In re Butler, B253193

Judgment granting inmate Butler’s habeas corpus petition to overturn the Governor’s denial of his release after the Board of Prison Terms’ decision to parole Butler after 27 years in state prison for a double homicide is reversed, where the Governor did not improperly rely on new evidence from outside the administrative record, and evidence supports the Governor’s decision to deny release.
