Learn More about Parole for Life-Term Prisoners in California . . .

CCWP wants to help change the parole system for life-term prisoners. We will post more updates and information as the work develops. In the meantime, we encourage everyone to listen to this audio program to learn more . . . .

"In California, Maryland and Oklahoma, the governors can overrule parole boards' decisions to free prisoners serving life sentences. In all three states this has evolved to the point where very few prisoners get released. For years Nancy Mullane followed the case of Don Cronk in San Quentin Prison, to see what would happen as Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger reviewed his case. Though Cronk knew the odds were against him, he found it hard to stop himself from believing he'd get out." - This American Life website.

The program is "This American Life," and the parole portion of the show begins around minute 8. Please click this link , and then click "Stream Episode." Thank you, and please let us know if you want to get involved!
