Peltier's Attorneys Argue for Parole Hearing

September 20, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

Attorneys for jailed American Indian activist Leonard Peltier told a federal appeals court in Denver that the government is denying him a parole hearing on the unproven claim that he ambushed two FBI agents before gunning them down 28 years ago.

Peltier, 59, will have been in prison twice as long as required by federal guidelines if no hearing is held until 2008 as decreed by the U.S. Parole Commission, attorney Barry Bachrach said. The judges took the case under advisement.
