A message from Assemblyman Brian Maher
Continued justice for Danny Meyer and continued peace for his family

In 1996, Danny Meyer, a 12-year-old boy, was murdered on his way to his all-star baseball game. Danny was a happy, kind, and bright boy whose life was ended too soon at the hands of his killer. Read more about Danny’s case here

A year later, his murderer, Juan Peinado was sentenced to prison for life with parole eligibility after 25 years of incarceration. Peinado was first up for parole in 2021, and after testimony from Danny’s family and overwhelming community support from individuals like you, Danny's killer was denied parole. However, the law gives this convicted murderer the right to parole hearings every two years and Peinado is scheduled for a parole hearing in August 2023.

Testifying to the parole board is a heart-wrenching process for Danny’s family. It revives still raw emotional wounds.

The murder of a child should grieve all of us, and such killers rob the beautiful contributions this life would have given to our society. Please consider advocating alongside Danny’s family for the denial of parole for Danny’s murderer. Sign this petition, and write directly to the NYS Board of Parole here. Please be sure to include Juan Peinado’s corrections identification number, DIN: 97A7185.
