Thank you. First of all, please do not do anything without coordinating with the Assistant District Attorney who is handling your case. This is because many Judges simply will not entertain letters sent by non-parties in the matter.
Assuming that you have the ADA confirm that the Court will entertain the letter, or have the ADA introduce it on your behalf, it would be something along the lines of:To the Honorable Court:
My name is ___. I am submitting my opinion to this Court and asking that Defendant (name) in the case (cause number, title of case) receive a sentence that fits his criminal activities. I am afraid that the Court is not aware of all that had transpired.
The Defendant has violated the restraining order in the following way:
(and so one)
I feel that if the Defendant is not imprisoned, then he would violate the restraining order again, and harm me and/or my family. I humbly request that the Court admonish the Defendant severely for his actions and simultaneously not have him be a plight unto the community in general, and myself and my family, specifically.
This is just a sample. Keep it short, and to the point. The Judge will get the message that you are trying to relay.
