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!

    I pray that this evil man will spend his entire natural life in prison until he takes his last breath. He will then face almighty God who will judge him for this horrible crime that he has committed. I believe that he will wish that he had never been born.
