Give Lifers With Possibility Of Parole Their Release Dates

2,048 Letters Sent So Far

it is time for us to all take a stand for prison inmates with life sentences. we always talk about how the prison system is there to rehabilitate criminals. the department of corrections along with the parole board has decided that in order to be eligible for parole you have to complete certain requirements. the first requirement that the actual time that the prisoner received has been completed. during this time, the prisoner have to also be a model inmate. The inmate must also show remorse for his crimes. the inmate should also take self help classes for any substance abuse issues. The inmate also should take advantage of any educational courses offered to learn marketable job skills.

the question should now be asked, what else can they do to make themselves eligible for parole? after completing all the requirements said above, the inmate should be allowed to get a parole date. this is not taking place. something needs to be done. Lifers are not getting a second chance like they should.

Husband has 25 to life (non-violent) offense.
My husband was falsely accused no evidence just a statement the detectives told him how to write it. Everyone deserves a second chance. Between 1-4% are recommitted on new chargers. They have paid their debt to society. Some ate even more productive in society than the average free man
Please give them a second chance and time given back for being the model inmate. Thanks on advance
I'm signing because my cousin has been given life without parole for nonviolent crimes. He's been in prison my entire life and I'm 40. He has a sick mother with no one to care for her. I've seen murders get less time than he has already served. Please if anyone can help me I'd be eternally grateful. These laws need to change! Nonviolent criminals should not be forced to spend more time in prison than those who have actually hurt someone! Please email me anything I can do shannonbolandblackston@gmail.com
I am signing because I have someone whom is very dear to me in prison and has been their since 98.,He was 17 when he was told life with parole. He has done 16-17 years he comes up again in 2017. I feel that as a teen than and a man whom has improved him self mentally,emotionally,and remorsefully and a man who has taken all steps requested to take to show he is a changed man and a hard working man whom knows how to manage once granted a release date that he has changed. So ask that this is signed and looked at in farness for some inmates thank you Contrena little
My fiance has life with parole. Hes been locked up since he was 19. Hes 37 now. I just hope he gets a chance to get out to be with me and his kids.
First, thank you for taking your time for this.

Life sentence for young adults with no previous record in his or her record needs to be reconsidered. Instead consider sending them through rehabilitation and a life community services with tracking progress through parole officer and put a GPS tracking on them and of course all these services are paid by the person sentenced to life.

Hi my fiance is a lifer with the possibility of parole. He has been in prison since 1998 at the age of 17 he was raken to prison.He has completed all the classes required for him to take,he has also qorked for the warden, he has done detail and he has been a real good inmate. He comes up for parole in 2017 he speaks highly about how remorseful he is for the crime he was found guilty of and he also has changed a lot over the years. You have so many people being denied paeole and they have done everything required to do plus more have been on good behavior as well and yet they dont come up for parole . I pray unto those reading this that he is granted a far chance and another chance in society for he was a teen and now he has grown,had a chance to reevaluate himself and more.thank you for reading.
