Peter is in the 29th year of a Life 25 sentence. He completed his correctional plan in 1998, and has participated in many positive and pro-social activities while inside. With the ongoing support of friends and family, and through almost 4 years of one-on-one counseling while in Bath, he has gained great insight and awareness into the experiences in his childhood that contributed to the choices he made. He is thoughtful and self-reflective and devotes much of his time to helping others, including donating his artwork to social justice causes to be used as fundraising tools.
Peter is deportable, and as such has created a comprehensive release plan in England, and has the support of family, friends and community agencies. He has been classified as a low risk to re-offend, and has done everything his Case Management Team has asked of him to prepare for parole.
There is no legitimate reason, related to rehabilitation, release planning or community safety, for CSC to hold Peter in prison any longer. Peter is suffering from the effects of long-term incarceration, and we are concerned for his well-being. We are asking for your support in helping him to get full parole for deportation to England.
