Attorney General denounces clemency

June 6, 2013

On Thursday, Attorney General Scott Pruitt denounced clemency for a convicted rapist and murderer.
“This convicted murderer lured his estranged girlfriend’s mother to his apartment and then brutally raped her, broke her jaw, stabbed her six times, puncturing her abdomen, and left her for dead while he drove off in her van. He does not deserve our pity or clemency, and it is incomprehensible that four members of the pardon and parole board would usurp the judgment of a jury and deny this family justice,” Attorney General Scott Pruitt said.
