Skip to comments.Parole hearings again. Freeper help requested to keep a rapist in prison (update at post 177)

It was suggested that I should post this in the public forum instead of keeping it in Freepmail.
The monster who raped me is coming before the board of parole again. Every 3 years.
I ask that anyone who may have a reason to want him to stay behind bars, please consider writing the board (by email) expressing their thoughts about his release. He is a 5-time felon. The attack happened in Texas, the day before Thanksgiving, 1990. He broke 6 locks on my front door.
When he was raping me, he made it clear to me that I would not be his last victim. He told me that if I helped prosecute him, he would kill me when he was released. He also assured me that he would never again leave a witness. He told me he would kill next time because he wouldn't allow himself to be put back in prison.
I am blessed that I wasn't killed. I thank God every day for that blessing.
He is a five-time felon. Each one of his crimes was progressively worse than the one before. His attack on me was brutal. During the attack, he took every opportunity to make me feel inferior. He justified his attack by claiming I deserved it because of the way I dressed.
It's been 22 years since he attacked me, yet it feels like it was yesterday. I will always feel fear; I will always worry about my own children being attacked. I will always worry that he is around the corner waiting to kill me. I will always feel the need to watch over my shoulder. Please help me convince the board to not release him. Please help me convince them to make him serve his life sentence. Please help me keep them from releasing another sexual predator on the innocent.
Before they caught him, he ran to Florida to escape. I believe no state is safe from this monster.
I take it that Mr. Lafavre is an idiot.
Praying hard. May God protect the right and the innocent.
I’m encouraged that he bothered to call.
It’s going to be OK!
Prayers that he never gets out. Besides, Lubbock is too close to where I live for comfort! I too wonder how he got engaged while in prison and not supposed to be communicating with the outside world. She will regret it for sure!
He had to...it’s my right as “victim” to request a voice in the process...they have to call and get my statement. I choose to give my statement by phone instead of letter as one of the board hears my voice and the pain in my tone.
Is that the way it works in Texas? Do you know if there are any liberals on the Parole Board?
I don’t know...I know this guy saying it’s time to decide if they are going to foot the bills for him forever or let him go and watch him through his parole officer...that truly scares me.
Just sent to your PM box. Thank you Randy
I continue to pray for you T! Have faith, even when the world seems crazy around you, you will see justice in this. God Bless you!
Thanks for letting us know.
((((Hugs)))Just got to read this.I will pray a rosary on the way home today.

Just catching up on FR after a few days off-line. I’m praying for you & for the parole board - may the Good Lord give them what seems so uncommon these days: common sense!
Update...got an email this morning from the automatic system ... I believe it’s called VIBE. Here is the important part of that message:
On 8/31/2012, the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles denied parole for this offender and set the next review for 8/1/2015. You will be notified when the case is placed in the review process, approximately four months prior to the next review date.
Praise God. What a relief!
