Re: (Name & prison ID number of loved-one)
Dear Sir/Madam; (If you know the name of the parole board member use it, if not use sir/madam)
My name is (Your name) and I am writing this letter on behalf of my (husband, son, friend, etc), (name of loved-one and prison I.D. number). This letter is to ask that you vote positively to grant him parole when he appears before the Parole Board, on (date of appearance before parole board).
I understand, and I will never forget, that (love-ones name) was sent to prison for committing crimes that will have lasting negative effects on the lives of many innocent people. I would never disrespect the seriousness of his behavior by offering an excuse to the board members. All I can say is that (name of loved-one) has worked very hard while he has been incarcerated to make himself a better person, deserving of another chance in society.
Should you decide to grant him parole, his family will be there to support, encourage and motivate him through a successful transition and progression into a positive member of society.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
