Among other things, they told her in the letter:
- The crimes of which Doneghy was convicted, MANSLAUGHTER 2nd DEGREE (Running over, and violently killing Ofc. Bryan Durman), & ASSAULT 2nd DEGREE (For stabbing Lt. Sam Murdock with a knife) were “NON-VIOLENT CRIMES.
- In addition, they informed her that the Durman family can only have 10 people attend the Victim Hearing, and that they would be limited to 30 minutes total in which to explain their loss and opinion about paroling Doneghy.
- They told her that the Parole Board had the folowing options:
a. Grant parole to Doneghy.
b. Defer Doneghy’s parole for a period of 24 months.
4. They told Brandy Durman that Doneghy had served 3.8 years of his 20 year sentence, and that he has approximately 9.9 years remaining on that sentence.
WAIT A MINUTE! The jury gave that killer 20 years. 3.8 years plus 9.9 years adds up to 13.7 years total. What the HELL happened to the other 6.3 years that the jury thought they gave to Doneghy??????

ON-LINE PETITION TO OPPOSE THE EARLY PAROLE OF GLENN DONEGHY PLANNED.
HEY, CRIME-FIGHTERS, I just learned that because the Parole Board has limited the number of people who could attend the Victims Hearing, that Brandy Durman is going to create an ON-LINE PETITION so those who oppose the EARLY PAROLE of Glenn Doneghy can sign it and thereby voice their own opposition.
STAY TUNED Crime-Fighters – We’ll let you know when it’s ready to be signed.
READER RESPONSE: Over 850 readers responded to this outrage. One former Corrections Dept employee shared his inside information about the entire parole process as follows:
“He can have supporters at his hearing, he will yap all he wants and have time to present the parole board with his trivial insignificant certificates to them and tell them how much he will abide by the conditions of his parole! Waste of time, set a percentage and abolish the parole board.”
