Re: Chavez, Roger – CDC# H70157

       Correctional Training Facility (CTF) Soledad

       Parole Hearing Date: November 27, 2018

Dear Commissioner and Parole Board Member,

Please DO NOT grant a parole date to convicted murderer, Roger E. Chavez.

On September 13, 1992 (in San Francisco), Chavez brutally and repeatedly stabbed to death the mother of his infant daughter, Sharon Ann Taylor, age 37. Not only did he choose to take the life of a beautiful person, but his vicious and heartless actions left Sharon’s three (3) young children ages 14 yrs, 11 yrs, and 10 months old without their Mother and family home. Since that day, the lives of her children and those who were blessed to know Sharon Taylor were tragically changed forever.

Chavez negated full accountability for his actions for over 20 years, denying his role in the brutal murder of Sharon Taylor. At his most recent hearing, Chavez miraculously recalled all events of that night in question. However, it was not to accept responsibility or because he developed a conscience, but rather to manipulate a release from prison.

On November 27, 2018, Sharon Ann Taylor’s family and friends will have to endure the pain and uncertainty of another parole hearing. Of grave concern is Chavez’s established record of violence/domestic violence. He continues to be a danger to women and a threat to public safety. The victim’s family and friends should not have to live in fear for their safety just so another violent criminal can be released from prison.


Roger E. Chavez must be held accountable for his personal choice to execute an innocent young mother and must accept the consequences of his actions. Due to the heinous nature and the brutality of his crime, justice demands this convicted murderer be denied parole. He must remain in prison for the maximum time allowed by State of California law.

Thank you for your consideration.
