    From an article about his release:

    I'm not understanding why she would think she could be released when she was sentenced to life without possibility of parole.

    She isnt going to see freedom unless she gets a commutation of her sentence or pardon from the Governor. I don't see that happening. I would agree with some of the posts above about how classy and strong the victim's family is. I hope Flynn can do something constructive with his life still.

    Yeah, I just did some googling and found that her attorneys have tried to get around the sentence. There is a web site in support of her. Of course, Mom and Dad completely believe in her innocence and bemoan the travesty of justice which put an innocent woman in jail. I guess she has a fair amount of supporters who believe a 16 year old boy murdered his teacher's husband without her support or knowledge.

    Because she's a narcissistic, vengeful woman? She'll never step up and take responsibility and Flynn did so. I have to wonder how many young men landed in prison decades ago because they were manipulated by a woman. Our corrections philosophy needs to be equal opportunity.

    Narcissist or sociopath are both possibilities.

    The problem is that she is still lying. You can not give mercy to someome who is still lying. Just admit it. If you did and then were repentant 20 years later people may listen. But you keep lying and the truth is that he would never ever have shot your husband if it wasn't for you. That is simply something you can not get around.

    William Flynn was 16 and known as "Billy" in 1990 when he and three friends participated in what prosecutors said was Smart's plot to kill her husband in Derry, New Hampshire. Flynn pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and served his sentence in Maine.

    Also released on parole Thursday in New Hampshire is Patrick "Pete" Randall, who held a knife to Gregg Smart's throat while Flynn shot him in the head.

    ‘Pamela Smart: An American Murder Mystery’ Guide to Who’s Who

    "The 1991 murder trial of Pamela Smart is one that takes a number of twists and turns. It began with the apparent home invasion that resulted in the death of her husband, Gregg, to the revelation that the murder had been carried out by a trio of teenagers, who, it would be revealed, was actually coerced into that killing by the victim’s wife, who had been having a sexual affair with one of them.

    It’s all explored — in detail — in the Sunday, August 19, debut of Pamela Smart: An American Murder Mystery, a three-part docuseries that airs exclusively on the Investigation Discovery network. What follows is a look at who the key players of this sensational story that was called “The Trial of the Century” (sorry, O.J. Simpson)...."

    OK ...I just watched the 1st two episodes of ID's "Pamela Smart: An American Murder Mystery" and I'm still convinced of Pam Not-So-Smart's guilt! First of all ...There were too many corroborating stories from witnesses implicating Smart. They haven't gotten into Cecilia's testimony yet or Pam's cold-blooded testimony in her own defense. That is being saved for tomorrow night's episode. The sleazy defense attorney’s insistence that the three perps 'boys' committed the crime completely on their own and of their own fruition doesn't hold water for me. Second, the premise that Billy Flynn was so lovelorn that he decided to kill ....make that murder ...Greg is implausible. It doesn't explain WHY the other two boys would possibly go along with becoming co-murderers without anything being in it for them. The interview with the friend of the three murdering boys corroborated their story that Pam was going to pay them from Greg's life insurance policy! This evidence was obtained in an interview BEFORE the three were arrested & had time ...allegedly ...to concoct their testimony in a conspiracy to blame Pam for the crime. The insurance money pay out explains why they might decide to help commit the murder. The implication that they would commit such a crime solely to support their buddy Flynn without any other motivation doesn't make any rational sense. Add to that observation, that these three dimwits didn't have the combined intellect or intelligence to come up with their very detailed account of events prior to & during the crime. Details like ...not using a knife so as not to get blood all over Pam's white household belongings/furniture as per her instructions; going inside the apt through a pre-unlocked basement entrance which they wouldn't have even known about if not for Pam's compliance; locking the dog 'Hallen' downstairs so as not to traumatize it (what kid would think of that ...or even care?). I've read previously in accounts that Pam seemed more concerned about her dog after Greg's murder than she did that her husband was just brutally murdered. Pam herself tried to hide pertinent information early on in the police's investigation process: Cecelia being in the home a week prior to the murder when asked by police to give them a list of everyone who had been there the prior month; the fact that she hid from the police that she'd been having an affair with Flynn & he might be the possible culprit to the murder. Putting aside the fact that she might not want that information coming to light, she had to realize that it might become public knowledge eventually anyway and would put her under suspicion (which it inevitably did) for not admitting the fact right away. Wouldn't it have been more important to share that information IF she truly wanted to help the police find the murderer of her husband she so professed to love!? She loved Gregg so much that she was having an ongoing affair with a 15 year old boy <<< SARC! Pam's behavior the entire post-murder made her look very suspicious & showed a "consciousness of guilt" ...including her lack of an immediate emotional reaction to being arrested for her husbands murder. If you were innocent & being arrested for the murder of your husband/wife, wouldn't you be screaming at the police to the high heaven that they were wrong & that you had nothing to do with the crime as they were leading you away in handcuffs. On the other hand, if you were involved wouldn't you react exactly like she did ... in quiet compliance? Again ..."consciousness of guilt" .... I'm sure I'll have much more 'proof' after tomorrow night's episode.

    Pamela Smart requests sentence reduction from governor, Executive Council

    Pamela Smart is appealing to the governor and Executive Council in hopes of getting her life-without-parole prison sentence reduced.

    The Executive Council is scheduled to take up the matter Wednesday.

    The attorney general's office submitted an 88-page report in response to Smart's request for a commutation. The attorney general has recommended that she not receive a sentence reduction.

    Flynn and three others convicted on lesser charges in the murder are all out of prison.

    New Hampshire's Executive Council has postponed hearing a sentence reduction appeal from Pamela Smart, who's serving life in prison for plotting with her teenage lover to kill her husband.

    The council decided Wednesday to push back the request until after new council members are sworn in in January.

    Smart, 51, has exhausted her appeal opportunities since she was imprisoned in 1991. She's petitioned New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu and a five-member council that approves government appointments, contracts and pardons to grant her a hearing for parole consideration or reduce her sentence. The council meets Wednesday; it denied a similar request nearly 14 years ago.

    Seems Pam is still trying but honestly I do not think she is ever going to see the light of day except from prison windows.

    ETA Can't believe it has been 29 years, almost seems like yesterday.
