Keep NJ Safe: Deny Righetti's Parole

2,753 Signatures Goal: 5,000

On August 31, 1976, 20-year-old New Milford resident Kim Montelaro was forcibly abducted, raped and brutally murdered by repeat offender, Christopher Righetti, Prisoner # 59431. He was sentenced to Life in prison, but due to a legal technicality, he is once again eligible for parole on June 21, 2012—less than 3 years after his last parole hearing. This new date represents the 5th time in 21 years that Righetti has been eligible for parole, despite the court sentencing him to serve life in prison, despite his repeated unwillingness to take responsibility for abducting, assaulting and murdering Kim Montelaro, and despite the fact that he has never shown any remorse for his crime. Kim’s family should not be made to relive this horrible crime every few years when there is a parole hearing. The Montelaro Family continues to suffer unnecessarily on Christopher Righetti’s account, and are re-victimized every time he is eligible for parole. Righetti poses a serious danger to the community, and must not be released. We, the undersigned, urge the New Jersey Parole Board to deny Christopher Righetti's request for parole, and force him to serve out the full remainder of his life sentence. If he is given a future parole date, we urge the Parole Board to use its discretionary power to set that date for at least 35 years from now, maximizing the chance that he will remain in prison for the rest of his life and will never again pose a threat to society. PLEASE DENY CHRISTOPHER RIGHETTI'S PAROLE REQUEST!

    Do not let this man out. Are you seriously considering this? prisons are made to protect society. 30 years doesn't compensate for what he took from this beautiful girl. He took away her whole life and dreams. Why are you subjecting this poor family to these repeat parole hearings??? That is cruel. We need to take care of our victims of crime not further harm them. Keep this animal where he is away from innocent people. He gave up his right to be in society when he decided to execute an innocent girl. We need more common sense in the criminal justice system.
