Victim, family members of Brink’s robbery want Judith Clark’s release overturned

A retired detective and the son of an armored truck guard killed in the infamous 1981 Nyack Brink’s heist want the state parole board’s decision to release convicted murderer Judith Clark tossed since one board member failed to disclose her marriage to a murderer that she helped free.

Former Nyack Police Detective Arthur Keenan, who was injured in the robbery, and Michael Paige filed a state Supreme Court petition on Wednesday, arguing that not revealing the personal history of board member Tana Agostini “borders on impropriety.”

“Panel Member Agostini. . . did not properly and publicly disclose her prior work with the Parole Board or her husband’s status as a convicted murderer released from incarceration through actions of the Parole Board previously,” the petition said.

Agostini was one of two panel members in April to vote in favor of Clark’s release.

“The actions of [Defendants] by a 2-1 vote without proper public disclosure on the record of any potential conflicts borders on impropriety,” the petition said.

In 2013, Agostini fell in love with and married Thomas O’Sullivan, who was serving 25 years to life for the 1982 hired murder of a Queens drug dealer.

While working on the state Assembly’s committee overseeing the prison system, Agostini lobbied the board’s chair, Bob Dennison, to write a letter backing O’Sullivan’s bid for freedom.

Paige, whose dad Peter was killed in the robbery, and Keenan want the court to vacate the panel’s decision and send Clark’s parole application to a new panel, “whose members have no conflict of interest or the appearance of any impropriety.”

Mark Blanchard, an attorney representing Keenan and Paige, couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

In Oct. 1981, Clark and a crew of Weather Underground and Black Liberation Army members knocked over a Brink’s armored car in Nanuet, NY, making off with $1.6 million and fatally gunning down two responding cops.

Clark, the getaway driver, had been serving a 75-year murder sentence before her Friday release from prison
