Sherra Wright’s parole was denied in Lorenzen Wright’s case, and her next hearing is set for 2027.

Sherra Wright’s bid for parole was denied by the Tennessee Board of Parole, and she will not face the board again for another five years.

Wright’s request was first heard on May 11, with at least one member recommending that it be denied; nevertheless, the official decision came 12 days later, citing the seriousness of the crime as the cause.

Wright’s next parole hearing is scheduled for May 1, 2027, according to the Tennessee Department of Corrections. Wright will be released on June 8, 2046, at the age of 75, if she completes her sentence.

“Following a May 11, 2022, initial parole hearing, the Board of Parole has now finalized a decision by voting to deny parole for Sherra Wright (#00610305) based on the seriousness of the offense,” a press release from the board, obtained by the Commercial Appeal, said. “The Board also set a review hearing in five years (May 2027).

30 Years in Prison

Sherra Wright was sentenced to 30 years in prison in 2019 after pleading guilty to the murder of Lorenzen Wright, her ex-husband, and former University of Memphis and Grizzlies basketball player, in 2010. She has completed almost four years of her sentence.

In the board’s action sheet, obtained by the Commercial Appeal through a records request, the board said, “The release from custody at this time would depreciate the seriousness of the crime of which the offender stands convicted or promote disrespect of the law.”

Any action taken by the board on parole must be approved by three members. Barrett Rich attended the hearing and voted the same day to deny release. Tim Gobble followed suit six days later, declining on May 17, and Gary M. Faulcon cast the third vote on May 20.

By pleading guilty to facilitation to conduct attempted first-degree murder, Wright avoided a first-degree murder conviction that might have resulted in life in prison.

Wright is currently serving 30 percent of her sentence, or nine years. She would have served less than half of the minimum sentence if she had been granted release. The Deborah K. Johnson Rehabilitation Center in Nashville is where she is now being detained.
