RE: Reco L. Williams – AIS# 174804
Elmore Correctional Facility
Parole Hearing Date: December 15, 2020
Dear Chairman and Parole Board Members,
Please DO NOT grant a parole date to convicted murderer Reco Williams, AIS# 174804. On October 7, 1992, Williams, along with two (2) co-offenders, Walter Bailey and Johnny Williams, stalked then brutally murdered Juwan Provitt (age 16). After an altercation earlier that day between Juwan and Walter Bailey, Bailey recruited Williams and Johnny Williams. They proceeded to Juwan’s home, parked around the corner and waited for him to come outside. When Juwan left the house and walked to the convenience store down the street, Reco Williams and his co-offenders followed him to the store, parked around back and waited for him to exit. They then ambushed Juwan from behind shooting him 10 times in the back and in the head. Williams was sentenced to 50 years in prison and is currently incarcerated at the Elmore Correctional Facility.
On December 15, 2020, Juwan Provitt’s family must relive the horrendous events that led to his brutal and senseless murder. As a result of Reco Williams’ complete disregard for human life and lack of conscience, justice demands that this convicted murderer be denied parole. Williams made the personal decision to stalk and then execute an innocent young man and must continue to accept the consequences of his actions. Juwan Provitt had a wonderful future ahead of him; God only knows the positive impact he could have made. Juwan does not get a second chance to live, he is gone forever. Therefore, Williams does not deserve a second chance or the privilege of freedom. Please deny parole to convicted murderer Reco L. Williams for the maximum time allowed by State of Alabama law.
Thank you for your consideration.
