Branstad approves commutation request

(Continued)

Des Moines —

·        Safe community: Mr. Williams should be released into a community that will help encourage his success.

·        Lifetime sentence: Mr. Williams should serve out his life sentence under the supervision of both the Board of Parole and the Department of Corrections.  Supervision and contact with the Board of Parole and the Department of Corrections will ensure Mr. Williams a successful rehabilitation.

·        Other supervision: Mr. Williams shall obey any other type of parole supervision that would be in the best interest of public safety.

I expect for Mr. Williams to positively contribute to society if he is released for work-release or parole.  Please note this decision in your records and notify the registered victims.

Sincerely,

Terry E. Branstad

Governor
