Overturn Controversial Commuted Sentence of Convicted Killer

Supreme_court_ofcalifornia_by_Coolcaesar

Target: California Governor Jerry Brown

Goal: Reverse the commuted sentence of a convicted killer who only served six years for manslaughter.

Despite being found guilty in the stabbing death of a college student, a California criminal has been released after serving less than six years in prison. Esteban Nunez is now a free man after his manslaughter sentence was heavily reduced by then-Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Making the issue controversial is the fact that Nunez is the son of Fabian Nunez, who was a key friend and political ally to Schwarzenegger when he was in office.

This is a clear example of political cronyism and backroom dealing. In Schwarzenegger’s own admission, his decision to lessen the sentence was an attempt to help a friend. This is simply unacceptable. America is a country founded on rule of law; Esteban Nunez should not walk free because he has powerful family and friends. Sign the petition below and urge California’s governor to overturn this commuted sentence.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Governor Brown,

I am writing to express my extreme displeasure with the recent release of convicted killer Esteban Nunez. Despite being found guilty in the stabbing death of a college student, Nunez is now a free man after serving less than six years. The reason for his release? Nunez is the son of Fabian Nunez, who was a key friend and political ally to former governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who reduced the sentence.

America is a country founded on rule of law; a man should not walk free simply because he has powerful family and friends. Esteban Nunez is a killer, and to release him is an insult to the memory of the life he wrongfully took. I urge you to intervene and cancel this commutation.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
