    Default du Pont Denied Parole

    Here's an article from the latest issue of WIN (Wrestling Insider Newsmagazine)...

    John E du Pont, who was sentenced in 1997 in the shooting death of Olympic wrestler Dave Schultz, has been denied parole and will remain behind bars, according to his attorney. Taras Wochuk, du Pon'ts long-time counsel, said that his client, who sought release at the end of his 13-year minimum sentence, will not be getting out of jail this January.

    du Pont, 69, was sentenced to 13 to 30 years in jail in May 1997 for the January 1996 shooting death of Schultz. The victim was then a wrestling coach and living with his family at du Pont's Newtown estate, which has since been sold.

    Delaware County Assistant District Attorney William R Toal, III, who is handling the appeals for his office, said a letter was written opposing du Pont's parole.

    "In general it ahs to do with his failure to take responsibility for the crimes he committed. He acknowledged the act but has not accepted responsibility," Toal said. (end of WIN article)

    Hopefully, he'll be paroled when Charles Manson is pardoned.

    It's refreshing to see that even for a multimillionaire, some things can't be bought.
