 Adamcik is asking for Post- Conviction Relief...relief can take a number of different forms from release to sentence reduction, even a new trial. According to the petition online, Adamcik is claiming his legal council  was ineffective and in September Judge Brown will hear arguments for and against relief. The case is familiar to many in Pocatello and Doug Milder says he remembers the case and its impact on the community.

"Well I followed the case very closely right after it happened and when it was in the court system and both of my kids went to Poky High and my younger daughter knew this girl and so you know it's a tragic thing."

Attorney Kelly Kumm says a Post- Conviction Relief petition is a civil action as opposed to a criminal action, that is filed by a criminal defendant after that defendant has exhausted all of their criminal appeals, and he also says that is pretty common.

 "Especially in higher profile cases with long sentences, death sentences, where the stakes are very, very high."

Because Adamcik is sentenced to life in prison, Kumm says he thinks it's important to challenge whether he should remain there.

"Not because of any moral issue or political issue, but he has got nothing to lose."

While the online petition is calling for Adamcik to get some form of relief, Pocatello resident Marc Caron who told me he doesn't deserve it

"I think it is wrong, he knew what he was doing.  They got video of both of them talking about it.  He was there, he was part of it."

They hope to have 1,000 signatures by the January hearing, and so far they have 25 signatures to date.

Why should this stone cold killer be released early from prison? Would you want this character living in your neighborhood so he could possibly do it again. He was convicted on evidence that he and Draper made. Didn't he say on the tape that they had to kill Cassie Jo Stoddart. Keep this animal where he belongs.
