Re: Appleby, Christopher W. TDCJ-ID# 01076183
Dear Board Members,
Please DO NOT grant parole to Christopher W. Appleby. As a concerned citizen, I'm writing to protest the projected parole. On December 24, 1999, while driving his vehicle intoxicated Appleby hit the truck being driven by June Menard and her husband Tom at nearly 100 mph. Mrs. Menard was pronounced dead at the scene and her husband Tom was taken to via life flight to a near by hospital.
In July of 2001, for his crime Appleby was sentenced to 10 years for the intoxicated manslaughter of June Hayes Menard. For the Menard family Christmas time is not the same any more, what used to be a joyous occasion is now the anniversary of sorrow. On December 24, 1999 Appleby sentenced the family and friends of June Menard to life without their loved one and family member. Justice demands that Appleby be made to serve his complete sentence.
In addition, to lessen the trauma for the victim, please consider a five year set-off before future parole reviews.
Thank you for your consideration.
