No public comment sessions held in December

The Prisoner Review does not hold Public Comment Sessions during the months of April, July and December on an annual basis. Offenders scheduled to have public comments heard during this time will be included in the prior month’s public comment sessions.

The only inmate with a conviction in the Golden Belt who is eligible for a review hearing in December is Cody Wayne King, 37.  He is serving a sentence for first-degree murder, committed Jan. 19, 2001, in Shawnee County. King also has an Ellsworth County conviction for solicitation of trafficking contraband at the Ellsworth Correctional Facility in 2003. King is currently incarcerated out-of-state.
