Are you writing a letter as a character witness, or as a sponsor, or...? I am a grammarian, not a legal expert, and there may be some items that you are required to include.

It would be a good idea if you could give us a first draft of a letter which includes the basic things you want to say, and then we can correct it for you.
Dear Guest,

I tried writing this message last night but I had difficulty accessing this site. Thus my message contains some overlapping themes from Mister Macawber's note.

I suspect that writing a parole support letter is an involved process. You must understand--in-depth--the convict, his crimes, the impact upon the victims and society, and other associated factors.

To simply ask in this forum for help writing a parole letter without having given this topic a lot of thought and consideration is asking too much. For us to draw out all the salient details and craft a well-written letter would take many hours. As MM suggested, you can write a draft letter and someone will assist with the grammar portion of it.

If I were you, I'd simply google "parole board letter" (without the quotes) to see what you can find on the Internet to help get you started. Here is one link called [url="http://www.txcure.org/parole1.htm"]Parole Support Letters[/url] that might help get you started.

If you do post a letter here in this forum to be reviewed, please use a fake name for the convict (John Doe) and use a fake name for the prison (Big House). That way, the identity of the individual is protected.

Good luck.

Re: xxxxxxx

Dear Parole Members:

I am writing this letter in support of my brother, xxxxxxxx who is scheduled to appear before the Parole Board in February. I am imploring you to favorably consider his release as I can assure you that after 12 years, he has addressed his past harmful behavior and I am certain that he will do well upon his release.

Erik is 5 years my elder and although our individual temperaments were distinctive in that he was the more assertive, he was always considerate and helpful. I remember Erik in earlier years as being thoughtful and considerate, the one who taught me the alphabet how to tie my shoes and defended me when I was blamed for doing something wrong. Although he dropped out of school, he went to work, moved into his own apartment and seemed to do well for awhile. However, I became aware that he began to associate with an undesirable crowd and was using drugs as he strayed further from family and friends. I was very concerned, but was powerless in my futile attempt to help him. During this time we drifted apart, since his drug use forced him to commit acts against the law to finance his habit and resulted in his inevitable incarcerations.

In the ensuing years, I have spoken to him often on the phone and visited on occasion. However, I have not been able to see him lately as often as I would like, except when on leave, since I am currently on active military duty stationed outside the continental . I am an Officer in the Unites States Navy. Nonetheless, I do speak with my mother regularly, who is able to talk to Erik almost on a daily basis and has kept me updated on Erik’s progress. It is evident from my last visit and subsequent conversations with him that he has matured a great deal. He has learned how his lack of self control and extreme emotional state influenced his resorting to drugs and has vowed that if released, he would in no way resort to drugs. Erik now has a profound commitment to accomplishing his goals and no doubt he will never again be the kind of person who allows his emotions to outweigh his rationale. He has taken his past drug addiction very seriously and for that reason he has contacted several drug rehabilitation programs and has submitted applications for his enrollment in their out-patient programs. He has also participated in numerous programs during his incarceration to improve himself including his recent participation in the ASAT program. He has also sent his resume to numerous potential employers and has received positive responses with promises of future employment. He had a broad work history prior to his incarceration in addition to his marketable skills acquired in prison that will help him to obtain employment.

Erik is now 37 years old and considerably more sensible and wiser than the person who committed these crimes, and for that reason I am asking that you grant him his release as he deserves a second chance. Whatever the time spent and an example made in the past 12 years that his crime mandated, has been fulfilled.
