I am a relative of the defendant and I want to know if I could write a letter to the judge to get her to reconsider the sentence and allow work release. He is currently sentenced to 150 days in jail with no work release. He was previously granted work release but he failed to show on time for court to be sentenced to jail with work release. He showed up late on a Friday and they would not except him in and was told to show up on Monday because they were closed for the weekend. When he appeared on Monday the judge denied him work release and was sentenced to do 150 days in jail. He just acquired a good job and will be fired if he doesn't show. He has four kids and needs an income to support them. How can I get the judge to see that he really needs this job?
