(Amherst, MA) — A well-known Amherst man will be released from prison after being granted parole. Last year Donald Perry was soup kitchen coordinator for Not Bread Alone when found in violation of his parole from a 1983 robbery. The Parole Board thought Perry was lying during a 2012 trial where he was acquitted for receiving stolen property. Dozens of people attended Perry’s recent hearing in Boston to show their support. He’ll be released from the Shirley Correctional Facility on March 12th.
