Petition to NEW YORK STATE PAROLE BOARD

Garth Cole MUST serve his 5 year sentence for driving the car that killed Michael Nolan.

On September 18th, 2015 Garth Cole drove the car that did the drive by shooting that killed Michael Nolan the innocent Oakland Athletics baseball in Yonkers,NY while Michael was standing next to his car eating a cheeseburger in the parking lot. Michael fought extremely hard for his life for three weeks in the hospital by unfortunately passed away due to his injuries. Garth Cole tried to sell his car days later to hide evidence and did not come forward until the Yonkers Police tracked him down along with the three other murders after six months. Cole who pleaded down to a lesser charge and cooperated with the police for his testimony accepted a deal of five years in prison for his cooperation. This upcoming December 4th, 2019 he is eligible for an early release from the New York State Parole Board and we can NOT allow that to happen. Cold MUST serve every single month, week, day, minute, and second apart of the 5 year prison term that he accepted. Garth Coles original release date is 2/24/21. Michael has unfortunately received a lifetime sentence and will never be able to get released from it so Garth Cole should not be let out any sooner then he is suppose to. I ask you to please sign and share with family and friends this petition in support of Garth Cole NOT getting out one second sooner then the original date that he was sentenced. He didn’t pull the trigger but he is just as much of a murder like the other three that were in the car, they all played a part in taking Michael away from us. I am also asking for people to write letters supporting that he should not be allowed out early and should serve every second that he should in prison. If anyone is interested in writing a letter also please contact me for details, I have to collect the letters. We must continue to fight for justice for Mike and all of the support is needed!
