CHARTIER CLEANERS THE WELLINGTON (TEXAS) LEADER Thursday, March 26, 1964 15 Year Term — from page one en away from Rodriguez. Martinez left the room, then returned immediately, and the slaying took place, according to Forbis. Texas law provides tlhiat a prisoner may be eligible for parole after serving one third of his sentence, or 15 years, whichever is less. Time off for good behavior comes off this. A prisoner is not necessarily (paroled after serving a .third of his sentence, however, as that will depend on tihe man himself, his attitude, 'behavior •and other factors entering into it. This means, then, that Gonzales will be eligible to be considered for parole after serving 15 years and Rodriguez after serving 5 years, less any t,ime credited for good behavior. This is tihe first time \ even veteran law enforcement officers can rememiber two murder cases' being tried in the same session of court here. Officers said the men lived in adjoining rooms in the barracks at Dodson. DR. JACK L.
