I have reached the conclusion, after mature deliberation, that Hrandt's sentence was excessive. "It has been decided that the courts are powerless to render aid in this case anil the only help which Hrandt now can get is through tho exercise of executive clemency. Hrundt has confessed his sins. He has told mo tile truth.
