On Friday, April 27, Herman Bell, a 70-year-old respected elder, was 
released after serving nearly 45 years in prison. Herman was one of 
thousands of incarcerated older people who was repeatedly denied parole 
for over a decade after completing his minimum sentence. His release is 
a result of important and urgent changes in the criminal legal system 
and parole regulations that are part of nationwide efforts to end mass 
incarceration. Let us hope that Herman’s release brings inspiration for 
more change. Herman is deeply humbled and grateful for the broad 
expressions of trust and support, but out of respect for the feelings of 
the victims’ families, he will not be making any public statements. We 
welcome him home.
