Parole Hearings
Sidley helped several prisoners obtain parole in separate hearings before the U.S. Parole Commission. One prisoner, Herman Elliott, who was serving a life term for murder and had been incarcerated since 1991, was granted parole after his third hearing. Another prisoner, William A. Johnson, who was serving a life term for murder and had been incarcerated since 1989, was paroled after his second hearing. Parole was also granted to a third prisoner, Warren Peters, who had been sentenced to 28 years to life for crimes he committed in 1984, when he was a 19-year-old drug user and drug dealer.
