Latimer on Day Parole
Last December, I wrote about Tracy Latimer, a 12 year old girl with cerebral palsy. Tracy's father, Robert Latimer was convicted in her death. Mr. Latimer appealed a recent decision by the parole board allowing him no parole. That appeal has resulted in Mr. Latimer being allowed day parole. He has served 7 years - 7 years for murdering his daughter. Here is a link to the story about his parole appeal and the decision:

And, oh yea, as part of the parole decision, he cannot have responsiblity for anyone who is severely disabled. I feel much better about all this now (she said, sarcastically).
