At sentencing, Judge Markle added the condition of criminal banishment to Luke’s probation. For all eight years of his probation, Luke will be exiled from the state of Georgia, with the exception of one judicial district – that of Screven county, and in turn, his family and closest friends. For more information on criminal banishment and the unusual nature of its inclusion in Luke’s sentence click here.
All of Luke’s supporters are encouraged to print and fill out one of these postcards, or hand write their own, and mail them to Judge Markle, demanding that he remove the condition of banishment from Luke’s probation.
