Clemency given to 2 men involved in 1988 shooting of Arbor Hill drug dealers

Two Brooklyn men serving life sentences for their roles in the 1988 execution-style slaying of two Arbor Hill drug dealers were commuted by Gov. Andrew Cuomo ahead of the New Year.

Alphonse Riley-James and Roy Bolus, who were both 18 years old when convicted, will be released from prison in the next few weeks after serving 30 years for murder, robbery, burglary and criminal possession of weapons charges. Neither were convicted of being the cause of the deaths.

The two were among 29 individuals Cuomo on Monday granted clemency to in recognition of their rehabilitative efforts and to remove barriers that criminal records might present to a prisoner’s immigration status.
