A group has launched a petition calling for the state and parole pardons board to hold a commutation hearing for a Bridgeport man convicted in a double murder.
Eric Amado, 56, was one of three people convicted in a 1990 double murder case. He remains behind bars even though the other two have been released.
Supporters of Amado argue that the hearing state officials approved for Amado has never taken place.
"He's rehabilitated himself. He's a model inmate, and we're devastated. Some people are angry,” said Anthony Small.
"The bottom line is we're looking for our day in court, we're looking for a fair process that will allow Mr. Amado to present his case,” said attorney Dennis Bradley.
The group has also launched a GoFundMe for Amado.
