PETITION: DENY PAROLE to TORTURER Beck, Gregory Patrick, CDC # T61119

SHERRY CARLTON was 32 years old when she was deliberately knocked unconscious by Gregory Patrick Beck at their home in Ukiah, CA on 26 August 2001. Beck then doused her head and upper body with cigarette lighter fluid, and set her on fire. Sherry awoke on fire, screaming and pleading for help, while Beck sat by and watched! Due to numerous resulting complications over the 15 years of pain and suffering, Sherry Carlton passed away as an emotionally and physically scarred quadriplegic on 18 March 2016.

Please keep other women and the community safe by helping the Board of Parole Hearings judges again deny any chance of parole to Gregory Patrick Beck, CDC # T61119.

The viciously cold and callous seriousness of the crime, and lasting effects that he committed against the then 32-year old Sherry Carlton, my daughter, and mother of her and Beck's child, should forever stand against him. THE INTENTIONAL ACT OF SETTING THE STAGE TO TRY AND FOOL THE POLICE, ATTACKING, RENDERING UNCONSCIOUS, AND DOUSING SHERRY WITH LIGHTER FLUID AND SETTING HER ON FIRE, while he, Gregory Beck, calmly sat on their porch watching Sherry burning and running for help and screaming in pain, and calling 911 that night on 26 August 2001 because she left him, is true evidence of how cold, callous, and dangerous Beck is and will always be. This cruel and vicious attack resulted in Sherry’s 15 years of continuous severe pain and suffering, scarring on her face and more than 30 percent of her body, a debilitating brain injury, total disability, speechless, blind, a quadriplegic, confinement to bed, inability to ever care for herself, and death on 18 March 2016.

Beck’s release would put Sherry’s family, any woman Beck would attempt a relationship with, and others’ lives in severe danger.

Your printed name and signature are all that's required for the petition.

Parole hearing is 27 February 2018. This will be our third attendance at Beck's parole hearings. The parole board is very impressed with the public's outcry to keep Gregory Patrick Beck in prison. These petitions and letters have a tremendous impact, and have twice been successful in keeping Beck confined in prison. Please help.

If mailing petitions or letters to the Board of Parole Hearings (address below), they must be mailed by 18 February 2018 at the latest. Or they can be emailed to me If the signed petitions show on this site, then I'll mail them to:

P.O. BOX 4036,
SACRAMENTO, CA 93812-4036
PHONE: 916-445-4072


Sincerely from Sherry Carlton's mom, family, and friends.
