Judith Clark, sentenced to 75 years for her role as the getaway driver in a 1981 Brinks truck robbery that left two police officers and a guard dead, on Wednesday was granted parole.

Her parole, approved by a vote of 2-to-1 by the state Parole Board, was granted three years after Gov. Andrew Cuomo commuted her sentence, making her eligible to be released.

Advocates for the last several years had pushed for Clark’s release, pointing to her work as a mentor to inmates with AIDs, her work helping to train explosives-detecting dogs and her remorse she felt for her role in the robbery.

Clark has spent the last 38 years in prison and will turn 70 later this year.

Clark was a member of the militant leftist group Weather Underground. The robbery itself was staged by members of the Black Liberation Army as well as former Weather Underground members.

Clark was convicted of murder for her role in the deaths of Nyack Police Sgt. Edward O’Grady, Police Officer Waverly Brown and Peter Paige, a Brinks guard.

Her parole will likely be blasted by Republicans and law enforcement organizations. In 2017, Sen. Pat Gallivan, a western New York Republican, collected more than 10,000 petition signatures opposing her release.

“Today’s ruling by the parole board is a cruel and unjust slap in the face to the families of Sergeant Edward O’Grady, Officer Waverly “Chipper” Brown and Brinks guard Peter Paige,” said Rockland County Executive Ed Day.

“This perversion of justice is a sad continuation of the deadly assault on police officers happening across our Nation and signals to the criminal element that it is open season on cops. The parole board and the elected officials responsible for allowing this domestic terrorist to walk free should be ashamed.”

Senate Minority Leader John Flanagan called the parole board’s decision “chilling.”

“This warped and tilted justice stems from a new and imbalanced approach pushed by Democrats who favor cop-killers and criminals over victims,” Flanagan said. “This egregious decision signals to killers and other criminals that if you do the crime, chances are you might not do all the time. Judith Clark should remain behind bars for the maximum amount of time her sentence allows, which is life.”

But advocates for her release praised the decision by the Parole Board.

“Justice has finally been served,” said Allen Roskoff, president of the Jim Owles Liberal Democratic Club, who has advocated for Clark’s release for several years. “We hope Judith’s release creates opportunities for other women and men who are rehabilitated. Let this be the start of real reform for the Parole Board.”

Sen. Brad Hoylman, a Democrat from Manhattan, posted to Twitter that Clark’s release is an example of how other older inmates who have served time and are no longer dangerous should be considered for release.

“Where there has been ample punishment, proof of rehabilitation, acceptance of responsibility and genuine remorse, the door of mercy in our justice system must be opened,” he said. “Judith Clark transformed her life and the door of mercy opened to her today.”

Her daughter, Harriet Clark, also praised the decision.

“I’m so grateful to everyone who has helped take care of my mother and me over the past thirty-eight years and who has helped to bring my mother home,” she said. “My great hope is that the Parole Board continues to honor the work people do to transform their lives while in prison and lets more families’ loved ones come home.”
