Pardon Carmen Granata

On November 5th 2006 after returning from a rock concert, and after holding a barbeque earlier in the day; some friends of Carmen Granata decided to stay the night in her home instead of driving back to their places tired and dangerous behind the wheel. One of Carmen Granata's friends went out on her front porch at 4:00 in the morning to use her cell phone so she wouldn't wake up people inside the house. The police shortly arrived and gave Carmen Granata a misdemeanor citation for violation of the city noise ordinance and was told to show up for court on November 21st at 8am. The prosecuting attorney told her if she pleaded guilty before entering the courtroom she would just be given a minimal fine because this was her first offense and she had no prior convictions, so she pleaded guilty before entering the courtroom. Judge Norene S. Redmond, not allowing Carmen to defend herself because she had already plead guilty before entering the courtroom, heard mostly unproven complaints from some of her neighbors that she was "Nuisance" to the neighborhood and presented a petition stateing so, while ignoring written statements from her surrounding neighbors stateing that she wasn't a nuisance and was a fine neighbor. Carmen quite emphaticly denied the allegations from some of her neighbors, but Judge Redmond refused to listen to Carmen (despite the fact one of the singee's was in jail that night for throwing a beer bottle at Carmen's house while her Barbeque was in progress) and sentenced her to 30 days in jail with two years of highly restrictive probation that includes her not being allowed to have guest stay over at her house and she cannot host a party unless she gets written permission from her neighbors. Any violation of Carmen's probation or other conviction during those two years is automaticly punished with 60 days in jail.
That sentence is stiffer then one's given to felony convictions, completly disgusting when considering it was handed down to someone with a first time offense for a NOISE VIOLATION!! Her attorney Michael Kavanaugh is appealing her sentence, but there's no telling how that will go.I say we take a more progressive action and ask the governor Jennifer Granholm to issue a pardon to Carmen so this nasty episode of injustice in her life will be wiped away from her record. Although I am a resident of Ohio not Michigan, I am an American before all other things and a gross act of tyranny must be dealt with immediatly. So I ask all of us to put aside our differences whether they be Michigan/Ohio State, Red State/Blue State, Liberal/Conservative, Republican/Democrat and pick up a telephone and ask (Politely) that Jennifer Granholm would please issue a pardon to Carmen Granata, forever wiping away the great injustice that was done to her by a tyrannt Judge that doesn't practice American Justice but serves at the request of lynch mobs. The Governor's information is below and when you're calling remember to request a pardon application form as well:
