McDonnell remakes Va. Parole Board

By Anita Kumar

Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) announced Friday afternoon that he has appointed four new members to the five-member Parole Board.

The board, created in 1942, grants parole to inmates who are eligible from before Virginia abolished parole in the 1990s and advises the governor on clemencies.

Bill Muse, senior assistant attorney general in the correctional litigation section, will serve as the new board chairman. He joined the attorney general's office in 1985 after 12 years of private practice in the Richmond area.

All members will begin next month and serve at the pleasure of the governor. McDonnell also appointed a part-time investigator. He still must fill one vacancy.

See below for the other appointments:

Karen Brown, Vice-Chairman
As a prosecutor for 16 years, she served in the Newport News and Chesapeake offices of the commonwealth's attorney. She prosecuted cases in the Juvenile and Domestic Relations, General District and Circuit courts with a concentration on child abuse and sexual assault cases.

Rita Angelone, Part-Time
She was the resource development coordinator for the Virginia Foundation for Healthy Youth and spent several years as grants program administrator for the foundation. She also served as a grant monitor for domestic violence grants at the Department of Criminal Justice Services.

Minor Stone, Part-Time
He spent 29 years in law enforcement as a police officer and supervisor. He owns and operates a tourism-related business in Virginia Beach.

Trudy Harris, Part-Time Investigator
She is retired from the Virginia State Police. She is an adjunct instructor at Piedmont Virginia Community College in the Police Science Program.
