Dawn Brown started this petition to Kerrville District Attorney Scott Monroe

He risked his life as he served this country to ensure we have our constitutional rights, yet he is now being denied his rights to a fair sentence.  

Iraqi War Veteran, Vernon Travis, unjustly received a 55-year-prison sentence for Burglary of a Habitation with intent to commit another felony, while his counterparts received 15 and 29 years, respectively.  Travis and one accomplice were apprehended at the time of the crime, while the 3rd person was at large for over a year. While Travis did not initiate the break into the house or contrive the plan, he was the only one to throw himself at the mercy of the court.  No one was harmed, yet Travis received the excessive 55-year sentence.  

Travis, had been released honorably from the Air Force shortly after returning from Iraq. He received no post military counseling to determine any level of support he should receive after serving. Subsequently, and after self-medicating for symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), he was formally diagnosed by the Veteran's Affairs Hospital.  He and two childhood friends allegedly burglarized a known drug dealer to steal Xanax and money.

Evidence proves a conflict of interest relationship between Travis' attorney and one of the other accomplices exists in the form of court transcripts, personal telephone records, and falsified documents. Travis' attorney covertly protected the at-large accomplice.   

The Kerrville District Attorney is willing to review information, but makes no guarantees to make remedy because his constituents, the jurors, voted the sentence. They were unaware of the facts of the at-large accomplice's role. We seek a just, comparable sentence commensurate with his involvement for Vernon Travis.
