Life Sentence Review Letter Submissions
Per MN Statute 244.05 Subd. 9(b):
A member of the public may submit a written statement at the review hearing. Nothing in this subdivision may be interpreted to circumvent or limit the rights of the victim, the victim’s family, the inmate, or the criminal justice community specified elsewhere in law to notice of the hearing or the right to participate in it.
Community members may submit letters of support or opposition regarding offenders who are up for a life sentence review. You may submit an electronic letter via email to:
Executive Officer of Hearings and Release
Your letter will be shared with the Commissioner of Corrections and the Advisory Panel, but not with the offender unless you request otherwise.
