THE Conditional Parole Commission of Tallahassee, Fla., this week ratified a decision to allow Costa Rican citizen Ronny Zamora, who has been in prison for the past 27 years, to be let out of prison to return to Costa Rica on June 1. Zamora, 43, was found guilty of murder in 1977, in the first trial to be televised in the United States. Although he was 15 at the time, he was tried as an adult and sentenced to life in prison.
