New Factor In Gilbert R. Lawrence Case sign now

This is an addition to the Help Free Gilbert R. Lawrence. We found out more information to try and help Gilberts case. It is a letter from our old Governor Tommy Thompson to the old Department of Corrections Secretary Michael Sullivan. This is what the letter states.


Dear Secretary Sullivan.


I write to you today regarding the administration of Wisconsins mandatory release law.


I recently proposed and subsequently signed into law a bill to end mandatory parole for violent offenders in Wisconsin. In enacting that important change, legal counsel advised that any retroactive change would be unconstitional.


Therefore, althoughI have ended mandatory parole for violent offenders, there are some inmates already in prison who are still governed by the old release law.


I believe that mandatory release of violent criminals is wrong. That is why I called a Special Session of the legislature in 1987 to pass life means life sentencing bill and that is why I moved to end mandatory parole for violent offenders this year.


In order to implement this policy as fully as possible I hereby direct the Department of Corrections to pursue any and all legal avenues to block the release of violent offenders who have reached there mandatory release date.


This policy of the administration is to keep violent offenders in prison as long as possible under the law.


This letter I have with me and if the judge who sentenced Gilbert to the 35 years in prison would of known about this Gilbert would not of gotten the time length that he did. We are trying to bring this back into court and this is one of the new developements in his case. SO I am looking for support from all to help with this and it is unconstitutional of them to try and hide this from inmates. But the inmates somehow got ahold of a copy of the letter.
