Model inmate granted freedom after 39 years
DES MOINES —After nearly 40 years in prison for a 1974 shooting outside a Waterloo pool hall, Rasberry Williams will soon be a free man. The Iowa Board of Parole decided Wednesday to parole Williams, 68, after Gov. Terry Branstad commuted Williams’s life sentence last spring based on reports Williams was a model inmate who prevented two inmate attacks on correctional officers. “I’m very grateful today,” Williams said, appearing on closed-circuit television from the North Central Correctional Facility in Rockwell City. Williams’s daughter, Charletta Sudduth of Waterloo, said she’s been praying for her father’s release for years and those pleas were granted Wednesday. “He has a beautiful, wonderful sense of humor after all those years,” she said. “I’m so close to tears.” Williams was convicted of shooting Lester Givhan, 40, on July 20, 1974, after the men argued over a $30 gambling debt. Givhan allegedly offered Williams the money, then pulled it back when Williams reached for it. Williams drew a revolver and fatally shot him, authorities said. Williams claimed self-defense, saying Givhan, who had a criminal history, appeared to be going for a gun. Williams told the parole board he wanted to live with his sister on the south side of Chicago, but the board decided the aging man who walks with a cane should go to an assisted living center in Waterloo or Dubuque. His parole will last the rest of his life. Williams said he accepted that decision. He knows a lot has changed since he was locked up in 1975. “I learned that technology has changed. These small computers …” he said. “Last time I bought a car was ’74.” Sudduth went further. “When he came in it was Afros and stacks, now we have technology at our fingertips,” she said. But she hopes her father will catch up to the essentials. In the meantime, he’ll get to see his seven grandchildren, eat soul food and take a walk unbounded by fences. Branstad commuted Williams’s prison sentence from life without parole to life with the possibility of parole. The Parole Board reduced Williams’s supervision last year, moving him to the minimum-security prison in Rockwell City in September. Commutation is rare in Iowa, with governors reducing the legal penalty for only 30 people in the last 44 years. Most of the commutations cut mandatory life sentences to fixed-length terms with a possibility of parole. Branstad has commuted the life prison terms of just two other inmates in his 18 years in office. One of those, Rubben Jones, 64, of Des Moines, told The Gazette in April 2013 he thought Williams deserved another chance. “Thirty to 40 years of your life, I know it can’t replace a life that has been taken, but I think he’s suffered enough,” Jones said. Branstad has denied commutations for more than 30 people in 2013 and 2014 so far. Sudduth, who was eight years old when her father went to prison, said she didn’t believe he would be freed until she read about the commutation in the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier. “Iowa has one of the highest incarceration rates for African-American men,” she said. Her father’s release brings hope for other black men in the prison system. “There’s a light at the end of the tunnel.” Because commutations are rare, corrections officials want to make sure offenders succeed on the outside. Rockwell City officials told the parole board they have talked with two assisted-living centers that said they could take Williams after his release. Williams will be eligible for Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, a government stipend for low-income elderly people, and other government programs that will support him financially. The transition out of prison will likely take several weeks. “I don’t consider him a danger at this point in his life,” said Dean Lindeman, a counselor at the Rockwell City prison. “He has a completely different approach to life than he did 40 years ago.” Williams told the board he’s participated in victim impact classes and recently spoke, via closed-circuit TV, to a group of high school exchange students. The strongest emotion he showed during the 30-minute hearing was when board member John Hodges asked if Williams would like to be taken outside prison walls for some outings before his release. “It would be lovely. It would be lovely,” he said. “I would like to do that.”

Parole board grants release to longtime inmate Rasberry Williams
An Iowa inmate who killed his neighbor over a gambling debt in 1974 was granted parole today amid celebration from his family members who have long prayed for his release. Rasberry Williams, 68, was convicted of first-degree murder after shooting Lester Givhan outside a pool hall in Waterloo. Williams, however, was a model inmate and in 1979 he helped end a standoff at the Iowa State Penitentiary where an inmate took two prison guards hostage at knifepoint. Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad commuted Williams' life sentence last year, making him eligible for parole. During an interview with Williams today, the board granted him a parole so that he could be released to an assisted living facility in Iowa. Parole board Chair Jason Carlstrom said he did not believe Williams would be a public safety threat if released. "This is a long time in the works," he said. Williams, with a gray beard and walking with a cane, interviewed with the board in Des Moines via video from the North Central Correctional Facility in Rockwell City. In his final words before the board's decision, Williams said he'd accept whatever board members thought was best. "It's very important to me that I be with my family," he said. Williams hoped to be granted a parole that would allow him to move to Chicago to be with his sister, said Charletta Sudduth, Williams' daughter. But just having her father released so he can spend time with his seven grandchildren is enough for the family, she said. "After 37 years of incarceration, just to have him released anywhere, that's what we wanted," she said. Sudduth said Williams' family is extremely thankful to Branstad for the commutation that made Williams' parole possible. The family does not know yet where Williams could be placed in an assisted living facility, Sudduth said. However, they hope it will be one in Waterloo, she said. Typically when an inmate is paroled, they can be released within two to four weeks of the board's decision, said Fred Scaletta, a spokesperson for the Iowa Department of Corrections. Williams' release could take some additional time to ensure he can be placed immediately in a facility, he said.
