NEW CITY, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Law enforcement officials in Rockland County are sending a message to Gov. Andrew Cuomo: do not grant clemency to Judith Clark, a getaway driver in the infamous 1981 Brinks robbery.
The Rockland County district attorney’s office said paperwork arrived from Cuomo’s office about a possible commutation of Clark’s sentence. The DA’s office said it will oppose her release.
“It was a case of domestic terrorism. It was a carefully planned and executed crime and she was right at the center of the planning and execution,” Rockland County District Attorney Thomas Zugibe told CBS2’s Lou Young.
Clark, 64, was sentenced to 75 years in prison for her role in the Oct. 20. 1981, armored truck heist, which left a guard and two police officers dead. She’s not eligible for parole until 2056
