Board Denies Early Release For Robert Kulhavy

Board Denies Early Release For Robert Kulhavy

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A convicted killer will not get an early discharge from his parole.

Robert Kulhavy, 51, pleaded guilty to manslaughter for killing Brenda Schmidt near Dell Rapids in 1985. He has served 20 years of his 60-year sentence in prison.

For the last eight years, Kulhavy has been on parole.  On Thursday, the South Dakota Board of Pardons and Paroles denied his request for an early discharge from that supervision following a plea from the victim’s family.

Under South Dakota’s new criminal justice initiative, parolees can have one month taken off of their parole for every month they behave. Members of the board said Kulhavy has held down a job and has had a clean record since he was released on parole in 2006.

But Schmidt’s family asked that Kulhavy stay on supervision as long as possible.

“I just don’t understand putting him out there unsupervised when you know what he’s capable of,” Schmidt’s sister Tammy Schmidt told the board over the phone Thursday morning.

Despite denying Kulhavy’s early discharge from parole on Thursday, Kulhavy is still likely to be discharged without any board action in 2016 because of his good behavior.
