Ron was convicted when a life sentence meant 13 and 1/2 years. He has been to the parole board many times and ironically was granted parole by former parole chairman Leonard Wells back in the early 200's, only to have it whisked away a few weeks later. Mr Wells was fired for paroling too many prisoners. Time to release old law prisoners like RON Schilling. He still has good years to live and deserves them.

Ron is one of the first people I met doing this work and is indicative of the waste of present policies. He has been going to parole hearings since the late 80's. He was a Viet Nam veteran and on a destructive path after the war so prison may have saved his life , but he is a changed men and he continues to grow spiritually and helps all those around him . The waste that this man is not among us in heartbreaking
