Huckabee contradicted on Wayne Dumond

Butch Reeves, once the “criminal counsel to the Arkansas governor’s office” (ABC News) – and as such, the fellow who “handled all requests for clemencies and communications with prisoners,” has this to say about the case of Wayne Dumond:

In a phone interview, Reeves said Huckabee told the board members he thought there was “something nefarious” about the criminal justice system in Dumond’s case, and that the rapist got a “raw deal.” Huckabee said he believed Dumond’s sentence, originally a life sentence plus 20 years, was “way out of bounds” for his crime, raping a 17-year-old high school student.

Reeves said he could recall only a few such appeals being made by a governor.

Of course, Huckabee insists nothing of the kind occurred (Dumond was released, went to Missouri, and murdered Carol Sue Shields).
