A man was convicted of his third strike in 1994 under the "Three Strikes You're Out" law passed in Washington in 1993.  He was drug addicted and had committed a string of robberies by pretending to have a gun in his pocket.  In reality, he had no weapon and none of his victims were injured, though he pushed one onto the ground in a robbery where he grabbed her money bag as she was on her way to make a deposit at the nearby bank.  The man was convicted of his third "strike" offense and was sentenced to a life sentence without the possibility of parole.  After filing a clemency petition on the man's behalf and presenting his case to the Clemency Board, the Board unanimously voted to grant the man early release.
