    There a post that is rought copy of what you should write I have to do it myself. Here what the example of it
    Posted via Mobile DeviceTHIS IS HOW I WOULD DO IT!

    Others please provide examples of how you would do it.


    Letters should be in the inmate’s hands one month before the hearing. The letters should be typed if at all possible. Use this as an example. Don’t copy it word for word. Write it in your own words. After the hearing send a Thank You note to each sender telling him/her the outcome. If it is no parole, ask that you can make a request for a new letter when the time comes.


    Each letter should


    be dated;

    should have the sender’s address/or phone number.

    have the inmate's full name and DOC number;


    Dear Sir or Madam:


    introduce the sender

    - who the sender is, example: how long at the same job or residence, type of work (show sender is a stable citizen)

    - how he/she knows the inmate

    - how long he/she has known the inmate


    recommend the inmate be paroled wit an explanation:

    - I recommend John Doe be paroled. I believe he has made mistakes in the past, however, I believe he will do his best to follow the law if released. He has told me of his work in the facility kitchen and the AA program he has participated in. I feel these experiences will help him to cope upon his release.


    Describe the support the sender can provide:

    - I can only provide moral support an encouragement.

    - I can provide rides to work and AA meetings.

    - I can provide a stable home for John Doe while he is on parole.


    Thank Parole Board

    - Thank you for reading my letter and considering John Doe for parole.

    - Your consideration in reading this letter is appreciated.

    - Please consider my comments in your decisions to parole John Doe.


    - Please feel free to contact me if I can be of any further assistance in this matter.


    Sincerely, or Thank you,


    Your name and Signature

    Ok so I have been working with an Attorney, who use to be on the Parole Board. They love getting letters from the offender's support system. And they like to see that the inmate has stayed out of trouble for a atleast a year! Also see if you can attend the hearing! I wish I knew what I knew now a year ago my baby couldve been home but everything happens for a reason goodluck with your letter and the parole hearing!
