After a meeting with the chairman of the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole, the brother of Ellen Gregory-Robb says hes optimistic that his sisters killer will not go free next Monday as planned.
The board has decided to release Rafael Robb after having served only half of his 5-to-10 year manslaughter sentence. Robb pled guilty to bludgeoning his wife Ellen to death in their Upper Merion home. Ellen Robbs brother, Gary Gregory, said the meeting he and his brother had with the chairman of the Board of Probation and Parole Tuesday was mostly to discuss process, but that hes confident that the board now has additional information that makes the case for a revocation of Rafael Robbs parole.
The parole board is now firmly and fully equipped to review this, do the right thing, and keep Rafael Robb behind bars, Gregory says.
Included in that new information is a letter from the judge who presided over Robbs trial. Calling Rafael Robb a highly manipulative man, the judge says this is the first time hes ever raised a written objection to the board about an inmate.
5-10 years for beating his wife to death and now they want to release him after only half of that time served?
Maybe the PA parole board could call the residents of Webster,NY to see how that turned out for them.
These parole boards need to be held criminally liable for their decisions.
Just before Christmas two years ago, a career criminal who had been released from a life sentence by the parole board, killed a Woburn, Massachusetts cop who was about a week away from retirement at the end of the year. Five out of six members of the parole board resigned.
