AS HEARD IN COURT NOVEMBER 20, 2020

Parole Denied

PEOPLE V. JOHN WAYNE CARD: Despite being denied parole for 3 years in 2019, triple murderer Inmate John Wayne Card was given an early parole rehearing on November 17th, 2020 due to recent legislation favoring elderly parole.  The hearing was attended by Deputy District Attorney Michael Coffey who opposed parole on behalf of the People of Glenn County, as well as several members of the victim’s family who were supported by Victim Witness Advocate White.  After a lengthy hearing, the Parole Board again denied parole for 3 years! However, due to the new elderly parole laws, this case is likely to again be granted an early rehearing in 18 months.

 

In 1974, John Wayne Card murdered three members of the Griffiths family; as part of a robbery scheme.  He then kidnapped and held hostage three members of the Skillin family for nearly a week while he attempted to evade law enforcement.  Finally, after abandoning the Skillin family by chaining them to a tree in the forest he was captured near Truckee by a coalition of northern California law enforcement agencies and the FBI.  Inmate Card was convicted at a jury trial and sentenced to death.  However, in 1976 the California Supreme Court ruled that the death penalty statute violated the California Constitution and commuted the death sentences of Inmate Card and approximately 70 other inmates to life in prison.  The statute was later updated to address the constitutional concerns of the California Supreme Court but the commuted death sentences could not be reinstated.

 

The District Attorney’s Office would like to thank the family for their attendance at the hearing and willingness of the 8 family members to speak out against this dangerous killer being released.  We would like to extend a special thank you to the Glenn County Sheriff’s Department and in particular Lieutenant Gibbs who graciously allowed us to use their conference room and their technology to allow the victims to appear at the hearing via video conference due to the California Prison system banning visitors during to the COVID 19 pandemic.
