40 Years a Prisoner: Will Governor Grant Clemency This Time for 1981 Water Pistol Robbery?

Rolf Kaestel turns 70 this week. He’s 40 years into a life sentence in prison. In 1981 he robbed a taco shop of $264 by showing the manager the butt of a water pistol. Even manager Dennis Schluterman has pleaded with the Arkansas governor to grant clemency. Will Gov. Asa Hutchinson change his mind about releasing Kaestel this time?
