An Alpena man who viciously raped two girls 40 years ago could be released from a life sentence. According to the Michigan parole board, Terry Lee Booth could be released from prison February 2018.
Booth and a friend, James Arthur Long were convicted of sexual assault in 1976. The rape occurred in Alpena in November 1975, sending one of the 12-year-old victims to the hospital.
Booth, who is now 65, received a life sentence, but that was overturned. Long received 15 to 25 years, and was released from prison in 1983.
If Booth is released he will be placed on 4 years parole and will have no contact with the victims or their families.
