i can help you - is the letter from you as the parent or from your daughter - can you tell me how this has effected you and your family - is there counseling for your daughter, etc?
thank you for that information
Please know that this crime has affected my daughter and her entire family in the most horrendous way. We tremble at the thought of this monster having been released to the community after a five year incarceration. My daughter, I fear, will never be the same. I know that she needs to view herself more of a survivor than a victim, but this is something that is going to take time.
In the meantime, she suffers, we suffer, the community suffers on a daily basis. (Daughter's name) needs counseling because of this brutal attack by this man. Being the kind and gentle person she is, she agreed to go out with this criminal. It was then that he smashed her head into the car window before strangling her to the point of unconscieness. She is a neverous mess. She cannot eat or sleep. She sits and pulls her hair from her head. Who gave this animal the right to bring this onto my daughter and family? We are sickened by the fact that he will walk away, unscathed with a slap on the wrist sentence while we suffer day in and day out. We have become skeptical of people in general. The system has not given justice to my daughter for this unprovoked attacked.
I ask that you look at the pictures and ask yourself "what if this happened to a member of my family" What justice would you want? What is it going to take to realize there is no help for this man. He is a bad apple. If his last stint in prison did not help and rehabilitate him why would one year and treatment. He is unworthy to walk among our society. I implore you to take our sufferings into account.
let me know, if this is okay - you can add more to it - but you dont want it to drag on and on. concise is best.
i am sorry you and your family has experienced such trauma. hope he gets what he deserves and that you all heal soon
it is fine to mention that he strangled her, etc - keeping the focus on why your lives have been turned upside down and, again when you copy and paste it onto a word document to print out or copy verbatim - you can add that you have younger children who have been terrified by this.
