Joseph Donovan Sr. reacts with attorney Ingrid Martin, right, after a parole hearing in Natick, Mass., Thursday, May 29, 2014, for his son, Joseph Donovan, 38 who was sentenced to life in prison for felony murder for his participation in a 1992 robbery of a Massachusetts Institute of Technology student who died of stab wounds. Donovan, who was convicted at 17 but was not the killer, was appealing for a release after Massachusetts' highest court struck down mandatory life sentences for juveniles in December.
