HB43 is law after October 1

House Bill 43 has now taken effect in Montana as of October 1.  Barry’s attorney filed an application for executive clemency with the Board of Pardons and Parole on October 8.  The 18-page document focuses on Barry’s productive life during the 18 months that he lived in Billings from December 2011 through May 2013.  With the new law, Montana’s Governor, Steve Bullock, can grant clemency even without the recommendation of the Board of Pardons and Parole.


  1. Why do the wheels of justice move at such a slow pace when trying to disprove guilt. It looks like someone is trying to drag their feet at freeing Barry so that maybe it won’t happen at all. We seem to always be in a rush to judge someone guilty but slow to look into all the facts & reports & findings to prove someone’s innocence. It is really a shame that Barry has had to put up with all the feet dragging on the part of our judicial system.

    Set him free.. He’s innocent.
