David Gilbert was granted clemency by Governor Cuomo in one of his last acts, and the right, then, to go before the parole board!Chesa released this statement:I am overcome with emotion. On the eve of my first child’s birth, my father, David Gilbert, has been granted clemency. He served 40 years in prison—nearly my entire life. I am so grateful for this moment and am reminded of the many other families praying for their loved ones’ return.My heart is bursting, and it also aches for the families of the three victims. Although he never used a gun or intended for anyone to get hurt, my father’s crime caused unspeakable harm and devastated the lives of many separate families. I will continue to keep those families in my heart; I know they can never get their loved ones back.
