WATCH: Obama Urged to Free Native American Activist Leonard Peltier

Jan 01, 1993 - USP Coleman, Florida, U.S. - LEONARD PELTIER (born September 12, 1944) is a Native American activist and member of the American Indian Movement (AIM). In 1977 he was convicted and sentenced to two consecutive terms of life imprisonment for first degree murder in the shooting of two Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents during a 1975 conflict on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Peltier's indictment and conviction have been the subject of much controversy; Amnesty International placed his case under the ''Unfair Trials'' category of its Annual Report: USA 2010, citing concerns with the fairness of the proceedings. Peltier is incarcerated at the Coleman Federal Correctional Complex, Florida. Peltier's next scheduled parole hearing will be in July 2024. Barring appeals or parole, his projected release date is October 11, 2040. (Credit Image: © Kevin McKiernan/ZUMAPRESS.com)
