Third Time is a Charm
Rico, who is serving a sentence of 15 years to life for second degree murder, was granted parole by the Board of Prison Terms twice on June 28, 1991, and May 15, 2002. However, previous Governors Pete Wilson and Gray Davis rejected his parole due to their "no parole policy" respectively. (I was rejected once by Governor Gray Davis when I was granted parole on September 16, 1998.)
Similar to my situation, Rico is a model prisoner who has rehabilitated himself through self-determination. He has consistently accepted responsibility for his actions and expressed remorse for this victims. He has strong family and community support. He has realistic parole plans. Most importantly, he is a compassionate, generous, and peaceful man who dedicates his life to service the greater society. I'm privileged to consider him a friend and a brother.
For those who know Rico, please keep calling the Governor's office to express your support for his parole. For those who don't know Rico, but want to show your support, please call the Governor's office at 916-445-2841. Re: Romirico Remeidio C-29667.
Let's hope the third time is a charm for Rico.
