Now the tall, lean 31-year-old in the slightly large grey suit, stood before the state's Adult Parole Board Thursday asking to be freed from prison when he becomes eligible for parole in two months.
"No, not really," Dingman replied.
Furlone, a retired state trooper, read aloud Dingman's recent written answer to why he went to prison.
"I guess you have to develop walls around yourself or some emotional zeroing of your life to survive," Furlone continued. "That's what concerns the three of us,...I just don't want to throw you out there cold."
"From the bottom of our hearts, we forgive him and we want to give him a second chance," Landry of Greenfield said.
Dingman declined to speak with the media after the hearing. But his attorney said he "was grateful for the opportunity to be listened to and to know that the board heard him."
Dingman pleaded guilty in 1997 to two counts of second-degree murder for the Feb. 9, 1996, shooting his parents to death in a plea deal with the state. In exchange, he agreed to testify against his older brother, Robert, then 17, at trial.
