Yoko Ono Opposes Parole For John Lennon's Killer
Yoko Ono will again oppose the release of the man who nearly 30 years ago killed her husband, former Beatle John Lennon, and who comes up for parole next month, her lawyer said. Ono has consistently opposed parole for Mark David Chapman and has again sent a letter to the parole board, her lawyer, Peter Shukat, told the Daily News. "Her position has not changed," Shukat said in an article published Tuesday. Lennon was shot to death on December 8, 1980, outside the famed Dakota apartment building just west of Central Park as he and Ono returned home from a recording session. Chapman - now 55 and serving a 20-years-to-life sentence for the slaying - is scheduled to be interviewed by a three-member parole board panel during the week of August 9. It will be his sixth bid for parole. Shukat refused to say whether Ono's most recent letter to the board is the same one she has submitted every two years since Chapman first became eligible for parole in 2000. In that letter, Ono wrote that if Chapman is released, "I am afraid it will bring back the nightmare, the chaos and confusion once again. Myself and John's two sons would not feel safe for the rest of our lives." She also wrote that Chapman would not be safe if allowed back on the streets. Lennon would have been 70 this October.
