame Huck if the guy fails.

    The entire premise of this thread begins with a glaring flaw. The governor did not pardon him. Try again.
    Thank you

    I'm pretty sure Huckabee had no idea 9 years ago what this guy would do.

    You don't think the Libbos are going to let facts get in their way, do you?

    Huckabee's magic crystal ball should get all the blame.
