    Pollard will automatically be released on November 21, 2015 because under US law federal prisoners serving life sentences for crimes committed before 1987 are automatically released after 30 years unless they commit other crimes or violate prison regulations. Pollard received a life sentence because after he made his plea bargain Pollard and former his wife publicly bragged about their crimes. In a TV interview before sentencing Pollard bragged about how valuable his intelligence was to Israel and his former wife even said that any good Jew would have done what Pollard did,. You don't do that if you want clemency and the court took that into consideration when it imposed a life sentence. I would support clemency if Pollard would take responsibility for his crimes, apologize for his treason, repudiate the supporters who treat him as a hero and promise not to acdept any honors or rewards for spying against his country. But Pollard is unrepentent. As soon as he is released he will give the US the finger and emigrate to Israel where he will be a rich and famous national hero. Since he is unrepentent, and his many supporters regard his treason as heroic, he should serve the rest of his time which, unfortunately, ends in 2015.. BTW, if anyone wants to check on Pollards scheduled release date, you can go to the US federal inmate locator at http://www.bop.gov/iloc2/LocateInmate.jsp and type in his name.
