CHIEF Prosecutor John Bradley said the parole board will schedule a parole revocation hearing for Shawn C. Appleby, a convicted murderer.


A preliminary hearing held Monday at the Department of Corrections found probable cause that Appleby violated the conditions of his parole, Bradley said. Appleby is in the custody of Corrections. As of press time Tuesday evening, Variety was unable to obtain a copy of Appleby’s alleged violations.
Appleby’s parole application, which was granted in Sept. 2019, was opposed by Bradley who noted that Appleby was granted parole in Feb. 2011 but it was revoked in Dec. 2012 after Appleby violated its conditions.
Appleby has served about 26 years of his 40-year sentence for killing Byung Ok Suh in Nov. 1996 after robbing the victim’s store, Chalan Market, in San Antonio. In 1999 and 2007, he was convicted for escape, adding two more years to his 40-year sentence.
“We will be doing everything in our power to encourage the parole board to hear this case again and revoke the parole, returning Shawn Appleby to prison to serve the remainder of his sentence,” Bradley said on Monday.
“The presence of a pandemic is no excuse for criminal behavior or lenience in cases like this. The community deserves to be protected, and the [Office of the Attorney General’s] Criminal Division will work hard to make sure victims are heard,” he added.
After a preliminary hearing, and a showing of violations, a revocation hearing will commence in 90 days, he said.
