Parole Possible For 25-Year Robbery Terms DES MOINES (AP) - Persons serving prison sentences for robbery with aggravation may Im1 eligible for parole, even though the law specifies their imprisonment must be 25 years, says Asst Atty. Gen Thomas I) McGrane. The indeterminate sentence law says courts must not set a specific number of years for a sentence when people over 16 years old are convicted of crimes other than escape, treason, murder, or crime that carries a penalty of life rn prison. But the prison term must not exceed the maximum time provided by law Donald L. Olson, executive of the board of parole, asked for the opinion because the section of law dealing with robbery with aggravation states that people who are armed with a "dangerous weapon" during a robbery "shall be imprisoned, for a term of 25 years."
