Skip to comments.Parole hearings again. Freeper help requested to keep a rapist in prison (update at post 177)
Posted on 06/17/2012 1:06:42 PM PDT by trussell
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.
Hopefully the guy will drop dead or meet with unfortunate deadly circumstances before his next appearance.
I know how relieved you must be!
Great news !
It’s truly incredible (and not in a good way) that this monster would even be considered for parole only a quarter of the way through his sentence. IMO the only way he should leave prison alive is to enter a hospice because he has terminal cancer - and therefore would be too far gone to represent a threat to anyone. That’s it. He is EXACTLY the kind of thug for which three strikes laws were created.
That’s good news :-)
The downside to my relief is in knowing I have to do this again in 3 years. Otherwise...yes, I am very relieved!
I’ve been told that the 3 strikes rule has been abondoned...I hope I heard wrong!
It was exactly 1/4 of a life sentence that he HAD to serve before being eligible to have parole hearings...I proved he used a weapon against me and that I was in fear of dying, so that was a condition of his sentence. 60 years is considered a life sentence in Texas.
I’m very glad to hear this news, tr! I’m just sorry you’ll have to go through it again in 3 years.
It was exactly 1/4 of a life sentence that he HAD to serve before being eligible to have parole hearings.
For violent offenses, it should be a much higher percentage. Because with violent offenders, prison isn't just punishment, it is protection for society as well. The jury sent a clear message. The state should not have laws or guidelines that undermine such a message.
So every three years ?
Sorry ya have to put up with such T ......
Glad this POS is going to stay locked up for now.
Stay safe !
Thank you my FRiend. Unfortunately, they said it had to be every three years. I know they could do a serve all...but the one I talked to seemed to be very concerned with the financial aspect of keeping him in prison for much longer.
Violent thugs like that are exactly why we have prisons in the first place. If they had done a better job keeping him in there, this might not have ever happened to you in the first place.
I hope this gives you some peace of mind!
Remind us in 2015 and I’ll be happy to write another letter, as many as necessary to keep this monster or any other like him behind bars.
All the Best to You.
:)Thank You Lord.
Then we start writing polidiots NOW to keep his butt locked away for rest of his life.
I hear rumor he’s a snitch and sells out the cartels insiders ......:o)
Let’s hope he never gets out.
Praise God and THANK YOU God for this round!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please keep us Freepers informed when the next round comes near. So happy for you!
To all that prayed for trussell and wrote letters, THANK YOU!
For us all:
Great news T!!! I know it must be exhausting to keep fighting his parole every few years, but you’ve won this round! Congrats!!
Thank you for the update. Very happy to hear that parol was denied.
