Letter to Judge Asking for Leniency for Son
To the judge
With all due respect I am writing this letter with a humble request to be lenient with my son’s case. I am well aware of the situation, and honestly speaking I don’t think my son should receive a cruel punishment. I am not saying this because I am his mother but I am speaking while keeping equality, and justice in my mind. The other party’s case is that my son had been bullying their son for a month now, and now my son purposely hit their son in the football field during a school game. As you heard my son’s statement that he did not deliberately hit him. On the other hand, their son is a junior so my son does not even interact with him, or know him outside of the football field. The other party has not provided any proof regarding their claims of bullying against my son. If you wish to punish him for his act on the football field, you may give him a warning. Although, punishing him on fake claims is injustice.
I request to be lenient with my son’s case, and do justice to him, and his family.
