"I feel you are. This is my fourth hearing with you, and I make a motion that you be paroled."
Board member Leyva voted next.
"I think that you have changed," Leyva said to Mageary, "but the problem is that we have a victim here who is still suffering from the trauma. I had hoped she would come to this hearing at peace with herself. She has not."
So Leyva voted against a parole for Mageary. The second vote turning down his parole was cast by Riddell.

After it was over, the victim spoke briefly to reporters.
"I'm relieved," she said. "There is justice, after all."
Mageary's wife told reporters she was disappointed, but felt enormous sympathy for the victim.

"I would like to give her a hug," she said.
Moments later, Mageary's wife walked over to the victim and introduced herself. Then she gave her a hug and whispered something in her ear.

It made a great photo opportunity.
An hour later, the victim was still trying to figure out why she had been hugged.

"She did it for the publicity," Pollard said. "They were using me, weren't they?"
But so was Governor Symington.
Mageary will be eligible for another parole hearing in six months. Until that time, he remains No. 332017.
