Give Lifers With Possibility Of Parole Their Release Dates

3,096 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.

In 1990, My son Larry barbine Jr. Was sentenced to life in Georgia for murder at the age of 15. He has been denied parole six times in spite of good institutional conduct, voluntary participation in various programs, attendance at ga. Military college on a ga. Pell grant, several trades from technical colleges in ga.,and most importantly, he has a very large family support system that coupled with his own efforts will ensure he becomes a productive member of society. It's quite obvious that my son is not the same person he was when he committed this crime, a child. The Georgia pardons and parole board are dropping the ball in a lot of areas. Thank you for your time.
