Subject: Letters needed re: Ab poachers

Hey folks,

The judge is getting ready to sentence the 2 ab poachers, Kurt Ward and Joshua Holt, who were found in possession of 468 abalone last month. They have plead guilty and the bargain is for 2 years sentence, not the maximum, 3 years. The prosecutors feel that since no jury or judge has ever sentenced the max, they had to accept this plea bargain.
The judge is not bound by the plea agreement, and can sentence the max if he feels it's warranted. The Mendocino County judges need to hear from you on this issue. Please send a letter to:

Judge David Nelson
Superior Court
100 N. State St.
Ukiah, CA 95482
