Request for Leniency
  • Petitioning Honorable Judge King

This petition will be delivered to:

Honorable Judge King

Request for Leniency

    1. Zahra Lahiji
    2. Petition by

      Zahra Lahiji

      McAllen, TX

We the undersigned individuals are family members, friends, acquaintances, and supporters of Dr. and Mrs. Lahiji and we are writing this letter of support with no hesitation in order to ask your honorable court for leniency at their sentencing.

Dr. Lahiji and Mrs. Lahiji's accounting records prove that they have donated about $10 million dollars to 501(c)(3) charitable organizations. This fact alone proves them to be generous, compassionate, and ethical individuals. As you also know, they are very educated. So, they would understand the consequences of criminal activity and they worked hard to earn their degrees. Theives and criminals are hardly ever generous and they usually don't work hard to earn such high education.

We endorse Dr. and Mrs. Lahiji's character and ask you for leniency.

Thank you very much for your consideration and attention.
