Pamela Smart’s latest bid for sentence reduction dismissed


Pamela smart, who's serving life in prison for plotting with her teenage lover to have her husband killed, is denied her latest petition to have her sentence dismissed. It was 1990, smart was 22 when she got up 15 year old student at the school where she worked in New Hampshire to shoot and kill her husband. Smart denied it. Her spokesperson says this ruling by the New Hampshire Supreme Court is a continuing disappointment and that smart is rehabilitated and no danger to society. The state attorney general's office has opposed commutation for smart, saying she has never accepted full responsibility for the crimes. The killer Billy Flynn has been released. The case inspired the Nicole Kidman Joaquin Phoenix film to die for. I'm Julie Walker.
