Please support the release of Yvette Louisell (0805144), who was sentenced as a 17-year-old college student to life without parole. Yvette has been incarcerated now for 24 years. Take a moment to write a short letter to: Judge Michael Moon, Story County District Court, 1315 South B Avenue, Nevada, IA 50201

Since the June Supreme Court decision to strike down laws of Life Without Parole for Juveniles, the Iowa Governor Terry Branstad converted each of the individual cases in Iowa to 60 years. Her case is now in the courts.

Hopefully, there is great support by our readers to end JWLOP and support fair sentencing; and a note to Judge Moon would be most helpful. Please email Nancy at nancystree@yahoo for more information. Share this note with others that may be interested!

Yvette’s case has been described in two previous letters in the Handful of Salt.
