Greetings everyone and especially supporters of Seth Hayes. Seth was “hit” again at the Parole Board for the 9th time. The reason given was the same reason given for previous 8 parole board appearances: “due to serious nature of the crime.” Seth was given a risk assessment last year and it came back very low. Seth has had a great work record, discipline record, a family. Seth is also a Vietnam veteran, having received the purple heart. This reasoning has nothing to do with rehabilitation, with the community in mind, his family. It also fails to recognize the 15 year to life sentence Seth has served past the mandatory 25. Seth, now in his 60’s, has been incarcerated since 1973, and is now in his 40th year of incarceration. Seth is not the only one either, the Department of Corrections and the Parole Board have much interest in keeping inmates inside. More to come in the future.
Please send him a letter to keep his spirits up.ROBERT SETH HAYES
