In July of 1991, my father was murdered. The man who was responsible for the murder was sentenced to life in prison with a chance of parole in 15 years. 15 years later in February of 2007, I had to go up to a parole board and present a victim impact statement to them. The following video is the statement I read with pictures and video of my childhood. This has been a piece I have always wanted to work on and I am proud of what I have created. Life is so important, make the best out of it, and tell the people you care about how much you love them.
The case link:
In July of 1991, an Essex County grand jury charged the petitioner, Kevin Wood, with the murder of George Aulson and the commission of related crimes. The charges arose from an altercation that occurred between the two men late at night on July 7, 1991, in Peabody, Massachusetts. While Wood acknowledged stabbing Aulson, he insisted that Aulson had instigated the brawl and that the killing was an act of self-defense. Pertinently, the police had raided Aulson's home on the day before the stabbing, and Wood claimed that Aulson bore him ill will because he (Aulson) believed that Wood had informed the authorities that Aulson was cultivating marijuana on his property.
