A nonviolent drug offense with a federal life sentence. Clemency for Stevie Jackson

This petition had 1,041 supporters

Hello, My name is Misty Smith and this is a petition to help with an appeal for the father of my children StevieJackson:

Since starting this petition a lot has changed. If you’re not familiar Stevie has been incarcerated now for 12 years. In those years he has not been able to see his family until recently he was transferred to Louisiana and got a chance to see most of his kids and his immediate family members. He’s been down since 2006. My daughter ( his oldest daughter was 6 at the time, she’s 19 now. He has been incarcerated for a while now but he’s still staying positive and hopeful. Stevie was sentenced to life in federal prison under an old law. Since he has been incarcerated that law has been removed but at the time of his sentencing that law was still in affect. Which means he is never coming home for a nonviolent crime..that's why I'm asking for signatures to present for possible clemency. He has exhausted all of his appeals but we are going to trying to bring him home. Over the years Stevie has had plenty of time to think and reflect. He has obtained several certificates and is now working on a culinary trade. He has been teaching ceramics and doing so well staying so positive.  I hope and pray that someone have mercy on us and God blesses him with clemency. He has paid the ultimate price, his life, not being there for all his kids. Please help us and sign and share our petition. To over turn his conviction under an unjust unreasonable law that no longer exist. No one that has been sentenced under a nonviolent crime should be incarcerated for life. Stevie didn’t just get life but life in FEDERAL prison. How? Murderers and child molesters should be doing life in prison don’t you agree? Not Stevie. He has such a big heart and doesn’t deserve this kind of punishment. Please help us. If you have any question for me or can give me any advise of what other steps we can take to bring Stevie home to us, please send me a message. Thank you for your support and prayers
