Clemency Application Decision To Be Announced

Posted: Updated:
DEER LODGE -

The Board of Pardons and Parole will announce its decision regarding Barry Beach's application for clemency Wednesday morning.

Chairman Mike McKee says a press conference will be held at the Deer Lodge Community Center. The board held a hearing for Beach's application in April.

Beach was convicted in 1979 for the murder of Poplar teenager Kimberly Nees, based entirely on his confession. If the board approves the clemency application, and Beach becomes parole eligible, he then must take part in a parole hearing with the same board. If he is granted a release, Beach will be supervised by the Department of Corrections.
