Family Urges Judge Not to Re-Sentence Man on Death Row


The widow and two daughters of a man who was kidnapped, robbed and murdered three decades ago urged a judge Wednesday to reject a request by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office to vacate his killer’s death sentence and re-sentence him to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

“I have lived 30 years in the peace that the state of California gave to me,” Fred Rose’s widow, Sharon, told Superior Court Judge William Ryan. “I have also lived 30 years without Fred. Every second of my life — both practically and emotionally — has been affected by that.”

She said anything short of denying the request to re-sentence former Palmdale resident Scott Forrest Collins “would be to victimize my family again,” and urged the judge to “please take into account my wish that the request for re-sentencing not be granted.”
