Woman Selected For Parole Board

By From Staff And Wire Reports

Janie Dressen, administrator of the St. Maries Chamber of Commerce, has been selected by the Idaho Board of Correction to fill a vacancy on the Commission of Pardons and Parole.

Dressen’s term on the five-member parole and clemency commission will expire in January 2002.

She succeeds Del Ray Holm of Roberts, Idaho, whose term expired. He had spent more than 14 years on the commission.

Holm was in the majority last May when the parole panel voted 3-2 to recommend that Gov. Phil Batt commute the death sentence of convicted murderer Donald Manuel Paradis to life in prison without parole.

Batt followed the commission’s recommendation.
