Re:        Criminal Prosecution

Dear District Attorney Burke:

        Please have this letter and attached Affidavit serve as a formal request for immediate criminal prosecution of crimes committed against our family.

        Would you please schedule a meeting immediately with Senator Bruce Tarr, who has jurisdiction over the clerks of Middlesex Superior Court, and our family, so that we can discuss and document our claims for criminal prosecution more fully. We will provide the documents in support of the attached affidavit at that time.

        Thank you for your assistance.

            Very truly yours,



            John & Rhetta Sweeney
