What is the conviction for?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Hello

Thank you. I suggest, you can use the letter below and as you deem appropriate make changes or add to it, for instance if you do community work, or go to church - you should add those things in the letter. Remember, this letter needs to be short and concise because Judge's don't have time to read a lot. So, it is best to say you are sorry and ask for mercy on the sentence.


The Honorable (whatever the Judge's name is)

Your Honor

I am humbly before this court because I have been found guilty of the crimes of fraud and ID theft.

As you know, I am disabled. I also have a family who I love and they love me in return. Your Honor, I know I have done wrong. I know that I deserve to be penalized for my crime. However, I am requesting that you will have mercy and impose the lightest sentence you can. I have never been in criminal trouble before and, Your Honor, I will never be again.

This has been a very embarassing time for me and my family. I am so sorry that I have done these things. I don't know what got into me or what I was thinking. I am so sorry to the victims in this matter

Your Honor, I am humbly requesting that you have mercy on me when imposing my sentence.

Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter

Hello

I am sorry to hear of your medical condition. Thank you for that information.

I suggest then that you add this into the letter as I have below

The Honorable (whatever the Judge's name is)

Your Honor

I am humbly before this court because I have been found guilty of the crimes of fraud and ID theft.

As you know, I am disabled. In (whatever year it was) I was unfortunate enough to have suffered a devastating illness in which I had to have a kidney and pancreas transplant. Your Honor, I am also enclosing copies of that medical documentation for your consideration.

I also have a family who I love and they love me in return. Your Honor, I know I have done wrong. I know that I deserve to be penalized for my crime. However, I am requesting that you will have mercy and impose the lightest sentence you can. I have never been in criminal trouble before and, Your Honor, I will never be again.

This has been a very embarrassing time for me and my family. I am so sorry that I have done these things. I don't know what got into me or what I was thinking. I am so sorry to the victims in this matter

Your Honor, I am humbly requesting that you have mercy on me when imposing my sentence.

Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter
