Danton’s Father Speaks Out On Parole For His Son

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,

There is no nice way of saying this: Mike Danton lied to the National Parole Board yesterday.

He told a whopper—and they bought it hook, line and sinker.

The former hockey player, imprisoned for his bizarre and awkward role in a failed murder-for-hire plot, told the Parole Board that the target of his ire was not his disgraced agent, David Frost, but his estranged father, Steve Jefferson.

That is, in a word, nonsense.

“I’m so mad it’s not funny,” Steve Jefferson said yesterday. “I don’t know if you can print what I’m really feeling.

“I can’t believe the judicial system ... I want people to know that the system has failed us again and again and again. One of the conditions of his parole is he is not allowed to speak to me, but he is allowed to see Dave Frost with his parole officer’s approval. Does any of this make sense to anybody?”
