In 2001, I was attacked in downtown Memphis while unloading groceries from my car. My attacker, Steve Bland, stabbed me 3 times and tried to force me into the car. Thankfully, I was able to get away. Within weeks of my attack, the Memphis Police Department apprehended my attacker and he was convicted. He received a 17.5 year sentence for his crimes. Each year, Mr. Bland becomes eligible for parole and each year I petition his parole not be granted. On May 30, 2012, the Parole Board will hold his fifth parole hearing to discuss if he is deserving of parole. One of the many opportunities available to me as the victim is to send a petition with the signature of others who are in agreement with me that Mr. Bland should not be granted parole. Steve Bland is a career criminal and deserves to serve all of his 17.5 years sentence.

Here is a small list of his prior convictions (And this isn't all of them!):
Burglary III                   5-11-87
Felony Escape               5-11-87

Steve Bland's next crime was the one in which I was victimized
Aggravated Robbery       8-13-01
Aggravated Assault         8-13-01

You will notice that he was convicted of another crime after he was convicted of attacking me.  Before the police caught him, he robbed another woman.

Please help keep Steve Bland, #0013181, in jail! Take a moment to sign this petition to deny the granting of parole to the man who so violently attacked me - Steve Bland. Thank you so much for your help!  Let's keep him in jail.


My name is Elizabeth Montgomery and I am sponsoring this petition against the parole of Steve Bland. Mr. Bland violently attacked me and has been convicted of his crimes. Every victim has the right to petition the Parole Board to deny his parole and each year I present a petition against his parole. Know this petition will be presented to the Parole Board for consideration during his hearing and it will make a difference.
