Jack Kevorkian is scheduled to be paroled in June 2007.

Incarcerated for the past ten years at Lakeland Correctional Facility in Coldwater, Michigan, Jack Kevorkian is scheduled to be paroled in June 2007 after promising not to assist in any more suicides, q-he American Humanist Association's 1994 Humanist Hero--now age seventy-eight, frail, and reportedly with less than a year to live--had assisted over 130 people to die with dignity before being sentenced to ten to twenty-five years for the 1998 poisoning of Thomas Youk, who suffered from Lou Gehrig's disease.
