of the judge for sentencing to morrow,i want to ask the judge to be lenient since the charge
was not a crime
I suggest you Google "judge letter son" without the quotes and look for a letter.
Your format should be something like....
Your Honor ***
Position (Judge of whatever court)
Dear Judge ***:
1st Para--Introduce yourself and state your purpose
2nd Para--Provide support for your desire for a lenient sentence...use a few paragraphs if needed.
Last Para--Thank the Judge for his counsel and consideration
Your letter should be short, concise, on-target. The longer it is, the less likely the judge is to read the entire letter carefully. If it were me, I'd try to keep it to 3 pages or less.
If you like, you can read [url="http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/0716043martha1.html "]Martha Stewart's letter[/url] to the judge.
Above all, be respectful and polite. Don't blame everyone else. Show contrition for whatever harm you son may have caused.
I hope this helps you.
