Gov. Patterson pardon John White

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.

Sadly enough, there are no winners in a case like the one in which Mr. White was involved. While the death of any young man is senseless, sending Mr. White to prison for protecting his family and home would make this a more tragic situation. I hope you could find it in your heart and concience to pardon Mr. John White. Thank you, Sergio Argueta
