On January 12, 2007, Jamie R. Madrigal stood before Lucas County Common Pleas Court Judge regarding case #CR-96-5761 and #CR-07-1081. Having entered pleas of guilty to single aggravated murder counts (among other things), in both cases the court proceeded to impose a sentencing judgement of "20 years mandatory incarceration to life in prison" for each aggravated murder count; a sentence of which has no statutory authority per Ohio's sentencing guidelines for aggravated murder

Since then, several pro se attempts have been made to obtain remedy.  Every attempt however, has been met with undue opposition.  Rather than acknowledge or even oppose the validity of his comprehension of the applicable law, the State of Ohio's officers of the courts have used the doctrine of res judicata and/or the law of the case to deny remedy.  Neither doctrine, however, is applicable when considering that a sentence for which there exists no statutory authority is void and the exception to the doctrines relied on to deny Mr. Madrigal the remedy he is entitled. 

Considering these facts, I ask you, What vested interest does the State of Ohio and it's officers of the court, notably Lucas County Prosecutors and Judges and the 6th District Court of Appeals, have in disregarding statutory law requirements?

I am aware that you have intervened on previous occasions and compelled the court to comply with the law and I am asking that you take that same action now and compel the 6th District to comply with the law with regard to the void sentence that was given in Mr. Madrigal's case(s).  

Thank you for your time and consideration in this serious matter.

Friends and Family of Jamie R. Madrigal Sr.
