RE: Lewis Scharff
DIN:  95A5219
NYS:  07551706K

On November 15, 1993, Shari Sarote was murdered in the stairwell of her apartment by her stepfather, Lewis Scharff.  He waited in the stairwell for Shari to leave for work and repeatedly stabbed her in the head and body. Scharff was married to Shari’s mother and he murdered her in retaliation for Shari’s mother leaving him and refusing to return to live with him again.  After he was arrested and in prison he paid a hitman to get rid of the witness. 

Scharff pled guilty to 2nd degree murder and was sentenced to 25 years to life. He will have served only 24 years when he is considered for parole.

We, the undersigned, STRONGLY OPPOSE PAROLE FOR Lewis Scharff. Justice demands he serve the full prison term given to him at the time of his sentence.
