Judge must give intoxicated driver full sentence

Published 9:16am Tuesday, November 13, 2012

This is a mission for the Remembrance of Angel Dawn McGinnis.

Would her friends and our county’s community please send a letter to Judge Leonard Holzapfel?

Ask him to give Christopher Haines an out of the box sentence- ask for more time than six months to a year.

Haines took the life of a 10 year who like many children on Dec. 18, 2010, was looking forward of the love of Christmas instead her family, friends and teachers began a permanent transition without her love.

It is imperative for us to at least send our special requests before the judge sentences Christopher Haines to a light sentence and not recognizing Angel and her meaning to her family, friends and teachers. Christopher Haines deserves many years in our prison system and without consideration of time already served.

Please write Judge Holzapfel upon reading this as well please inform others about our Remembrance of Angel Dawn McGinnis Letter Campaign.

Please do not hesitate on this mission; the letters are to be sent immediately to:

Judge Leonard Holzapfel

The Judge of Common Pleas

226 E Main #6

Jackson, OH 45640- 3801

Thank you for your attention to this important mission.

    My letter is on its way. To imagine giving someone n6 months for killiong someone is inane. You drink, you drive, you kill, you should suffer the same consequences.
