To the Sentencing Judge:

I am writing to plead for your leniency when sentencing {Convict Name}, who is my {relationship to convict}.

I have known {Convict Name} for {length of time}, and I can assure you that these recent circumstances are indicative of the kind of person {he/she} is. {Convict Name} made a terrible mistake, for which {he/she} is tremendously sorry, and I can only hope that will heavily on your mind when you make your decision.

{Convict Name} has been working to make amends for {his/her} infractions, which is evident by{ways in which convict is attempting to make amends}. {He/she} is deeply remorseful, and only wants to do what {he/she} can to at least try to make things better for everyone involved.

{Convict Name} is a {mother/father}, and {his/her} children need {him/her} to be a part of their lives. So I ask that you please use your best judgment, but make it possible that {Convict Name} can return to {his/her} family as soon as possible.

Thank you for your time.
