Open Letter About My Case

by Bobby Fratta (author's profile)


This is a copy of an open letter I wrote in the 1st half of 2004 about my case:

My name is Bobby Fratta. I was convicted in Harris County Texas for promising to pay someone who promised to pay someone else, who allegedly killed my wife; and subsequently I was sentenced to die.

After receiving my A.A. degree from college, I was employed as a ticket agent for American Airlines for over 5 years, and then as a firefighter/police officer/emergency care attendant for over 10 years. I also volunteered my services as a firefighter and dispatcher for the local Volunteer Fire Department and served as treasurer for my subdivision's Homeowner's Association. I am the proud father of 3 beautiful children, whom I love with all my heart. I coached their soccer teams for 3 years, gave safety lectures to all their classes at school, bought season passes for Astroworld/Waterworld every year and took them regularly, was very involved in all their school and extracurricular activities, and even took great pleasure in cutting their hair myself. Prior to my wife's death, I had never been in trouble with the law. I was a model citizen and good neighbour. I have never intentionally hurt anyone nor committed any acts of violence, yet here I sit on Texas Death Row.

I was totally shocked and hurt when my wife, Farah, suddenly filed for divorce on 2/27/92.
