Convicted Douglas County murderer Wilford Molester Galloway has been passed for parole until June 2014, according to Jan Lunsford, spokesman with the Kansas Department of Corrections.

Galloway was convicted of first-degree murder in the 1997 shooting death of Floyd White. According to court records, Galloway shot White during an argument just outside of Lawrence, and left White’s body on the side of a road. Galloway was sentenced to life in prison, but became eligible for release in June after serving 15 years behind bars. Galloway is incarcerated at the El Dorado Correctional Facility.

The Kansas Prison Review Board, which makes parole decisions, can pass an inmate for parole for up to 10 years.

Lunsford said a parole decision has yet to be made for convicted Lawrence serial rapist Charles Hunter, who is also eligible for parole this month. Hunter was convicted of a series of rapes and home invasions that occurred in December 1978 in Lawrence.

Please tell me that middle name is a typo....

The middle name is correct. Obviously, this has generated some discussion in the newsroom since we've been covering the case. Several have mentioned that the name is a surname out there, and pronounce mol-a-ster, or something to that effect.

Yeah, molestation is definitely a new concept...wow, I feel dumber just writing it. Here's a suggestion 0day before you speak/type: stop, and pull your head out of whatever location it is presently in, and just say/type the exact opposite of what your gut instinct tells you to. This may save your life someday.

My guess is it's a family name. Just like there are people with the last name of Butts. Or the kids I knew in school w/ the last name of Dick. Maybe it was his mother's maiden name.
