    I would like to say I really hope that you would Listen to the Statesville Debate team. I believe everyone deserves a second chance. I don’t believe they should be in jail there whole lifes. People change and are remorseful. Please Please listen to some of the inmates at the men and womans facilities. Bring back the new parole system it shouldn’t of been taken away in the first place. It needs
    a lot of work but I’m sure with the right people it could be done.

    I’m writing this note to ask is there any way to grant my cousin his freedom. He had an appeal and received a sentence of 27 years which is extreme. This sentence was too severe for young man with a bright future ahead of him. I don’t think someone like him should be in jail there whole lives.

    Thank you for your time.

      We are not a legal or service organization, so we cannot assist with individual cases. But we are mobilizing families to fight for a fair and inclusive parole system, so that people like your cousin who are over-incarcerated can have a fair chance at regaining their freedom. If you want to participate, you can sign our support form or other forms, which can be found under the “campaign” tab on the menu of our homepage.
