Honorable Governor Hickenlooper,
Please consider Jason Pecci’s commutation request and commute his sentence to the midrange of the corresponding aggravated class III felony range (8-24years).
Prosecutorial posturing appears to have covered up the true facts of the case.
The aggressive posturing by the victim which resulted in physical bodily contact, was overlooked in the course of the consideration by the court and warrants revisiting. I think any
practical person can conclude that the altercation was a struggle which resulted in a fatal shot. That fatal shot was from 1-3 inches which would intimate close body contact.
Other statements and video evidence supports Mr. Pecci’s consistent claim that there was in fact no premeditation, which ultimately resulted in the greater charge and sentence. I understand the judge said at sentencing that premeditation and deliberation were in his consideration when he decided the sentence. I also understand that this statement was out of place considering the plea was to second degree murder and the statute for that does not support premeditation and deliberation.
With no deliberation and no malice aforethought it fits the manslaughter class III requirement. The seconds between the time the victim pushed into Jason and Jason fired the shot did not give time for deliberation or malice.
It appears everything about this process was designed to deny any supportive facts for Jason.
Please consider Jason’s request for a commuted sentence.
