My name is Floriza Martinez, the mother of Christine Jacqueline Kalifa, a murder victim.  I am writing to you to strongly oppose the parole of inmate Ivan Arratia Zambrano, State ID # 07631100, TDCJ # 01843925.  He was an accomplice to the murder of my daughter, Christine.  On the early morning of April 17, 2012 she was shot in the back of the head and left on the side of a dark rural road.  Zambrano was charged with Tamper/Fabricate Physical Evidence with Intent to Imper (CR-2653-12-D), a third degree felony, 37.09(d)(1) Penal Code, 2-10 years in Prison/Max $10,000 fine.  The Prosecutors agreed to a plea bargain in the case in which the punishment imposed was 4 years imprisonment.  There was no fine and no restitution.  The offender was out on bail while the case was in the legal process, he committed another offense, Unlawful Possession of Firearm by Felon, November 8, 2012, (CR-4509-12-D) third degree felony 46.04(a) Penal Code, 2-10 years in prison/max $10,000.  Again there was a plea bargain in the case, the punishment imposed was 4 years to run concurrent with the previous sentence.  

This felon is an illegal drug user, alcohol abuser and a member of a gang, LOCO 13.  He is a habitual offender who has been given many chances and has not taken the opportunities to better himself.  

This felon's reckless behavior caused the murder of a young women, 23, my daughter, Christine Jacqueline Kalifa, to death and he sentenced our family and friends to a living death.  Her 3 children, ages at the time of her death 6 months, 2 years, and 6 years, whom now have to grow up without their mother.  He is a great danger to society and has proven himself to be a threat.

We are asking that any and all of the resources your office has is used to keep this inmate incarcerated for as long as his sentence dictates.  

We appreciate that we live in a state where we have the opportunity to voice our protest to the Texas Board of Pardons and Parole when it comes to the safety our society.  Thank you for your consideration that parole be denied for felon, Ivan Arratia Zambrano, TDJC # 01843925.
