Hi Fritz,

I suggest you Google "judge letter son" without the quotes and look for a letter.

Your format should be something like....

Your name


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

Yours truly,

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.
