Robert Seth Hayes 2016 Parole Appeal

Robert Seth Hayes had his scheduled parole board hearing on June 14, 2016. For the tenth time, the NYS Parole Board has denied Robert Seth Hayes parole, for all the same reasons they have denied him the prior nine times.

Seth had a great parole packet with housing, employment, volunteer opportunities, college opportunities, medical support, VA support, family and friends support, financial support. He is a model prisoner, over 65, very low risk rate based on the DOCCS own COMPAS test; he has multiple chronic and incurable health issues and has been locked up for almost 45 years.

Despite this, the parole board decided to waste more life, money and resources to incarcerate this man and deny him access to his family and community, who are waiting for him with open arms. Thank you to everyone who has supported Seth and written letters, signed petitions, spread the word, donated money, made calls.

We are not going to stop. Seth is resolute and we are going forward with appealing this decision and creating a campaign to reverse this decision. If you know Seth please send him a card or be prepared to support some movement in the coming months!

You can read the extremely biased parole board decision here.

Also, we have received the transcript of Seth's parole hearing. We highly recommend that you read the transcript and also Jalil's transcript so you can see the similarities in these extremely biased denials.
