Floral-shop killer has behaved in prison. The parole board wasn't impressed. - SILive.comThursday, May 02, 2019
ISLAND, N.Y. – Despite a positive prison record that includes a clean disciplinary history for the past 15 years, a state parole board has again denied the release of the killer of a Mariners Harbor florist.In rejecting Steven Morales, 57, the panel cited the “tragic, senseless nature” of the nearly three-decades-old crime, along with a “strong statement of official opposition” to Morales’ request to be set free. “Discretionary release on parole shall not be granted merely as a reward for good conduct or efficient performance of duties while incarcerated,” the board wrote. “The panel was … concerned about inconsistencies in your statements about the specifics of the crime itself and your motivations before and afterward.”“With all factors weighed and considered, the panel concludes that your rehabilitation is still incomplete, and therefore, release at this time would be inappropriate as it would so deprecate the serious nature of the crime and undermine respect for the law,” said the board.Morales is serving 25 years to life for the Mother's Day 1991 murder of retired police detective Jasper (Jerry) DeMarco in the victim's Mariners Harbor floral shop.DeMarco, 46, was shot once in the c... https://www.silive.com/news/2019/04/floral-shop-killer-has-behaved-in-prison-the-parole-board-wasnt-impressed.html
