    Angry Graham James eligible for day parole this September

    Graham James could be out of jail by September of this year. Information from the Parole Board of Canada, obtained late Friday by Global News in Winnipeg, shows the disgraced former hockey coach and sexual predator will be eligible for unescorted temporary absences and day parole September 20, 2012.

    The Parole Board also confirms James is eligible for full parole on November 18.

    James pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting former NHL player Theoren Fleury and his cousin Todd Holt in their junior hockey days. James was sentenced last Tuesday to two years in jail at a hearing in Winnipeg. Many people denounced the sentence as too lenient.
    Manitoba Justice says the Crown is reviewing the prison sentence handed to James. The Crown has 30 days to decide whether to appeal.

    The board also says decisions on parole eligibility are made following a thorough file review and rise assessment, which often includes an interview with the offender. The PBC considers a number of factors, but the protection of society is always the paramount consideration.

    If James is not granted parole, he would remain behind bars until his statutory release date, July 19, 2013

    ...and I thought James receiving a full pardon in 2007 made me mad....

    They should tie him spread-eagle to the net and let his victims shoot pucks at him.
