Target: Secretary Gregg Marcantel, Corrections Department of New Mexico
Goal: Revoke the early release of Stephanie Lopez, a mother who allowed her newborn to endure fatal abuse.
Stephanie Lopez was imprisoned after the death of her newborn daughter just five months following her birth. Upon conducting an autopsy, it was discovered that the baby had endured prolonged abuse and it was concluded that the varied severity of bruising indicated no resting period between incidents of abuse.
Stephanie was found guilty of negligently permitting child abuse that resulted in the death of a child and was sentenced to the maximum sentence for child abuse, which was 27 years at the time. Since she has been displaying “good behavior,” she is eligible for early release with only half of her original sentence served.
This woman put her child through horrific abuse, including rape, biting, pinching, punching, throwing and kicking. Please sign the petition below to demand that the Corrections Department of New Mexico revoke her early release and make her serve a full sentence for assisting in the torture and murder of her daughter.
Dear Secretary Marcantel,
I am writing this letter to you as a desperate attempt to cancel the release of Stephanie Lopez from prison on charges of negligently permitting child abuse. As you know, this deprived person allowed her newborn baby to be abused, raped and tortured in a matter of months. She is currently on track to being a free woman in October 2016.
The amount of cruel treatment this baby was made to go through can not be minimized and trivialized by allowing the extremely early release of an already short-term sentence for her abusive behavior. This woman should, at the very least, serve the full 27 years that was quite sparingly prescribed at sentencing.
Please do not let Brianna’s death go unnoticed and unjustified. A newborn’s life is undoubtedly the complete responsibility of their parents, and poor Brianna never stood a chance with these sadistic individuals as her parents. Please revoke Stephanie Lopez’s early release and make her serve a full sentence.
[Your Name Here]
