    Mike Huckabee is flat out not telling the truth about Maurice Clemmons. The future cop killer was 17 at the time of his crimes in Arkansas, not 16, as Huckabee claims.

    Also, there were numerous criminal incidents and felony convictions against Clemmons prior to the commutation.

    He was also very violent in the courtroom. Get the full story here:

    Clemmons would still be in jail in Huckabee had not commuted his sentence. Yes, he did release him. He knew the second he signed the commutation the Clemmons was go free.

    There, 16-year-old Maurice Clemmons embarked on a seven-month crime spree. He robbed a woman in a hotel parking lot, punching her in the face. He burglarized the home of a state trooper. He got arrested and expelled for bringing a pistol to his high school. Years later, Clemmons would write from prison that he "fell in with the wrong crowd" and "wanted to fit in and be accepted." He described his youth in rhyme: a "16-year-old misguided fool, whose own life he was unable to rule."

    At 17, Clemmons was sentenced to 108 years in prison. To Clemmons' family, the sentence was outrageous. He was staring down time that seemed more suited to rape or murder.

    That is the heart of all this. This is so true, it smacks the Hucksters fans in the face and there is NOTHING they can say to dispute this.

    Yurt, click on the link I provided. Then click on the hyperlinks which clearly show Clemmons was 17 when he was arrested numerous times.

    He was born in February 1972. Except for when he beat up a 7th grader & robbed him, all of Clemmons' crimes he was convicted of happened after April 1989...meaning he was 17.

    yeah, seattle, which i would think has a great stake in getting the facts right, said he was 16

    so your claim that huckabee is "lying" about his age is as false as your claim that huckabee released him
