NEW YORK CITY – Today, the U.S. Parole Commission, which is governed by the U.S. Department of Justice, denied Leonard Peltier parole.

Peltier, 79, is nearly 50 years into two consecutive life sentences for the conviction in 1977 of the murder of FBI agents Jack Coler and Ronald Williams at the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota on June 26, 1975. Currently an inmate at Coleman 1, a maximum-security prison in Sumter County, Florida, Peltier, whose health is failing, is eligible for parole again in June 2026.
