A former Star City attorney who prosecutors said bilked people in southeast Arkansas out of six million dollars by selling bogus investments is eligible for parole. Murray Armstrong was originally sentenced in 1997 to 156 years in prison for defrauding residents of Lincoln, Cleveland and Bradley counties. Officials say Armstrong offered bogus timber contracts and trust transactions. Armstrong`s sentence was reduced after a series of court rulings. The state Department of Community Corrections says Armstrong`s parole request must be automatically approved because his theft convictions are not on a list of mainly violent offenses where the board can deny parole. Officials say Armstrong`s release could be delayed to put him in a pre-release program. Glynetta Burnett, the daughter two Armstrong victims, says she`s glad Armstrong has been locked up for seven years. Burnett says she won`t oppose Armstrongs`s parole as long as he lives in another part of the state.
