Letter to Honorable Ronnie Abrams

Let Michael live on in the ways that are courageous, loving, and ambitious, especially for those who need it the most. I urge this Court to honor Michael’s life — not by imposing a lifetime of incarceration on Irvin Cartagena, but by extending the minimum, least incarcerative, and most restorative possible sentence for him and the other men involved in this case.
