Ashley Wolfe started this petition to GEORGIA STATE BOARD OF PARDONS AND PAROLES

I am writing this petition to show the members of the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles that Russell Holt (Inmate # 1001060520) should NOT be granted parole. On March 18th, 2012, Russell Holt killed my sister Jessica Nicole Wolfe. They went out with her friends for St. Patrick’s Day and went to a few bars in town. Some time after they were dropped off at his house, Jessica sent a text to her friend saying he was banging her head against the wall. He later shot her in the back with his government issued weapon. Instead of calling 911 after such a heinous act, he was found screaming in his front yard. It wasn’t until then that the neighbor called 911 and she was pronounced dead when they arrived. He originally claimed an intruder knocked him unconscious that night and held on to that story for almost a year.

Holt was charged with Malice and Felony Murder, but the lawyers agreed to a plea deal in which he pleaded guilty for voluntary manslaughter and faced 20 years in prison. Although my family was not in agreement with the arrangement, it was accepted by the district attorney's office so that they could be more assured of a conviction. He has now “served” almost 7 years and his case is being reviewed by the Georgia State Board of Pardons and Paroles.

I want everyone to know that my sister wouldn’t have cried out for help unless it was dire circumstances. She hid things about her relationships because she didn’t want her family and friends to judge them or question her about why she stayed. There is no doubt in my mind that this was not the first instance of abuse. When he is released, he will not be legally labeled a murderer because of the plea agreement. No one will know how terrorizing her was or the truth about what he did to her that night.

My sister was a wonderful person who was always willing to help others. She was a Relay for Life Captain, an avid animal shelter supporter, and a friend to so many. I would never want anyone else to go through the heartbreak my family and I continue to feel since she was taken from us. It’s extremely difficult to think about what she’d be up to now. Would she be married? How many kids would she have had? How much would she be smitten by her beautiful nieces?

I cannot begin to tell you the effects this has had on the lives of my family. Even though I was only 25 when this happened to my sister, I knew I had to stand up and speak for her. I spoke at her funeral, a candlelight vigil, and at domestic violence seminars. I am only continuing that now by trying to get as many people as possible to try to help me keep this monster in jail. His father’s house, the same house he spent a year at on house arrest, will probably be where he will stay if released. The entrance of that neighborhood is less than a mile from my house. I cannot stand the thought of him being in such close proximity to my family. It makes my stomach turn. I now have a 2 year old daughter who I will protect with everything in me. We need to bond together to keep him in jail away from anyone that he can do harm to again.

I ask that you please sign this petition to keep this monster behind bars for the entire 20 year sentence. Thank you for your support!
