Letter from Parents of Lisa Dickson

August 1, 2006

heartThe daily newspaper ran an article on the Eric Smallridge’s efforts to have his sentence reduced.[ Smallridge wants jail time cut]

Smallridge was convicted in 2003 of DUI and killing Meagan Napier and Lisa Dickson. Meagan & Lisa (20 at time) were classmates of my daughter Cat. I coached Meagan, her twin sister Carmen and their older sister Michelle in Rec league basketball.
The article mentions a letter from the Dicksons in favor of reducing Smallridge’s sentence.

Here is a pdf of the actual letter (pardon the fax quality): Dickson Letter.pdf

    Technically it wouldn’t be a reduction in sentence. Just to have them run concurrent. It will be interesting to see how this all turns out.

    I have posted the letter on two of my websites. The guy joins MADD which promotes bigotry and government-sponsored, unprovoked violence against people like his daughter, who never got a chance to drink legally, but he doesn’t want drunk drivers to get the punishment necessary to deter such crimes.

    The guy even led a vigil in Wayside Park in Gulf Breeze where MADD presented an award to a cop for busting underage drinkers (and drunk drivers.) and they lose their licenses for drinking responsibly.
