PLEASE SEND YOUR OWN LETTERS TO:
Honorable William J. Condon
Supreme Court, Suffolk County
210 Center Drive
Riverhead, NY 11901
I'D LOVE YOUR FEEDBACK AND SUPPORT... LET'S SHOW HIM HOW STRONG OUR VOICES ARE. LEAVE COMMENTS AND I WILL SEND THEM ALONG WITH MY LETTER. PLEASE LEAVE YOUR REAL NAME AND ADDRESS.
Dear Judge William J. Condon,
I was a classmate of Lindsay Soyka's for kindergarten through twelfth grade, and I am a resident of East Hampton. I have heard that in the accident involving Mrs Soyka and Charlotte Depersia, who was driving drunk at the time, you plan to sentence her to community service and probation, with a promise of no jail time. As a citizen of Suffolk County, I have to say that I am extremely disappointed.
I am a mother of a 3 year old and a survivor of a car accident that almost left me paralyzed, and to think that this three time offender may be free to drink while intoxicated again and again in the future sickens me. I don't want to drive on these streets with my daughter in the car, knowing that she walked virtually free and clear after the injuries she caused, and that the next time she crashes while drunk, it may be fatal... and it may be me.
Please penalize her to the full extent of the law. Please show her and everyone else, that DUI is taken seriously here. That our community IS a safe place to raise our children, and that a blatant disregard for others and for the law won't be tolerated.
We are counting on you to do the right thing and make sure this never happens again.
I have asked my community to send you letters with their own words, but those unable to, will leave their words and contact info here and I will send it with my own letter. Please hear the strong voices of our community and know that we take this very seriously. Our lives are at stake.
Springs, East Hampton, NY
