RE: Anthony Butler
ID#: 00A0150

Hearing: November 1, 2017

On September 21, 1995, Anthony Butler murdered Cyrus Cooper, stabbing him and leaving him to die from severe internal bleeding. Anthony was living in an apartment with Cyrus and his cousin, and Cyrus asked Anthony to leave because they were arguing. Cyrus offered to give him money for a bus ticket to go back to his home town. Anthony took the money and broke back into the apartment and caught Cyrus off guard, chasing him around the apartment with a kitchen knife. After stabbing him, Anthony cut the phone lines and left the apartment.

Butler pled guilty to murder in the second degree and was sentenced to 15 years to life. He will have served only 19 years when he is considered for parole.

We, the undersigned, STRONGLY OPPOSE PAROLE FOR Anthony Butler. Justice demands he serve the full prison term given to him which was life at the time of his sentence.
