Sean’s Recent Chronos

The following are some of the most recent letters of recommendation (Chronos) written by prison staff for Sean’s commutation. Sean will be sending these to the Governor in his commutation packet, along with many other chronos, letters from friends and family, achievement certificates, college transcripts, and photos. (Certain names have been removed for privacy)

A chrono is not something that comes easily. It is not something you will find in an inmate’s file unless they have worked hard to earn it. You would be hard pressed to find anyone with multiple chronos in their file. Sean has countless chronos from prison staff, so many I can barely keep them all straight. And more come every week. Why? Because he clearly does not deserve to be in prison, he is not a typical inmate and he is always of upright moral character. The prison staff have taken note of the injustice that has been done to him, they are sick of seeing it, and are writing to help bring Sean home.

These descriptions of my husband Sean: “Highly respectful, courteous and polite” “positive role model” “never displays the usual prison attitude” “open and honest” “does the right thing even when inconvenient for himself- putting his integrity and values above peer pressure” “has shown exceptional character” “hard work, dedication, positive attitude and admiration of both peers and staff” these are things I already know and love about him but it is so valuable to have it come in the form of a professional letter from experienced highly reputable people. Even though Sean proved his innocence in court at the Evidentiary Hearing in January 2017, we are still being forced to wait for the ruling and during that wait we are painstakingly proving his character as well as his innocence in his commutation packet. It’s a task we do not take lightly, but it is a challenge we are ready for because we know the truth.

Thank you to Sean’s professors, prison staff and officers who have written chronos and letters of support! It means so much to us.

You can sign our petition to ask Governor Newsom for Sean’s freedom or find us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter @emeliaobrien12. GoFundMe

We have truth on our side, we will not be silenced. We will never stop our fight for justiceĀ
