Appeal letter for leniency after termination of employment?

Good day,

Ad

I was terminated from employment 13 November 2015 after a disciplinary hearing for Theft/Misappropriation/unlawful possession of funds as well as withholding information.

I was found guilty and I would like to make an appeal to the company CEO, as I would like to explain that my financial situation LED to my very serious error in judgement, and I do acknowledge that I was terribly in the wrong, but the money was taken with all intention of paying it back as I was in the process of applying for a personal loan with the bank, but it had some delays which caused my reconciliation of funds to be delayed and LED to the disciplinary hearing. I would like to plead for leniency as I am a sole bread winner and have been for the past five years and losing my job will really hamper all plans I am working at to better my situation. The scariest for me is that I have a four year old daughter that needs my support. I would like to to state that if reinstated I would like to make a payment plan to be able to pay back the company money. I really need to plead to get a second chance. How do I go about writing this letter? I need assistance.

Thank you.

In this letter do not make excuses. You can mention the circumstances but in a means of atonement. Plead that you are the sole support financially for your daughter and that you will not make these mistakes again. Be sure to address that you used the money as personal funds like a loan out of distress and that you should have spoken with a supervisor before you made this grave error in judgment. Make out a payment schedule and include that in the letter. You can offer that they take these payments directly out of your salary.

Can I get a sweet love letter for reconciliation?

I need a letter to my wife to clear her doubt about me cheating on her. I have tried: Just for her to trust me that I am not cheating on her, she is the only one in my life

She is feeling insecure and this is the reason for her suspecting you of cheating. Think about what behaviors have her thinking that you are cheating and correct them. Even if it means that you give up something you enjoy doing for the time being. In your letter, list 50 ways that make her better than any other woman for you. Explain how she is the most important person in your life and there is no desire to find someone else because you know they will never compare to her. Write an Apology Letter to Your Wife is a VisiHow article with suggestions to include. Even though you have nothing to apologize for you should still apologize for not showing her the attention/love that she deserves.

Give her complete access to yourself. This means volunteering information about your day without her asking. Leave your phone out unlocked for her to look through. Do not say anything about it but leave your phone and let her decide if she needs to check it. Make Your Marriage Work and Have a Happy and Contented Marriage are two VisiHow articles to read.

You will want to be extremely specific in your request for reassessment. If you think the lost or stolen bags were placed then you will want to list out whatever details you have about the matter. If you can get the vehicle numbers and a letter from the transportation company to attach this would be even better.

I got a speeding ticket and am called to the court for hearing. I would like to write a letter to the court for an apology

Dear Judge (Name),

I would like to address the court with a formal apology for my recent vehicular infraction. I know that I was not obeying the posted speed limit and for that I am sorry. I understand that I could have caused harm to myself or another person should I have been involved in an accident at that speed.

Would you mind proofreading my letter?

This letter took me a lot longer to write than I expected. This isn't the first letter I've ever written asking for mercy; however, this is the first time I've ever written to a judge. So, your Honor, I ask you humbly to take this into consideration while you continue to read the following. Therefore, if I somehow offend you or anyone else in any way, I ask please keep in mind that I didn't know any better.

I just want you to get a better understanding of who I am while gaining a more introspective look at my situation. Part of the reason I had such a hard time writing this was because whenever I tried to type what happened, my message became hostile and combative making it seem as though I had a total disregard for my actions and felt no sense of remorse for what I did. I feel that the combative tone of my story left people feeling as if I was trying to make excuses for my actions based off what other people did, or that I was trying to downplay my role in the situation. Yet, my motives for telling my side of the story were quite contrary. I now realize that if I say something the wrong way it will be taken the wrong way. And since I lack the knowledge to articulate what happened without saying what other people did, while managing to not vilify myself or give off a sarcastic tone in the process, I will refrain from saying what happened completely, in an attempt to avoid digging a deeper hole for myself.

I would first like to apologize to any and everyone I may have harmed while I committed the crimes I did. I had no intentions of hurting anyone nor at any point did I go out of my way to harm anyone while I was assaulting the two officers. Looking back I see I had no reason to be so difficult. I was simply too arrogant to let anyone do anything to me that I felt was unjust. I now see that my perception of right and wrong means nothing in the eyes of the law, and I must subjugate my behavior accordingly. I was not running because I was scared of incarceration, please keep in mind that at the time I felt as if I had done nothing wrong. I was merely running out of spite because at the time I felt as if I had been wrongfully bullied for not cooperating with police the way they wanted me to. I now see just how foolish I was for ever thinking such a notion was a reasonable explanation for my actions. I should cooperate with police regardless of what I feel, because at the end of the day its not about me its about the law. The law I just so happened to break because I was trying to show them I wasn't breaking the law. When I shouldn't have been trying to show them anything. If you were wondering why I kept running it's because I'm a good for nothing quitter. I had a chance to go back up there and cooperate but instead I chose to accept the fact that I had already messed up and that it was to late to fix anything. Its become very apparent to me that its never too late for anything and that I should have just stopped regardless of what I could have fixed. Because, once again, its not about me. A lot of things could have went very differently when I was confronted by the officers at Ferris if I had just used my better judgment and decided not to take things so personal.

The same thing can be said about my actions while in jail. I felt as if I had been wrongfully arrested. I thought I had been abused, betrayed, and abandoned by the justice system, which caused me to lash out at any and everyone wearing a badge. It wasn't until after talking to a Sergeant (I don't remember his name) that I realized that the officers in that jail had nothing to do with the officers who arrested me. After coming to this realization I had settled down. I finally gave up. While in jail however I did not spend one second thinking about the actions that landed me in jail or how I could improve on them in the future. I was still in the "wronged" mindset which caused me to deny a court appointed attorney completely out of spite for the system, regardless of the fact that my attorney had nothing to do with my arrest in the first place. The only thing I had learned at that point was that if I'm going to get arrested, make sure I do it when the court is open so I don't have to wait to post bond. The only thought I had on my mind was getting out of jail. I did feel a strong sense of regret for my actions but I had yet to feel even a hint of remorse. I just couldn't feel bad and cheated at the same time. This posed a strong problem with my parents and my counselor, Sam Gross. (I only had one meeting with him but don't need another. I understood what he had to say and what he diagnosed me with. I also understand he gets paid for what he does and that I have a host of other mental problems that I've had for longer than I remember. Most of my problems are not that serious, or at least serious enough to cause me or anyone else any trouble, especially from a legal standpoint. I must also add that since counselors get paid to help me, that it would be of no benefit to me mentally or financially to seek counseling just so a person can tell me things I already know about myself to fix problems neither I nor society cares about.) both of them advised me to lie in order to gain your leniency. I could have easily walked in the court room pouring tears begging everyone for forgiveness and making all types of useless promises. However I've always seen myself as a man of integrity and didn't want to lie to anyone for my own benefit. I'm still not sure if my cause is noble or just plain stupid. However, in an attempt to find something to be remorseful for, I finally did. It took a lot of thought and self examination but after days of meditation and self contemplation I was finally able to figure out what my problem was. I was an arrogant piece of trash. (and that's a very polite way of putting it) I now see the error in my ways and have even came up with a multitude of ways to adjust my behavior so nothing like this could ever happen again.

I was writing you this letter to ask you for leniency because I felt like I deserved a second chance. But if I'm going to be one hundred percent honest with you, I don't deserve anything. I assaulted two officers that night and I'm going to trial for assaulting two officers. I don't deserve to be awarded anything but a charge for assaulting two officers. But I've personally always been under the impression that punishments are not about what people deserve they are about what people need. When a man spits in your mothers face he deserves to be beaten, but he needs to learn that people shouldn't spit in other peoples faces. So, unless you think that beating him will undoubtedly change his view on spitting in your mother's face, what would stop him from spiting in someone elses face? Another beating perhaps? And even if that man where to get beaten for spitting in someone elses face it didn't prevent the person from spitting, making the beating pointless not only for the man but for the potential victims to come. The point of this analogy is to help you understand why I'm about to ask you for what

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

I'm asking you for. I know what I did was wrong and how can I fix it. I understand that my word isn't enough to show you that I'm a changed man, but I have yet to find a concrete way of assuring you of my change of heart. I also know that jail and prison both lack a (accurate) way to tell if someone will commit the same crime again. I can also attest from personal experience that incarceration does not adjust ones mindset positively or at least not for me. I was just mad to be in jail and happy to be out. If I had money I would ask for a fine instead of imprisonment. But all money charged to me would consequently be charged to my parents who had nothing to do with the mistakes I made and have already paid enough to our attorney. I just don't feel right about it. I also do not see any point in my incarceration if your only looking for improvement in my behavior. If your looking for some type of retribution instead of behavioral improvement, then I ask before you make your sentence to have the two officers assault me the same way I assaulted them; that would officially make things even. With that being said I never saw a point in getting even because I would rather have one victim than two. If I were in your shoes I would give me a conditional probation for a year. This would allow me to continue school as if nothing ever happened after proving to the court I am a changed man. I know this is a bold request on my part but if I'm going to ask for anything it might as well be something worth asking for. But since I'm not in charge nothing I say matters and what ever you say will be a just enough punishment for the crimes I committed.

Since you are asking for an opinion I will give you one:

  1. 1
    You are still coming off as defensive and sarcastic.
    Even though this is not your intent I only know that because you told me this was meant to be a sincere apology.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  2. 2
    Counseling is not to suck money out of the system and you would benefit from further counseling.
    If you had Cancer would you walk out of the doctor's office and think that just because you are aware of the cancer you are now cured? Mental health issues are nothing to mess around with or dismiss. You will never get anywhere in life until you learn how to cope and evaluate. These skills are learned through counseling.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  3. 3
    Your explanation of the events in question still needs less about how you were feeling and more about how you will not make that mistake again.
    FYI your explanation in this letter clearly points to the fact that you need counseling and anger management skills. You are not making informed decisions properly.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  4. 4
    Trying to explain that incarceration will not rehabilitate you is not the way to go.
    Incarceration is not just for rehabilitation but a sentence of your freedom in repayment for the crime. Saying that you will not be helped by jail time or counseling or a fine is further putting you into a place where the judge will want to teach you a lesson in reality. Your counselor and attorney both told you to plead a certain way and at this point it seems that is not a lie. You are battling a possible mental health disorder and though that is not an excuse you should be proving to the court that you are working on managing it.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  5. 5
    Cut the letter to three simple paragraphs.
    Apologize to the officers who you assaulted which that is actually a sign of integrity in the first paragraph. In the second paragraph explain that the counselor has given you a diagnosis and you are forming a treatment plan with him. (And actually do it!) In the third paragraph you can then request to be put into a mandated counseling program instead of incarceration so that you can correct your mental health issues appropriately. Ask the courts that if they impose a fine they allow a payment plan. Less is more when you are asking for leniency.

I am trying to compose a letter asking for leniency of the points on a speeding ticket?

Last weekend I got a speeding ticket. I was on my way to visit my 94year old mother in Syracuse from NYC. I take this trip multiple times a year, and for over 19 years I received no speeding tickets. Now I have received 2 in less than 12 months. I paid the first one but want to ask for leniency on the points assessed for this one since it might effect me renting a car. (I don't own a car). Advice is appreciated

Was this helpful? Yes | No | I need help

Write a letter apologizing for not obeying the speed limit. Mention that if you receive these points you will not be able to rent a car to see your ailing grandmother. Keep it simple and clear that you wish for leniency on points but are willing to pay the fine.

Not sure how to right letter to the court for citation notice to reduce the penalty?

Dear Courts,

I am writing this letter as an apology for my grave error in judgment as a parent. Unfortunately, my child has learned how to undo their restraint and I am working on teaching my child to remain seated and restrained while I am driving. I am requesting leniency based on the facts that I am rectifying the error made and will not allow this again. I completely understand the need for my child to remain in their car seat and the harm that can be done if there was a vehicular accident. This was a grave error as a parent and will never happen again. In the future, I will pull immediately over and correct the behavior of my child and not move the vehicle again until I know my child will remain in the car seat.

Should you always admit guilt for a speeding offense?

I have an upcoming court date. Should I admit guilt when writing the officer or the judge? Whom should I write to? the officer or the judge?

Most people plead not guilty because that means they can then plead out to a lighter fine or points infraction. Some even get away with no fines or penalties. You should only plead guilty in major offenses or if you were caught red handed driving distracted for instance.
