In re Pugh, C066229

The trial court's grant of a petition for writ of habeas corpus is affirmed, and the prisoner is granted parole, where there was no evidence to support the governor's reversal of parole based on his determination that the prisoner was currently dangerous because he lacked insight into his crime, since there was no evidence to support the warden's assertions that the prisoner's varied depictions of the crime, his continued denial of culpability, and his problematic psychological evaluations showed lack of insight.
