And, to make sure that remains the case, Winnebago County States Attorney, Joe Bruscato testifies at a protest hearing at the Dixon Correctional Center--

To convince the prisoner review board that Nelson needs to stay behind bars -- for good.

"Paroling Simon Peter Nelson at this time would depreciate the seriousness of this horrific crime killing their six children while they were sleeping. It also would not provide justice for those six victims," said Bruscato. 

Nelson has been behind bars since the horrific crime in this Rockford home back in 1978.

The State's Attorney surrounded by people from his office was the only one to testify. He said he not only spoke for family members but for the Rockford community as well.

"It's the responsibility of the States Attorney to appear on behalf and support the victims of this horrible crime. It's also my responsibility to speak on behalf of the community of Winnebago as well as to make sure the county of Winnebago and any other community is safe," said Bruscato.
