Once again Virginia's Governor Kaine shows his true colors. Seems the laws that were put in place to protect society are flexible when he wants them to be. Three strikes and your out should mean exactly that.(AP) The first woman barred from parole under Virginia's "three-time loser" law is free after 23 years in prison.
Governor Tim Kaine on Tuesday signed a conditional pardon for 49-year-old Ollin Renaye Crawford, saying she had paid her penalty to society. He was the fourth governor to consider her request.
Crawford was then freed from Virginia Correctional Center for Women in Goochland County. She was convicted in 1985 of robbing four Fairfax County banks in an eight-week period using a fake grenade.
Crawford was one of nearly 500 state prison inmates barred from parole consideration under a 1982 law aimed at protecting the public from dangerous repeat criminals convicted of three or more armed robberies, rapes or murders.
Was she not sentenced under federal law? I guess I don't understand pardon powers. Robbing a bank is a federal offense - how can a Governor pardon someone sentenced under federal statutes? Was she only charged under state statutes?
Strange. He's obviously still a dolt thou.
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
When is he going to free the rest of the criminals under the 3 strike law?
I believe in gun control...... Thats why I use TWO hands.
Bank robbery is a federal and state offense. Many times the feds or the state will defer prosecution to the other. If she was prosecuted under state law then Kaine could give a pardon. As far as when he leaves office, next year. I agree it isn't soon enough. He and Wilder are two reasons VA doesn't allow consecutive terms for Gov..
