Darrell has been in prison for 16 years and has no possibility of parole for non-violent, marijuana-only offenses, my uncle has been sentenced to die in prison because of a "three strikes" mandatory sentencing policy in the state.

Darrell is a Vietnam Vet who willingly sacrificed his life to protect and honor this country. A model prisoner with zero violet histroy. While serving his time, Darrell has watched violent criminals, rapists, and murderers serve their time and be released. Meanwhile all he wants to do is be a productive member of society, work, pay taxes, and love his family.

Being away from his home has caused Darrell precious time with his children, seeing his grandchildren grow, and missing out on so many milestones.

President Obama is the only one who has the power to bring this Father, Son, Grandfather, Uncle, Nephew and brother home. Grant Darrell clemency. Please help us reach a reasonable and just end to his prison sentence by signing and sharing this petition.

      The "three strikes" law is just nonsensical, and just another way to fill up for-profit prisons.

      Three strikes was never meant to put non-violent offense offenders behind bars for life.
