ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A group of New York lawmakers and leaders of police groups is calling on parole officials to deny the release of Judith Clark, an ex-radical who drove a getaway car in the deadly 1981 Brinks armored car robbery.

Republican Sen. Patrick Gallivan, a former state trooper, said Clark’s release would be an “affront” to law-abiding citizens. He was joined at Monday’s Albany event by several other lawmakers, the Rockland County district attorney and the leaders of the state associations of sheriffs and chiefs of police.

Clark is serving a 75-years-to-life sentence for her role in the Brinks robbery in Rockland County, which led to the death of two police officers and a security guard.

Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently commuted Clark’s sentence to make her eligible for parole this year.
