It angers me to see a person convicted of first-degree murder and armed robbery being considered for a parole after he received multiple life sentences from a jury. Even more so when he has exhausted his appeals, in which all of them have resulted in "denied" decisions from higher courts.

Most recently, June 30, 2006, United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, Southern Division. This decision goes on to state:

"Petitioner (Efran) ignores the fact that there was abundant evidence in addition to Mui's testimony that would prove his identity as the perpetrator beyond a reasonable doubt".

He has made his appeals, he has had many years and several attempts to prove his innocence (which he still claims even after every court has disagreed).

Let Rick Tetzlaff have justice. Let the Tetzlaff family have the justice they received back in 1989. Let Efran serve out his sentence as defined by the court and passed down from the jury. Give the Tetzlaff family the only thing they still have, a murderer held accountable for his crime.
