Parole Date Set for Shooter of Murray Police Sargent in 1999

In case you missed it The Salt Lake Tribune is reported that Quentin Hurlich was given a parole date by the Utah Board of Pardons and Parole on June 24th. Mr. Hurlich shot Murray police Sargent Ross Huff in the leg, pelvis and hand back in 1999. Mr. Hurlich plead guilty to first-degree felony attempted aggravated murder and received a sentence of five years to life in prison.

The Salt Lake Tribune quotes Sgt. Huff at the June 2nd parole hearing as saying “As the time has passed over the years, I can have no feelings of ill will toward Mr. Hurlich. However, I will maintain Mr. Hurlich poses a threat to society. This board would be doing a disservice to not only myself, but to every law enforcement officer in this state by granting any decision for his release.”

Against Sgt. Huff’s suggestions, Mr. Hurlich will be paroled in June 2028. However, the article in The Salt Lake Tribune also states that after Mr. Hurlich is paroled, he will serve a 78-month federal prison commitment for weapons violation.
