Deny Parole for Joelle Nieves-Cruz, Springfield, MA

Dear Masachusetts Governor Charlie Baker and Massachusetts Parole Board Chairman Paul Treseler,

Please deny Joelle Nieves-Cruz parole when his hearing arises this March 2017.  Based on Joelle Nieves-Cruz prior behavior, he shows a high risk to reoffend and hurt or even kill other innocent members of our society and community and we cannot let that happen.  Joelle Nieves-Cruz has served less than 1 1/2 years of a  3-5 year sentence at the Hampden County Correctional Facility after being found guilty for leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death on November 10, 2013.  The innocent victim that died in this crash was amazing my 17 year old son, Skyler Anderson-Coughlin.  Mr. Nieves-Cruz did not care about helping my son Skyler and only thought about himself, fleeing the scene, leaving my son Skyler to die.  Prior to being found guilty on this charge, a default warrant was the issued on August 24, 2015 for Mr. Nieves-Cruz due to his missing several court dates relating to this matter.  There were also two default warrants issued for Joelle Nieves-Cruz in June 2015, in the Springfield District Court, stemming from incidents on June 25, 2014 and August 21, 2015, both for operating a vehicle with a suspended license.  Joelle Nieves-Cruz also has two prior convictions for driving a motor vehicle with a suspended license, in 2006 and 2007.  Joelle Nieves-Cruz has shown us that he has not led a law abiding life and the risk on our community that he will re enter our society and risk the welfare of our safe being is far too great.  Parole should be denied to ensure the safety of our innocent law abiding citizens.  Every day I wish I could bring my son Skyler back to life and in his honor, I will do everything in my power to protect others from being hurt or killed from this dangerous and selfish human being.
