Jeremy Hammond: We Write Letters

Jeremy Hammond’s sentencing is coming up next month (you’ll recall that he pleaded guilty back in May).  Judging by her past performance with him, I don’t expect that Judge Preska will be particularly kind to him.  That doesn’t mean, though, that we shouldn’t do all we can to encourage her to be lenient.  He faces up to 10 years, but we’d all love to see time served.

There are two things you can do to help.

First, write a letter to Judge Preska requesting leniency in sentencing.  Instructions on doing so are here, including a template.  Get your letter to Jeremy’s lawyers by October 15.

Second, Jeremy’s sentencing is 10AM on November 15, at the US Courthouse, 500 Pearl Street in Manhattan.  If you can make it that day, show up to court in support.


And, as always, as long as Jeremy is behind bars, write him letters:

Jeremy Hammond
 Metropolitan Correctional Center
150 Park Row
New York, New York 10007
