Yes, one session, she is pulling out her hair, all of our family is on the edge. they dated for a month 6 years ago when they were 16 now they are 21 and he was in prison all this time and he used to try and call collect from prison and we would just hang up, he found her at her job because she just recently went back after working there six years ago and thats where he found her....stalked her for a week and then said ok to his constant asking of going out. he attacked her after her friend has left and took her keys smashed her head into her car windows and strangled her to the point of unconscieness. We have pictures from the police dept and he totalled her car...its just a mess that they offered him one year and probabtion and treatmen...

hi

 

thank you for that information

 

Dear

 

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.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

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

Hi Samuel: That is a good statement, But, can we mention what he did to her in the statement or is that wrong to do in front of the judge since he already knows what happened?
Customer reply replied 9 years ago
We all are suffering in this whole process. I cannot sleep at all since this has happened and my ypounger children are terrified.
Criminal Lawyer: Samuel II, Attorney at Law replied 9 years ago

hi

 

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.

 

 

good luck

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
