To the Editor:
L.J. McCoy’s letter of last week applauded Gov. McAuliffe’s recent executive order restoring voting rights to convicted felons. I agree. However, the executive order also includes the right to serve on a jury, run for public office, and serve as a notary. I can’t imagine any grieving parent or crime victim wanting to see a convicted rapist or murderer seated as a member of a jury for their case. In fact, worse case, I can see a convicted felon using jury duty as an opportunity to “screw” the system that incarcerated them.
