A Parole Protest Petition

Parole Protest Petition: Keep Brandon Threet in prison

  • Brandon Threet ambushed and assaulted Terence McArdle on October 7, 2001. Six days later, on October 13, 2001, Terence died of massive head injuries.
  • Brandon Threet, convicted of manslaughter with a deadly weapon, was sentenced on July 22, 2002 to serve 20 years in prison and fined $10,000.
  • Brandon Threet has never taken responsibility for his violent crime in the past seventeen years. He has appealed to every court available to him even up to the U.S. Supreme Court. In each case, his appeal was DENIED.
  • Brandon Threet's 2012 parole request was DENIED on 9/12/2012 due to the NATURE OF THE OFFENSE.
  • Brandon Threet's 2015 parole request was DENIED on 10/1/2015 due to the NATURE OF THE OFFENSE.
  • Brandon Threet's 2017 parole request was DENIED on 11/13/2017 due to the NATURE OF THE OFFENSE.
  • The Parole Board DENIED the offender's request due to the NATURE OF THE OFFENSE described as:
          "The record indicates the instant offense has elements of brutality, violence, assaultive behavior or conscious selection of victim's vulnerability indicating a conscious disregard for the lives, safety or property of others, such that the offender poses a continuing threat to public safety."
  • On November 14th, 2017, CBS Austin aired an interview with Brandon Threet where he stated in the interview article that the crime was "a fistfight turned bad". He never once mentioned Terence's name nor the fact that he ambushed, assaulted and kicked Terence in the head and killed him. 
  • Brandon Threet will be up for parole review again in the next few weeks. If granted, he could be out of prison by November 2019. 
  • Voice your concerns and urge the Parole Board to DENY Brandon Threet's parole application.
  • Keep Brandon Threet in prison where he belongs.

Parole Protest Petitions will be kept in strict confidentiality.

Brandon Threet and his attorneys are NOT allowed to read
