Click here to listen to Herman’s attorney Bob Boyle speak March 3rd on WCNY about Herman and parole reform in NY state.
Herman Bell has been to the New York state parole board six times and has been denied each time. His next parole board appearance will be in March, 2016. Each time, the board – always made of up former law enforcement personnel and former prosecutors — reviews his very impressive record, the Bachelor’s and Master’s college degrees he has attained since being locked up, his job offers, his numerous letters of support from family, friends, and community members from many walks of life. They have before them evidence of all the ways Herman has helped so many people throughout the course of his confinement and is still leading a positive and progressive life despite being locked up now over four decades.
