In response to reader interest I’ve scanned and posted Barry Beach’s entire 413-page clemency application.
As most Lowdown readers know, Beach is once again appealing to the Montana Board of Pardons and Parole, this time asking them to commute his 100-year, no-parole sentence.
More than 200 people wrote letters to the board on Beach’s behalf, including Sen. Jon Tester, former Sen. Conrad Burns, and Billings Mayor Tom Hanel.
Below is a DocumentCloud including the entire clemency application. To view and download the file (57 mb) in a separate window click here.
The letters begin on page 73.
