Jack Kevorkian to be paroled

From Times Wire Reports

After more than eight years behind bars for murder, an ailing Jack Kevorkian will be paroled in June on a promise not to help anyone else commit suicide, prison officials said in Lansing.

Corrections Department spokesman Russ Marlan said the parole board took the 78-year-old Kevorkian’s declining health into consideration, along with the question of whether the former pathologist would be a danger to society. Kevorkian, once the nation’s most vocal advocate of assisted suicide, is serving a 10- to 25-year sentence.
