The Nebraska Board of Pardons is getting ready to hear requests for reduced punishments from roughly four dozen people, including a man who has tried to prove his innocence through DNA testing.
The Pardons Board is scheduled to meet Monday at 9 a.m. Gov.
Dave Heineman, Secretary of State John Gale and Attorney General
Jon Bruning are the three members of the board.
Fifty-six-year-old Juneal Pratt is one people who will be asking the board to reduce his sentence. He maintains his innocence but is
serving 32-to-90 years for the rape, sexual assault and robbery of
two Iowa sisters at an Omaha motel in 1975.
Pratt has been unable to persuade a court to order DNA testing
that might prove his innocence.
