The following persons and organizations hereby respectfully request that Gov. David Paterson exercise his executive authority under the New York State Constitution and the New York
Executive Law to unconditionally and fully pardon John White, a person of African
ancestry, for convictions of manslaughter in the second degree and criminal
possession of a weapon in the third degree on December 22, 2007 in Suffolk
County Court for the death of Daniel Cicciaro, a member of a white mob who
trespassed on White’s residence threatening to rape his wife and to kill him
and his family.
John White and his family have already suffered exorbitant and irreversible trial and appellate costs in addition to immeasurable pain and suffering. No appellate action can undo the harm of these wrongful convictions.
