Target: Massachusetts Parole Board
Demand: Do not grant parole to child rapist and killer.
In 1997, 10-year-old Jeffrey Curley was kidnapped from his home in Somerville, Massachusetts. He was smothered with gasoline and murdered, raped, and his body was stuffed into a plastic container and thrown into a river.
The man who did this, Charles Jaynes, is now eligible for parole.
A man who raped and murdered an innocent child has no place in society. If he is let out, all children in Massachusetts, and elsewhere, will be put in danger. His release will also send a dangerous message that raping and murdering a child does not warrant a life behind bars.
Dear Massachusetts Parole Board,
Recent reports indicate that Charles Jaynes, the man who was convicted of raping and murdering 10-year-old Jeffrey Curley in 1997, is eligible for parole. This is a scary prospect for the people of Massachusetts and the United States as a whole.
A person found guilty of raping and murdering an innocent child deserves nothing less than life behind bars. By allowing Jaynes to get parole, you are showing that these crimes will not be punished to the fullest extent.
We the undersigned urge you to prevent Charles Jaynes from being released from prison on parole in order to keep our communities safe and to show that Massachusetts will not tolerate those who kill and abuse children.
