Dawn Nguyen is a young woman who was found guilty of falsifying business records. Normally a first time offender like her, charged with a non-violent class E felony, would be sentenced to probation, but this is not a normal case. Dawn Nguyen's former neighbor, William Spengler, set fire to his house December 24, 2012, then shot first responders as they came to help. A few minutes later he killed himself. Two of the three guns Mr. Spengler used were ones that Dawn Nguyen had purchased 2 years prior at Gander Mountain. Since she had put that she was the purchaser and owner of the guns, and 2 years later Mr. Spengler used them in the ambush, she was charged with falsifying business records. The fact that first responders were shot made the case "high profile" and the trial was heavily attended by police officers and firefighters, who wanted somebody to take blame for the situation that killed their men. I don't blame them for being angry, I just wish they were angry at the right person.
Dawn Nguyen is a beautiful and educated young woman. She is always the first person to help a friend, or even a stranger, without having to be asked. She would give you whatever you need, even if it left her with nothing. She has been known to go out of her way to bring Thanksgiving dinner to the VA in Canandaigua, so that the veterans have a home cooked meal. She has frequently brought people home for holidays that she knows doesn't have a family to celebrate with. She has 3 nine year old neices that look up to her and love her very much. She is an asset to this society, and she doesn't deserve to go to prison.
Please sign this petition to ask the judge to be lenient when sentencing Dawn Nguyen, to be fair and sentence her as a person would typically be sentenced in this situation. She is not to blame for what someone else did, and she shouldn't face somebody else’s sentence because they are not around to face their own consequences.
Thank you for your time.
NEGATIVITY WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED ON THIS PETITION. THIS IS NOT AND WILL NOT BE THE INTENTIONS OF THIS PETITION.
