Free Debbie Peagler

This petition had 80 supporters


Dear Friends,

I am so thrilled to report that Debbie was found suitable for release on parole by the Board of Parole Hearings today!

Debbie's unbeatable spirit and the tireless work of her attorneys produced this incredible outcome. But as they said, it was the support and interest taken by people like you who made the difference.

1+1+1....1332 strong....THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF THIS.

Deborah Peagler has been imprisoned since 1983. She has finally earned the right to a new hearing, but District Attorney Steve Cooley continues to oppose her freedom, even after agreeing to a deal that would have led to her release in 2005. Now she has been diagnosed with a terminal form of cancer and should be allowed to spend her final days with her family.


Debbie's attorneys are gathering letters in preparation for her parole hearing, expected to take place later this year. (Her hearing was scheduled for May 28, 2009, but was postponed just two days before it was supposed to take place). Please send your letter today to her attorneys 
at this address:

Subject: One week away.

Dear Friends, 

As you know, Debbie's much anticipated Parole Board Hearing on May 28th was sadly postponed. It has been rescheduled for ONE WEEK FROM TODAY, July 10, 2009. 

This is our last push. Please take a moment to send the petition to anyone (particularly CA residents) you know who have not yet signed. With 1277 signatures and counting, we are all hoping that the Parole Board and Gov. Schwarzenegger get this message loud and clear. 

Debbie's health has continued to decline as she fights Stage IV cancer. This truly is now or never. 

Thank you so much for making a difference.
