11/12/20 - Sergeant Timothy J. Henck was 30 years old and a 9-year veteran when he was killed in the performance of his duty in 1995. Tim left behind his wife, Kathleen and their 6-week-old daughter, Jennifer. The man responsible, Arthur Adinolfi, Department Identification Number (DIN) 96A4871, was 37 years old and a career criminal. He was convicted of Murder 2 and sentenced to life in prison.
Adinolfi was given an early parole hearing on June 16, 2020.
Thanks to the tremendous showing of opposition, as a direct result of our last campaign, he was denied parole. Unfortunately, Tim’s killer is getting another hearing in early December.
As you can imagine, this is terribly traumatic for Kathy Henck and their family to have to go through this a mere six months later.
Kathy was told by the parole office of victim assistance that the incredible outpouring of public opposition to Adinolfi's release absolutely impacted the board’s decision to not release him in June.
We did it once, so let us do it again! We learned a lot from the process including that the electronic submissions are printed out and made a part of the hearing record.
Therefore, Kathy and I are asking everyone to take two minutes to complete the very short online form and let your opposition be heard. Please follow the link, https://doccs.ny.gov/form/letters-in-support-or-opposition, fill in the required information and submit. All submissions must be made before December 1, 2020.
The information required for the inmate as listed on the form is as follows.
DIN #: 96A4871
Last name: Adinolfi
First name: Arthur
Subject of your email: Opposition to parole
Comments: I reaffirm my opposition to this subject being paroled.
Please make any comments as you see fit.
Personal letters do yield significant impact with the parole board. If you would prefer to write and mail a letter, the address is below. Additionally, we have drafted a letter that is available on the Sgt. Timothy J. Henck tab on the SOA website for you to print and sign. We offer it on SOA letterhead for members or without letterhead for anyone else who would like to utilize a template. If you write your own letter, it is imperative that the prisoner’s name and DIN number are on the letter.
However you choose to participate, please do this as soon as possible as we want to ensure that the parole board receives everything prior to the hearing.
We will also be conducting another social media campaign to help us spread the word and show support to the Henck family. We have social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Parler and YouTube. The links for these can be found on the homepage of our website. Please share our posts if you utilize those platforms.
On behalf of the Henck family, thank you.
