The State of Maine v. Parole
Vol 68, no. 11
Article presenting the history of parole in Maine, which was abolished in 1975, along with viewpoints from those for and against parole. The essay discusses Brandon Brown, who earned a master’s degree from George Mason University in 2020 while still incarcerated for attempted murder and elevated aggravated assault. His request for clemency was denied by Governor Janet Mills, leading State Representative Jeffrey Evangelos to introduce “An Act to Reestablish Parole”. The viewpoints of Arthur Jette, Maine chapter leader of Parents of Murdered Children, and Francine Garland Stark, executive director of the Maine Coalition to End Domestic Violence are also presented.
