Judy Paroled; No Longer A Threat To LDS Leaders

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Cody Robert Judy, the man who held President Howard W. Hunter and a crowd of 17,000 people hostage with what he claimed was a bomb, is out on parole seven years after the incident. Judy was released from the Utah State Prison Tuesday after serving the seven years as part of a 15 year sentence.

Under the terms of the parole, granted October 10th by the Utah Board of Pardons, Judy must successfully complete a course of mental health therapy. The course is meand to address "stress management, anger, life skills and monitor mental-health issues." A failed attempt to put Judy on parole last year had the same requirement, but he did not complete the course.

On February 7, 1993, Judy stormed the podium of BYU's Marriott Center during a Fireside. Holding up what he said was a bomb, Judy tried to force President Hunter, the President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, to read a three page statement proclaiming Judy as prophet of the Church. Judy has since dropped his claim that he should be the prophet.
