Aside from issues of racial disparity in the case (see above article) the letter also mentions Taylor’s rehabilitation and faith conversion as he is very active in the prison Christian community and is a role model for other inmates. After his conversion, Taylor reached out to the widow of his victim, expressing his deep sorrow and regret for his actions. She accepted his apology and has forgiven him.
