"WESLEY SHERMANTINE Jr."
Death Row Inmate Shermantine declined (refused) Attorney General offer of Life-Without-Parole on March 14, 2011.
I've not murdered anyone, so what would compel me to accept a deal of any kind which had a "life" sentence attached to it?
My heart aches for the Herzog's victim's family members. I really would like to help them all, but the A.G. and D.A. MUST present a far-better offer.
My name is Wesley Shermantine Jr. I've been here on Death Row since May of 2001. I'm currently single but previously married to a wonderful woman who blessed me with two beautiful sons (now grown men). She has since remarried.
I was born on February 24th, 1966 in Stockton, California and graduated from Linden High School in 1984. Prior to this tragedy occurring in my/our lives, I/we enjoyed simple things like fishing, hiking, hunting, horseback-riding, backing packing into the wilderness, water skiing, gold panning, playing in the winter snow, and just about anything to do with the great outdoors.
Professionally, construction was my forte --- building motels, hotels, apartment complexes, both track and custom homes -- everything from concrete to roofing, framing to finish work. I miss working each day.
It's increasingly difficult to remain faithful despite being a baptized Catholic since July of 2007. I live alone in a tiny prison cell, trying to teach myself to draw and paint. I enjoy reading fantasy books and watch a considerable amount of television.
Never having been to prison before, I get by. There's a lot more to me than really meets the eye. I love music too, along with the unexplainable in life --- things we cannot see or even have a true understanding of.
Today, I seek genuine friendship from all walks of life, men and women whatever age, and people willing to tough out this rough patch in my life with me, those willing to take a chance on getting to know me while at the same time, learning how the justice system "really" functions, placing innocent people into prison while freeing the guilty.
If you believe we might share some common ground, I'd like to hear from you. I can be contacted directly at:
Wesley Shermantine, SQSP # T-18128, San Quentin, CA 94964-0001 USA
