So after months of waiting, and hoping he doesn’t get it, I have finally got an update on the parole hearing Kemper was to have this year and guess what? No parole hearing is to be had after all.
I must have trawled the web for at least 3 days looking for news and updates when I finally came across a little known blogger who actually did a bit of leg work to find out what was potting. It turns out that in February this year Kemper decided to have his rights waived for the parole hearing which was due on the 25th July 2012.
If you remember rightly, back in 2007 his parole was denied due to the severity of his crimes. The defense argued that he should be granted parole because he has been a “model prisoner”. Sorry mate – not good enough!
So in closing we can all sleep a little easier knowing that one of America’s most prolific serial killers is not up for parole this year.
