State parole board seeks comment
The Kansas Parole Board will conduct public comment sessions this month for inmates who are entitled to a parole hearing in December.
If parole were granted, it would be in January.
Among inmates eligible for a hearing is Ermond Littrice, convicted in Leavenworth County of aggravated battery, and convicted in Wyandotte County of second-degree murder.
In determining inmates' suitability for parole, the parole board considers the crime or crimes; prior criminal history; program participation; disciplinary record; parole plan; comments received from the victim, the public and criminal justice officials; and prison capacity.
Public comment sessions will be conducted from 10 a.m. to noon Nov. 27 at City Hall, One McDowell Plaza, 701 N. Seventh, Kansas City, Kan.; and from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Nov. 17 in the Landon State Office Building, Room 106-A, 900 S.W. Jackson St., Topeka. Anyone who would like to express an opinion but cannot attend a comment session may write to the parole board, Landon State Office Building, 900 S.W. Jackson St., Room 452-S, Topeka, 66612-1220.
