The transfer of convicted murderer John J. Sullivan from the Maine State Prison
The transfer of convicted murderer John J. Sullivan from the Maine State Prison in Thomaston to a New Hampshire prison has prompted complaints of injustice from a prison advocacy group, causing the widow of one of Sullivan's victims to question the sympathy afforded the murderer. Sullivan was sentenced to life in prison in New Hampshire, but was transferred to Maine to be closer to his ailing mother. He was transferred back to New Hampshire last week against his will, apparently because of a column he wrote for the Maine Times. Details.
