Don Corley’s parole date is January 31st, 2012. The day has finally arrived where we know when the parole date will be. Less than four weeks away!
Part of me is relieved – I’m glad to know this is nearing the end. I’ll be happy to sleep well at night again, to focus on life’s more trivial things. But the little boy in me has a growing fear. What if he is granted parole and ends his jail sentence with just half his time served? What if the Parole Board doesn’t get our message and lets him out early? What if we don’t succeed in getting a significant amount of letters? What if people care from a distance, but don’t actually send in a letter?
I know that’s my fear talking, but I’m being honest with my feelings. So I ask you one more time. If you haven’t sent in your letter yet, now is the time. If you have done a letter… can you do a petition too? Can you get someone else to send in a letter? 10 minutes of your time and the cost of a stamp can truly make a difference – every signature counts (and you don’t have to be in Alabama!)
Even though the date is January 31st, it’s critical we get everything in the mail by January 21st so the letters and petitions get in his file and are reviewed by the Parole Board.
A Sample Letter & Petition are available below.
