Please Urge Governor Brown to allow the Release of Karen Narita on Parole

Ms. Karen Narita has been in prison for more than 26 years for a murder committed by her abusive husband.  She takes full responsibility for participation in the crime and feels tremendous remorse about the victim’s tragic death.  Ms. Narita is now a 48-year-old mother and grandmother who poses no risk of future harm if she is released. 

Ms. Narita has been found eligible for parole by the California Board of Parole Hearings. This is the second time that the Board has found that she poses no risk to public safety - she was previously found suitable for parole in 2004.

The parole decision now goes to Governor Brown.  Please urge the governor to uphold Ms. Narita's parole.  Thank you.
