On October 28, 1999, Inmate Medina was 18 years old when he committed the life offense of Second Degree Murder by shooting and killing 19-year-old victim, Christopher Clark in Willows, CA. Inmate Medina was 19 years old when he was sentenced to 15 years to life. Inmate Medina was 31 years old at his first parole hearing in 2013 when parole was previously denied. Since that parole hearing, he obtained a new felony conviction in 2017, Possession of Heroin in Prison, for an additional and consecutive two year sentence from Kings County. The Parole Board denied Inmate Medina's parole for 1 year, when he will be eligible for a hearing for a third time. The parole hearing was virtually attended by Assistant District Attorney Ruby Neumann, who opposed the parole on behalf of Glenn County as well as 6 surviving family members of Mr. Christopher Clark. Thank you to Glenn County Sheriff's Office Lt. Gibbs and Facilities/I.T. Technician Roy Medina for setting up and making the jail conference available for the Virtual Hearing.
