    Pamela Smart, the key figure in New Hampshire's most publicized murder trial, is asking for a pardon.

    Smart, 37, was convicted in 1991 of persuading her teenage lover and his friends to murder her husband. Four teens, including one who admitted pulling the trigger, testified against her in a trial that was televised live around the state, and prompted several books and a movie.

    In a pardon request filed last week with the Attorney General's Office, Smart repeats her arguments that she didn't get a fair trial because of all the media attention and that her sentence was too harsh.

    Her lawyer, Greg Adamski, compared the case to the recent trial of Scott Peterson, the California man convicted in November of killing his pregnant wife.

    I cannot believe she is still saying she had nothing to do with it. Unbelieveable.

    (Big wave to MrsMush)

    Pamela has convinced herself she didn't do anything wrong.

    I loved the black satire movie with Nicole Kidman, TO DIE FOR.

    Yes she has some MAJOR chutzpah!!!


    I read an article in "O" magazine detailing a program for female inmates to write about their lives and crimes.Pammy is a part of it but according to the program organizer (that annoying "Vagina Monolouges"Eve woman) Pamela still has not owned up to her part in her husband's death.She blames the boys and only seems sorry for hurting her Mother and still in MAJOR denial.


    To Die For is an EXCELLENT movie!

    I've seen the documentary on A&E and once you listen to the telephone calls and her conversation with her friend she is clearly involved. A really shocking crime ,that poor guy.

    Not a very inspiring petition. At first, in fact, I thought it was the one opposing her release!! LOL

    She still will NOT admit any guilt or admit to having anything to do with her husband's murder!!!! After all these years she's still in denial(?) even with all the evidence! The only thing she says she feels bad about is her Mother being "upset" but she admits to NOTHING!!!

    *LOL*
    I wonder if the person who started the thread Read the petition. Or if they are just trying to be sneaky??

    "She has been in prison 14 years and that is long enough. Most of the countries in the civilized world hold a life sentence as 7 years.

    Please sign our petition to ask for Pamela's sentenced to be reduced to time served or at least for Pamela to be released on parole. "

    free pamela smart?.. hmm.. tough one.. but I think I'll pass.:laugh: :behindbar

    One of these days, someone's going to need to explain to me how "life" can be determined by a number. Seems to me if someone gets life in prison, they don't get out of prison until the END of their life. :bang:

    I think she's a sociopath. She will never admit her guilt. I hope she never, ever gets out. She looks like a robot to me, reciting carefully rehearsed phrases like Peterson did in his tv interviews.

    Well, I'm off to sign the petition.

    LOL, OMG did I ever misread that. I am not signing any petition for her reduction in sentence.

    Oh, good grief, NO! I think she should stay right where she is...

    Pam is almost exactly (to the day) one year younger than I am. I remember thinking at the time she was sentenced "Wow! She's going to be in prison for the rest of her life..that must suck!" At the time, she was 23 and I was 24... I am always curious now to see recent pictures of her - I like to see who's aging better! So far, I'm winning - I don't think prison is too great on the complexion!

    ETA: Curious thing about that petition...I noticed that her mother and sister signed it, but not her father and brother...I wonder why that is...

    Pamela Smart should spend the rest of her life in prison. She conspired to have her husband murdered when she could have divorced him.

    She also was a teacher, who ruined the lives of several teenagers. I don't feel sorry for her at all.

    She is a pathological liar whose lies make no sense at all. They have her on tape. Of course, she has a ridiculous excuse for her self-incriminating conversation.

    Vance Lattime Jr., the getaway driver in New Hampshire's notorious Pamela Smart murder case, was granted a three-year sentence reduction yesterday.

    He becomes eligible immediately for parole but first must appear before the state parole board.

    "He's aware that he got it," Mark Stevens, Lattime's lawyer, said. "The family's very pleased with the result."

    WARREN, Maine (AP) -- William Flynn depicts himself as a do-gooder, a member of the Jaycees who has a wife and teenage stepdaughter and likes to play softball.
    At least that's how he'd like to be seen by a judge, who's considering freeing Flynn early from the 28 years-to-life prison term he got for killing his lover's husband as a teenager in the notorious Pamela Smart murder case.
    Since going to prison nearly two decades ago, Flynn has earned a high school equivalency degree and an electrician's helper license, gotten married and raised money for charity. He says in court documents that he has transformed himself into a thoughtful and caring adult, intent on helping others.
    Flynn, 33, was 16 and having an affair with Smart when he shot and killed her husband in New Hampshire in 1990.

    Oh boy. At first reading that I was wondering how the heck he got a wife and teen stepdaughter. Married in prison. Guess we'll have to see how this plays out.

    I can't believe it's already been 2 decades ago!!!

    You know what? He didn't care when Smart's husband was begging for his life. I hope the judge does the same to him.
