for a murder committed by her boyfriend in
1981. Her trial judge noted in the "Extenuating
Circumstances" portion of his report that Judy
"... an accomplice in the capital felony
committed by another person and her
participation was relatively minor."
The "other person" - the man who pulled the
trigger - was acquitted; his co-conspirator was
given immunity and testified at both trials. Judy,
who admits that she coaxed the victim to the
location of what she believed would be a
"robbery by intimidation," became the only one
of the three participants to be convicted.
Judy was sentenced to Life without Parole for a
minimum of 50 years. She is now 65 years old.
