California Governor

Please Urge Governor Brown to allow the Release of Karen Narita on Parole

    1. Petition by

      California Coalition for Women Prisoners and Justice Now

Ms. Karen Narita has been in prison for more than 26 years for a murder committed by her abusive husband.  She takes full responsibility for participation in the crime and feels tremendous remorse about the victim’s tragic death.  Ms. Narita is now a 48-year-old mother and grandmother who poses no risk of future harm if she is released. 

Ms. Narita has been found eligible for parole by the California Board of Parole Hearings. This is the second time that the Board has found that she poses no risk to public safety - she was previously found suitable for parole in 2004.

The parole decision now goes to Governor Brown.  Please urge the governor to uphold Ms. Narita's parole.  Thank you.

      I was incarcerated for 17 years. I know Karen personally and I know that she takes responsibility for her part in this. I was given a second chance for similar circumstances. I have worked hard to reintegrate into society and be a positive force in my community. I believe Karen will do the same. Please allow her to come home.

      Karen is my sister-in-law, and when the occurred, she was the young mother of a young child; her second child was born shortly after she was arrested.

      Her husband committed suicide in jail, and Karen has been made to pay the price for the crime he committed. It's time for this injustice to be corrected.
