I received a letter in the mail today from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Inside in big, fat, black letters it said —-
NOTICE OF RELEASE – CONFIDENTIAL
This notice is provided at your request. The inmate is scheduled for release.
The inmate will be:
Released to parole under CDCR supervision.
The inmate is required to register pursuant to:
Penal Code Section 290 – Sex
It also has other information about his name, prison number, scheduled release date and which county he will be released into. What the letter does not tell me is how long his parole lasts. Let’s just say I am happy I am not longer in the same county. And it is not so much that I am afraid of him or that I think he’ll come after me. No, it’s more I simply do not like the idea of him being anywhere near me. Do I think he has been rehabilitated? That would be a resounding NO. Given the violence of my attack, his lack of remorse at the sentencing and the fact that he will have spent almost 62 months in prison, I seriously doubt he will be anything but angry.
I do pray for him and truly hope that no one else ever has to experience what I did on September 24, 2011.
