Writing a support letter for an inmate
I know once you meet him you will see exactly what I am talking about. Cordially, Jariel I watched how hard it is for this family to have their loved one incarcerated, children growing up without their father and a wife longing for the partnership and support of her husband. It will be impossible for Inmate to recommit his crime as [personal information]. He quickly developed additional skills in patience, being slow to react, asking instead of expecting, and most notably, being more compassionate and non-judgmental. You should type the letter instead of writing it by hand.
New York State Board of Parole, 97 Central Avenue, U. Stanford, I am writing to you in support of the parole release of John MacKenzie, 76A, NYSID H.
I am familiar with the facts and circumstances of the crime for which John has now served more than forty years. Most specifically, I have reviewed his educational programs and the community-sensitive projects to which he has devoted much of his time and effort. John has used his time in prison constructively and effectively. John has reformed and rehabilitated himself and poses no threat to the outside world.
He has accepted full responsibility for his actions, has reflected on his past mistakes and expressed deep and inmwte remorse for his crime. I believe that John would be a good and productive citizen if he were returned to society.
It is my sincere hope that the Division of Parole will give his parole release forr consideration. Thank you for taking the time to consider my letter.
