Signers oppose the release of Terry Losicco (NYS Inmate #81B1188), who is eligible for parole in March 2013 for the rape and murder of Eleanor R. Prouty, a long-time resident and civic leader of Somers, NY, and for the near-fatal beating of her husband, Norman R. Prouty Sr., on May 25, 1980. Because of the especially violent nature of Losicco's assault on the Prouty family as well as for the scathing impact he inflicted upon the community of Somers (and beyond), current and former residents of Somers oppose his release. This petition seeks to send a strong message of support to the New York State Parole Board that we believe Terry Losicco belongs behind bars.
Please share this petition with your friends from Somers. Let's get the word out!
Update: Inmate Terry Losicco was denied parole on 21 March 2013. The Parole Board stated that denial of parole was warranted because Losicco's release would be incompatible with "the welfarre of society at large" and would "deprecate the seriousness of his offenses" and "undermine respect for the law."
However, Inmate Losicco is eligible to re-appear again before the Parole Board in a mere two years, March 2015. We shall keep this petition open for further signatures and comments. We believe that this petition, which was printed and seen by each of the three commissioners (but never presented at the hearing to Inmate Losicco), influenced their decision.
