In 1976, Jerry Lee Jones, along with two other accomplices, took the life of twenty-one year old college student Quenette Shehane. Jones was twice convicted of capital murder and senteneced to die in the electric chair, but those convictions were overturned on appeal. In his third trial he was convicted in March of 1982 of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison, which allows him to be considered for parole. Quenette Shehane is the daughter of Miriam Shehane, a founder of VOCAL, Victims of Crime & Leniency. Mrs. Shehane has devoted her life to helping other crime victims since her daughter was brutally taken from her family. Please voice your outrage against the consideration of parole for Jerry Lee Jones. Speak for Quenette and the Shehane family and keep this murderer behind bars.


VOCAL, Victims of Crime & Leniency, is a non-profit advocacy group supporting the rights of crime victims. Established in 1982 by a group of victims and concerned citizens VOCAL has been instrumental in changing the face of justice for crime victims in Alabama.
