Tell Gov. Northam: Set Jens free

March 7, 2018 Bill Sizemore 10 Comments

Friends of Jens Soering are organizing a letter-writing campaign to urge Gov. Ralph Northam to grant his petition for a pardon after 32 years in prison.

Jens Soering

Evidence keeps piling up pointing to Jens’ innocence in the murders of his then-girlfriend’s parents in 1985, yet he remains locked up. Just last week, the parole board denied him parole for the 13th time.

Other than parole, there’s only one way Jens will get out of prison alive: a pardon from the governor. Jens’ petition is sitting on Gov. Northam’s desk, passed along by his predecessor Terry McAuliffe, who declined to act on it.

If you agree with me that Jens deserves freedom, please write a brief email to Gov. Northam and send it to pardonjenssoering@outlook.com. Jens’ friends will collect the emails, bundle them and deliver them to the governor’s office.

And here’s a last-minute reminder: Killing for Love, the award-winning documentary about Jens’ case, is nearing the end of its U.S. run. One of your last chances to see it will be at 7:15 tonight at the Naro Expanded Cinema, 1507 Colley Ave., Norfolk. I’ll be there to lead a Q&A after the movie, and I’ll have copies of the book I wrote with Jens telling his story.

  1. Dear Governor Northam,

    please let Jens Soering free. He isn‘t guilty.
    Please give him the chance to live free.
    He was a young boy at the time when he has done the mistake to say, that he has murdered.
    He was so young and fallen in love with E. H.
    Please let him free. There are so much evidences that he is not guilty.

    I hope for your mercy.

    Yours sincerly Pastor Gabriele Klein
