A 43 year old man, who was sentenced 7 years ago for killing a Magnolia girl when he was 14, may be released from prison in June, according to a Seattle Times article. The man, John Nicholas Athan, was convicted of the 21 years after the crime in 2004 when he was tricked into providing police with DNA. The only thing that would prevent Athan’s release would be an objection from Governor Christine Gregoire. Gregoire has not yet made her decision and the victim’s family opposes the release, despite the Parole Board’s decision. Personally, I hope Gregoire intervenes. If you do the crime, you do the time.
