Zachary Parker, the 21-year-old who was allegedly protected by three former top Nassau County Police officials after burglarizing Kennedy High School in 2009, is up for parole this week and may be released, according to Newsday.

Parker, of Merrick, is currently being housed at Lakeview Shock Incarceration Correctional Facility. The bootcamp program he’s enrolled in rewards graduates with freedom, as long as the crime they’re incarcerated for is not of the violent variety.

Parker was sentenced to serve 1 to 3 years after he crashed a car while driving with a revoked license. Parker was already serving 5 years probation after pleading guilty to stealing $11,000 in video equipment from JFK High School.

Second Deputy Commissioner William Flanagan, Deputy Chief Inspector John Hunter and Detective Sergeant Alan Sharpe were indicted by a grand jury on charges that they conspired to and intentionally prevented the arrest of Parker, whose father was a financial benefactor of the police, the Nassau County District Attorney's office said.

The guy is just a scumbag and I have no doubt he will be back in the news for another crime shortly. But he didn't assault (yet?) anyone. Our elected judges and the loophole lawyers see fit that a rapist or someone CONVICTED of a violent assault can be out on 'good' behavior in no time. Why should this local punk be any different? All these scumbags deserve MULTIPLE chances -don't they? Just thank your freindly neighborhood bleeding heart liberal. If these criminals would only victimize libs, maybe we could get our judicial system to change.
