Rochester, N.Y. -- Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley and Sheriff Patrick O'Flynn are encouraging citizens to sign a petition to keep a convicted killer in prison.
James Moore was convicted in 1963 for the rape and murder of 14-year-old Pamela Moss, who was from Penfield.
To avoid the death penalty, Moore agreed to spend the rest of his life in prison. A change in the law now allows the possibility of parole.
A hearing is scheduled for June 16th.
