Re: Anthony Chavez
Dear Clemency Board:
Please accept this letter as a petition from a few Chavez family members. We are asking that Anthony’s sentence be shorten or be considered for early release. We all share the same feelings regarding our cousin Anthony and we all agreed on submitting this request. We understand that the board reviews numerous requests and we hope that you consider ours as a valuable piece of information in making a decision regarding Anthony’s sentence.
Anthony was 25 years old when he was sentenced for 24 years for this awful and sad incident. Both the victim’s family and ours lost a loved one. Prior to that sad day Anthony had never been in any trouble and he was a law abiding citizen. He held a full time job with the IRS and always spent time with his family. He is remorseful and regrets what he did and wishes he could turn back time. Since he has been incarcerated Anthony has been on good behavior and has used his time wisely. He has completed various programs such as dog training and Scared Straight. He has also worked hard on becoming a baker. Anthony is doing everything possible to educate himself and prove to society that he has changed and is ready for a second chance.
He has served almost 10 years and we all miss him dearly, especially his mom and dad. Anthony is still young enough to start over and make a difference. We know that if he is given a second chance he would not waste it and would forever be grateful. He would work hard to get his life in order and contribute back to society. Plus, he has a loving family that he could count on. His mom and dad would help and guide him in the right direction. We hope that you review his case and consider a shorter sentence or early release. Thank you for your time.
The Friends and Family of Anthony
