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 .
Here is a recommendation for parole written by a volunteer writing teacher
Intro to the whole mess 

Read his story of a drug deal went bad,written a few years ago .
Also, since this was one of the first blogs I did, it is a good parole fiasco primer. lots of good info here.
Case summary, done recently

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, only to have it whisked away a few weeks later. Mr Wells was fired for paroling too many prisoners. Now there is no more federal money pouring into our prisons and old law prisoners are becoming expensive in health care. NO Federal dollars pay for their health care- no medicare or medicaid. Time to release old law prisoners like RON Schilling. He still has good years to live and deserves them.
