Justice for Jimmy Ryce

This petition made change with 25 supporters!


On September 11, 1995, 9-year-old Jimmy Ryce was kidnapped at gunpoint, raped and later murdered and dismembered while trying to escape.

18 years later the person responsible for this atrocious crime, Juan Carlos Chavez, continues to sit on death row, frivolously appealing his much deserved death sentence.

The damage this one individual has done to this poor family is unimaginable.  Subsequent to little Jimmy's passing, his mother died and his sister committed suicide and still he continues to live to this day thumbing his nose at society, the Ryce family and the justice system.

I can only imagine that all of Jimmy's classmates have grown up, gotten married, have kids and spend every Holiday with their family. This will never happen for Don Ryce.

Let's bring closure to the Ryce family, Jimmy's friends who never forgot him, and a community torn apart and brought together, who have suffered beyond what we can even comprehend.

The sole person responsible for ruining so many lives, Juan Carlos Chavez, has exhausted all of his frivoulous appeals and should now pay for the horrific crimes that he commited against a defensless child taken away so young.

If you are familar with this case please sign this petition so we can deliver it to the Florida Governor and ask him to sign the death warrant. If not please read a few articles of this case that are still on the internet after all these years and then if you agree that this crimminal should pay for his actions please sign it.

With a very heavy heart, we thank you.
