Board Member : Can you tell us what consideration, if any, you've given this crime?
David Hicks : Well... I regret it, everyday. I was young at the time, and I wasn't thinking - you know, about the consequences. And I'm very sorry.
Board Member : The victim is here. Mr. Crane, would you like to make a statement?
[Martin stands, looks at the prisoner's mother, then shakes his head]
Martin Crane : I have nothing to say.
Board Member : Would you give us a moment?
[pause while the board members confer]
Board Member : Mr. Hicks, the board commends you for your participation in the in-house programs to better yourself, and for your record of excellent conduct. We have weighed this against your conviction of shooting a police officer during the commission of a robbery, and find that the length of your time served has not yet met the standards for proportionality, equality, and justice as required by state law. Parole is denied.
