October 3, 2018 - State Attorney Testifies Before the Florida Commission on Offender Review

Today, State Attorney Phil Archer joined family members of Arne Trossman and argued against the parole of STEPHEN HARKINS before the Florida Commission on Offender Review in Tallahassee. HARKINS is serving life for the brutal 1976 Murder, Kidnapping and Sexual Assault of Trossman.

The Commission denied parole, suspended the presumptive parole date, and set the next hearing for the maximum term of 7 years from now.

In a statement Mr. Archer said “I’m thankful for the decision of the Commission that ensures that this brutal killer will remain in custody.” He went on to say that “The Trossman family has relived the pain and suffering of this terrible crime at each parole hearing. But they come, every time, and speak for Arne. I was grateful for the opportunity to join with them this time.”
