Defense attorney Charles Weisselberg, a University of California-Berkeley law professor, said he was disappointed the decision stopped short of setting his client free…. He also said Bowers is taking the news in stride, trying not to get overly upbeat after years of setbacks. “He’s been tested severely, and he’s handled it with calmness, dignity and good judgment,” Weisselberg said.

Bowers’ lawyers are concerned about the commission’s ability “to address the case fairly and impartially, given its track record,” Charles Weisselberg, a UC Berkeley law professor and an attorney for the inmate, said Friday. “But we’re very grateful that Mr. Bowers has another opportunity for release,” he added.
