PLEA FOR PUBLIC SUPPORT TO CORRECT AN INJUSTICE

Submitted by David Michael Bomber, a prisoner confined within the Virginia Dept. of Corrections.

STATEMENT OF THE NATURE OF THE PETITION

This petition is an effort to gain support from the public. Essentially, I am asking that the Governor of Virginia grant me a conditional pardon based on the following mitigating factors.

SOME OF THE FACTS:

I. THE PETITIONER IS BEING PUNISHED CUMULATIVELY FOR THE SAME ACT

On June 5th, 2010, I met Larry Michael Worrell II for the very first time at the pool in the apartment complex where he and I both resided. A short time later, Mike and I left the pool and went to his apartment and began drinking. Later, we drove to Hardee's and picked up Velvie Proffitt, who was my girlfriend at the time, who also met Mike for the very first time.
Eventually, Mike, Velvie, and I returned to the pool at some point that day. However, the facts are in dispute as to exactly what time that the three if us was at the pool together, as well as when we all left. As I will point out later, the testimony given here is inconsistent at best.
During this particular day Mike drank heavily and exhibited erratic behavior. His behavior culminated during a discussion when he became agitated and claimed that he suffered from PTSD from witnessing his buddies "being blown up in a helicopter crash." Following that he became so distraught that he placed me in a military-style chokehold to the point that I nearly lost consciousness, which occurred inside of my apartment.
Coincidentally, Mike was both a former Marine and MP, as well as a former police officer with the Chesapeake Police Dept. in Virginia.
It was at this point that Velvie intervened, enabling me to escape from Mike's grasp. After being pursued by him, I armed myself with a steak knife and stabbed him in the chest ONE TIME.
However, after the fact I did attempt to render first aid. Shortly afterwards though Velvie instructed me to leave the premises and go to the residence of some friends while she called 911, which I foolishly complied with. Velvie then proceeded to take it upon herself to fabricate a story to the dispatcher that Mike had attempted suicide.
It is noteworthy to point out that the only witness to the stabbing was Velvie, who eventually testified for the defense. (Please read "The Testimony of Velvie Proffitt" @ www.davidmbomber.wordpress.com
Initially I was charged with malicious wounding. However, that charge was dropped in favor of aggravated malicious wounding when Mike's condition worsened to the point that he suffered from irreversible physical impairment.

II. THE TESTIMONY GIVEN IN THE ALLEGED ASSAULTS IS INCONSISTENT & CONTRADICTORY

In addition to being indicted for aggravated malicious wounding, in Dec. 2010 I was also indicted for two courts of assault & battery, hit & run, and reckless driving. The alleged "assaults" are said to have occurred at the pool on June 5th, 2010, and the hit & run and reckless driving did in fact occur immediately after the stabbing.
Sadly, 224 days after the stabbing Mike passed away from complications from the wounding. As a result, I faced an additional indictment for second-degree murder along with the aggravated malicious indictment. In addition to that, I was also indicted in April 2011 for another count of assault & battery that allegedly occurred at the pool on June 5th, 2010.
Ultimately, I was convicted by a jury on both indictments and was subsequently sentenced to 25 years for the aggravated malicious wounding and 15 years for the second-degree murder conviction. For the three counts of assault & battery, I received four months each. The only two indictments that I pled guilty to, the hit & run, and reckless driving, the court imposed 30 days each. As a result, I was sentenced to 41 years and 60 days, with the sentence running consecutively.
As I pointed out to the various courts, the testimony given in the assault & batteries by the Commonwealth's witnesses is inconsistent and further contradictory. Ironically, as the transcripts reflects, the only witnesses to the "assaults" are the victims themselves. Yet, these incidents supposedly occurred at a crowded pool. Moreover, even Brett Bowles, whom was one of the Commonwealth's witnesses, testified that he didn't see anything unusual happen at the pool.
It is also noteworthy to mention that point out that here Velvie's testimony differed from the Commonwealth's witnesses concerning when and what happened at the pool (Please visit www.davidmbomber.wordpress.com to read transcripts of the witnesses testimony).

III. THE PETITIONER IS DEEPLY REMORESFUL OVER WHAT TRANSPIRED

Although I felt forced to defend myself, I am nonetheless utterly devestated by what happened that day and how it resulted for Mike and his family. Being that I am a father of two myself and a brother, I can only imagine their pain and grief from this trajedy. Moreover, words cannot adequately convey just how regretful and deeply remorseful I am over what happened. Simply put, this is something that will remain with me the rest of my life regardless of what sentence I must serve by any court.
