Senator Questions Parole Board Nominee's Judgement

One of Gov. Bill Ritter’s nominees to the state’s parole board drew fire Wednesday as one local lawmaker questioned the judgment of a former Denver county court judge.

Sen. Josh Penry, R-Grand Junction, pressed parole board nominee Celeste C de Baca to explain why the Colorado Commission on Judicial Performance recommended that she not be retained at the polls in 1996.

“Judge C de Baca has established a serious pattern of inappropriate demeanor, lack of courtesy and lack of compassion,” the commission reported in its voter-information booklet.

“Tell us why we shouldn’t be concerned about that,” Penry said, noting a parole board exercises judgment similar to decisions made by a judge.

C de Baca replied that the voters disagreed with the commission’s rare recommendation and kept her on the bench.

Although the parole board has new members, it is ironic that this Republican is questioning a nominee that "would not be compassionate". The parole board is putting people back in prison for technical violations as stupid as snapping a dish towel, for more than the term prescribed by law of no more than 6 months.
On one hand the Republicans want an investigation of the early releases now being generated by the Parole Board and points to statistics that the public will be put into danger by releasing them, but on the other hand does want someone who is not compasionate? Mike

People interested in improving the system, not those who built the system, should be placed on these committes on prison reform, not those who have vested interest in maintaining the same broken system. Parole Board included....
