Petition Closed

Dear President Obama,

In the Matter of: Allen G. Campos III (Grandson) with Asperger's Syndrome.

This is my personal plea for some consideration for my Grandson Allen III. I beg for Justice and a FULL PARDON. He is my world, I need him as MUCH AS I NEED AIR. Allen III helps me in so many ways that his being locked up is going to lesson both of our quality of life greatly. He helps me by cutting my grass, shoveling my snow, helping me to get out of a chair, helps me get up from the floor, gets my shoes on. And so many other things you could could not start to imagine. I have been 100% disabled since 1996 caused by an on the job back injury and Three back surgeries including a double fusion. The DR died from the same infections two months later. I have survived but not with out the help of HEAVY medications.

I have to prepair two days before any court date if I am to attend. Most days I don't leave the house. My Grandson having to go to jail is going to cost us all greatly in our quality of life. Then there are all the family gatherings we will not be able to attend because of a mix grandchildren. That is going to cause many problems over the years. I hope this entire thing to be over asap and, I hope this is not going to follow him the rest of his life. Should he become lucky and find a woman who will except him as he is and he has children, it would be a crying shame if he can never go to their school to pick them up. Or attend any of their school functions, graduations, etc. Please take into consideration he has Aspergers and has been comprimised as a result. I would be more than happy to take him in for the rest of my life. This grandson is the love of my life and we have 26 grandchildren and two great grandchildren. He is by far my favorite and can't live without him.

The problem now is that the Judge did not even read the original Petition BUT, said she was mad about the Petition!!! Also stated she had made up her mind about his Sentencing the first time she had seen him!!! Before she ever read a word about his case!

I repeat myself at the risk of being boring. These charges stem fron an insident dating back to when my Grandson Allen III was 12 years old with Asperger's Syndrome. His second Attornet said that if he were still a DA he would use the interview Video as a teaching tool as to "HOW NOT TO CONDUCT AN INTERVIEW WITH AN ASPERGER'S PERSON!"

Please read the attached letter information about Allen III.

My PLEA is for a Pardon for my Grandson, Please.

Thank you for your time, Please feel free to contact me for any more info about Allen III,

I would like to start with a little about me. My wife and I have been blessed with six children between us, twenty-six grandchildren and two great granddaughters.

Our grandson Allen III was born under some unexpected circumstances, at least not expected by us. He was my instant heart throb and I looked forward to helping to raise him to manhood.

By the time Allen III was three his parents had split and he remained with his mother. It was about this same time he fell off the top bunk bed and split his head on the angle iron of the lower bunk.

It was not but a hand full of years later he was living with his Dad and fell out of a second floor window on his head. Again more head injuries and more staples in his head, I think it added to his problems.

Allen was displaying problems with fitting in with other kids. The school system did not have funding for him in special classes for his early days. Then it was not followed up on for some years as he was bounced between parents. He attended Five Elementry Schools in Five years.

His mother did take him to the Autism Association and was told he was Autistic with a problem called Asperger’s Syndrome. This is a problem present from birth.

Allen III was shunned by his siblings and they went so far as to not ride with him on the school bus or associate with him at school. They did not sit with him for lunch or any other reason. This was promoted by his step-mother Tammy, she did not like the fact Allen III was different from the other kids. And I feel a part of the social worker and Police involvement in Jan 2011. When he was arrested from his special needs class room. Taken in custody and questioned like a normal person would be. You can’t do that to a person with Asperger’s.

He was accused of sexual contact with a minor. He was 12 at the time. This was five years later when he was 17 (he is 18 now)! Just happens there was an ugly divorce going on (Jan 2011) at the time. His step mother had the other kids calling him “IT” and not Allen.

Allen III has also been the target of bullying for years. Three times in the last year he has been beaten, last time to unconsciousness. The school VP found him out cold in the boys’ room in a pool of blood. Third concussion and staples in his head over that years’ time.

Allen has been with me many times and weeks at a time at our place in northern WI. I had to teach him to count using dice and a deck of playing cards. One on one Allen is great and focused; alone he is lost and scared.

Allen III has performed many community events with me for Public TV to events for the WI DNR for years. Two Hundred Ninty-Six hours last year alone.

He can follow directions one at a time but falls down when given
two or three tasks at once. Since he turned eighteen he thinks he has all the freedom in the world. But we all know it is a learning thing to know boundaries in life. He is only eighteen in physical stature not in mental capacity

This is what has contributed to an encounter with his sister at age twelve. His mental capacity was much less than hers, putting him on a more level playing field of his sister of eight years old. She is far advanced for her age and found out early what men want. As my grandson told me it was a game of dare. She dared him to drop his pants and he did. She did the Fellatio, that was the only activity and NO penetration was ever attempted. She and her older sister were the one to do the activities’ not him.

The Judge did not take the advise of TWO Phycatrists, the DA, our Attorney, and many family members who all said he will not make it in Jail. He becomes a target as soon as they see he is a problemed young man.

Allen III is now facing time in Jail, sex offender classes and six years probation. Plus he will be labeled for life as an ADULT sex offender. His sister told a school social worker about this in Jan 2011 when Allen was seventeen. The Brookfield PD came into his class special needs class room and cuffed him, took him to Brookfield PD and questioned him for a long time. He again was scared out of his wits. He had never been in trouble before. This has been hanging over his head since.

His attorney charged me $10,000 to help my grandson in this case but, it got to a point that he said just plead guilty because I want another $10,000 to take it to a jury trial. He plead guilty by advice of his attorney. He is sitting in jail in Waukesha County (Home of Scott Walker favorable court decisions) at age eighteen more scared out of his wits than ever. He just started on anti-depression medications over all this going on. Allen is very confused because he does not understand what is happening to him or why. He just graduated Hs June 9th, no job, no money.

 As it was I took from our retirement funds. My wife is about to retire at 67 and there is no more money to give. We will be in the bread lines, if there are still any around. I feel if in fact he was tried by a jury of his piers they would have to have something to do with Autism or they could never understand his disability.

I did find a new attorney I had to made payment of another $15,000.00. I feel like he is going to be our best shot since he has a son with Asperger’s too. Nothing working very well or favorabley.

Sorry for bending your ear but I felt you needed to get as much information as I could give about my Grandson Allen III. If there is anything you can do or advise me on please do. I cannot lose my name sake grandson because he has problems inside his head. He needs mental help not jail time with hard criminals. He has been locked up the last three months, he has lost over 25 pounds. Allen III was only about 140 pounds at 5'8" to start with. He was thin, now he is nothing but skin and bone. He can not handle the stress with his Asperger's, it will not allow him the tools needed to overcome it. The judge would not release him into my custody but put him in Huber (work release) jail. He will never survive prison; it would be the end of him.

Every time he comes back from any place he is forced into a cavity search. Now he is being sexually & verbally bullied and in only a matter of time he will sexually abused. They have had to move him five times already for his own safety. I do not want him labeled, for what he did as a 12 year old “challenged child”. I don’t want this BS his sister's initiated to start with, following him for a lifetime of hell as a Felon Sex Offender. He is so passive you can get him to do anything. I don’t want his inability to understand it to cost him the rest of his young life. NO ONE likes a sex offender. They do not have a choice where they can live or work. I know his sisters and I know who is bad and who is good. I will never in my life time blame Allen III for starting any of it. With all the things against him he will never be able to function or have a chance in life after that.

My goal is a pardon by you sir, Mr President Obama.

Thank you for your time,

This is the letter from his teacher. I did edit out her name and other personal info. I am sure you can understand that.

Judge Kathryn W. Foster
Waukesha County Court House Rm C215
515 W. Moreland Blvd.
Waukesha, WI 53185
Dear Judge Foster:

Allen III is a student in the Alternative Diploma Program for Students with Disabilities at Waukesha South High School. This is a one year competency program, where students are required to meet four expectations:
• The student must complete 100% of the assignments with 85% or higher accuracy to complete the academic portion of the Alternative Diploma Program. Student may be required to repeat a quarter if 85% of the work is not completed within the following quarter.
• The student will use the work release time to complete eight hours of work each week outside of school.
• The student must make up any unexcused absences, including minutes tardy; goal of 85% or higher attendance rates.
• The student will follow the behavior rules of the classroom and the school community.

Allen III worked very well within the structure of this program during the first semester, earning a 100% completion rate for the first quarter in the academic subjects of English, economics, science, and math. He continued to maintain a good pace during the second quarter, again working towards a 100% completion rate. This success was through intense tutorial help and direct instruction. Allen can complete one direction at a time. When given two or three, he is confused and unable to proceed.

He recorded work hours each quarter, and is currently at the required 296 total hours for the school year, even with his incarceration time.

Allen III met his attendance goals for the first semester.

Allen III did struggle with the behavior rules. He could not understand why he could not wear his coat in the building. He did not feel the hood and hat rule (you cannot wear them in the building) was reasonable. These problems seemed to be a direct result of his neurological disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome. When he turned 18, he felt that he should be allowed to make his own choices as an adult. However, he does not have the emotional thinking level of an adult. He thinks emotionally more along the lines of an elementary student. Following are examples of how this disorder affected Allen:
• It’s hard to make friends. It was difficult for Allen to share in other kids’ interests or respond to their emotions. He would often display the “parallel play” of a toddler, sitting next to a group but not actively engaging with the group. It is not that he didn’t want to, but rather his Asperger’s prevented him from doing so.
• It is hard for a person with Asperger’s to communicate. He did not catch the subtleties of a person’s body language, like a raised eyebrow or shrugged shoulders. Sarcasm is lost on a person with this disability, making him the odd man out in many high school conversations.
• It’s hard not to get stuck on favorite topics. While the other students would talk about a variety of topics and current events, Allen could only focus on the few he understood. This again would lead to parallel conversations, where Allen was not a part of the classroom give-and-take.

Allen III was a young man who wanted to be part of a group, and have friends to speak with and activities to do. He was unable to make these positive connections. I believe this contributed to his depressive episodes and social isolation.

I believe that Allen III would benefit from a sheltered group home, based on his disability.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

CONFIDENTIAL REPORT

DRK
Attorney at Law
Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Re: Allen Campos

Dear Attorney DRK;

Pursuant to your request I met with Allen Campos on three occasions for approximately three hours to assess his sex offender treatment needs and his risk to the community. Mr. Campos was informed that the information obtained from him would be forwarded to his Attorney and the information could be used at his sentencing. Mr. Campos fully understood the potential risks involved of sharing information and signed the informed consent form along with a release of information to the Court. Mr. Campos was very casually dressed and disheveled. His appearance may have been affected by being in the County Jail. His thoughts were ridged and distorted at times, but he was able to focus on the content of the material throughout the interview. Mr. Campos’s responses to questioning were very avoidant at first but after a period of silence and contemplation, Mr. Campos would discuss the intent and dynamics of his offense. His communication style could reflect some form of Asperger’s syndrome that needs further investigation.

When discussing his inappropriate behaviors with the victim he minimized stating that the victim pursued him and he just gave in. After confronting him with the criminal complaint he admitted to some of the behaviors but was reluctant to take full responsibility other than he was manipulated and was sexually curious. Mr. Campos discussed some of the statements on the Bumby Cognitive Distortion Molest Scale. This Scale reflects commonly held distortions by molesters. His avoidance and rigid stance on responsibility aside, he did not reflect any of the distortions on that scale. In fact he was very clear in his communication rejecting the statements. This could reflect that he does not have any distorted core beliefs that are commonly held by most molesters.

As far as risk, I used the Rapid Risk Assessment for Sexual Offense Recidivism Revised. (RRASOR): This actuarial is used throughout the United States and Canada. It was developed by Karl Hanson to assess long term sex offender recidivism based on historical offending factors. Mr. Campos scored 1 out of 4 on the RRASOR which could be interpreted as being in the low risk category. He scored a 1 because he is under 25 years of age. Mr. Campos could be considered slightly higher due to his Huber privileges being revoked.

Based on the evidence complied in the interview, I believe that Mr. Campos is at the lower end of risk to the community. I also believe that his communication style which may be due to a mental health disorder or simply an oppositional defiance demeanor could be treated in the community. I recommend that he be enrolled in a special needs sexual offender program along with a life skills program designed to make better life decisions. These programs can also help with further assessment of Mr. Campos. Should you have any other questions regarding this young man please feel free to contact me.


Sincerely,
