20 year old Sean Kennedy had everything to live for. He was young, good looking, had a great personality and was well liked. He was just at the precipice of adulthood and had a world of possibilities open before him.

Then, on the night of May 16, 2007 at about 3:45 am, all of that ended with a brutal, homophobic attack outside a Greenville County, S.C. bar. In his mother's own words, this is what happened that night:

...a car pulled up beside him, a young man got out of the car, came around the car approached my son and called him fagot and then punched him so hard that it broke his face bones, he fell back and hit the asphalt. This resulted in his brain to be separated from his brain stem and ricochet in his head. Sean never had a chance. Sean's killer got back into the car and left my son dying there.

According to a report posted at Box Turtle Bulletin on June 11, 2008, the killer then called a friend of Sean's about 15 minutes after the attack and left the following message:

Hey. (laughter) Whoa stop. (laughter) Hey, I was just wondering how your boyfriend’s feeling right about now. (laughter) (??) knocked the f— out. (laughter). The f—— faggot. He ought to never stick his mother-f—— nose (??) Where are you going? Just a minute. (laughter). Yea boy, your boy is knocked out, man. The mother——-. Tell him he owes me $500.00 for breaking my god—- hand on his teeth that f—— bitch”

In a shockingly lenient ruling, Stephen Andrew Moller was convicted of Sean's murder on a reduced charge of involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to only three years, minus seven months for time served.

Box Turtle Bulletin reported today that Moller's attorney said that when all was said and done, he expects Moller to serve only 18 MONTHS in jail! With credit for time served, he was due to be released in September 2009.

But now, since South Carolina has no hate crimes law that would have allowed for a more serious and appropriate sentence, Moller will actually be up for parole NEXT MONTH!

This is not only outrageous, it's totally unacceptable! Because of this travesty, Sean's mother, Elke Kennedy is asking for our help...

The parole board is currently conducting an investigation to decide whether to allow him to have a parole hearing, so it is critical that they hear from you that Stephen Andrew Moller violently murdered Sean Kennedy and should serve the remainder of his sentence!

Please consider writing a letter to the parole board and ask them to deny Stephen Moller parole and serve out his sentence. In your letter, please remind the board of the violent and unprovoked nature of Moller’s offense and the pain and suffering it has caused in the lives of Sean Kennedy’s family and friends. If you have the time, please write a personal letter by hand or by computer, as those will be the most effective, and if you knew Sean or his family personally, please include that information.

Also, please let Elke know if you send a letter and if possible, send her a copy of the letter, so she can have copies to take with her to the parole hearing.

Be sure to include Moller’s full name and ID number:
Stephen Andrew Moller - SCDC ID # 00328891.

Send your letters to:
Department of Probation Pardon and Parole Services
2221 Devine Street, Suite 600, PO Box 50666
Columbia SC 29250

Please forward to your contacts, friends and family.
Thank you for all of your support!

Please take a few minutes out of your day and do whatever you can to prevent Moller from getting away with serving LESS THAN A YEAR for this heinous, homophobic murder.
