Kelvin Johnson Jr. started this petition to Alabama Bureau of Pardons and Paroles

Kelvin Andrew Johnson was 19 years old when he committed the offense on August 13, 1996. He's 43 years old now and has been in the custody of the Alabama Department of Corrections for 24 years. Prior to the offense, Mr. Johnson had no criminal history. He graduated from Tarrant High School and was attending Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University. 

Kelvin is the youngest of seven children born to Mrs. Johnnie Johnson and the late Mr. Clyde Johnson. Other than Kelvin, none of the Johnson's family has had any criminal history.

In addition, Kelvin himself has a 24 year old son: Kelvin Andrew Johnson, Jr. born October 10, 1996. Kelvin Jr. has never known his father to be free from custody.

Mrs. Johnson is 84 years old and lives alone in Birmingham. It is the hope and desire of the Johnson's family to have Kelvin live with her if paroled. In addition, an older sibling, Mark, has offered to have Kelvin live with him and his family in Oak Mountain if parole is granted. All family members have agreed to assist Kelvin with all the basic essentials needed to ensure a smooth and successful transition.

The Board previously considered Kelvin for parole in August of 2007, December of 2012 and February of 2018 and denied the request each time.

Mr. Johnson is currently placed at the less restrictive custody level, Level Two Medium-out, within the Alabama Department of Corrections. 

Kelvin has also been conditionally accepted into Alabama Re-entry and Success Center (I.e. ARC), located in Bessemer, Alabama, a six month program for a person like Mr. Johnson to re-enter into society from being in prison and get the necessary tools to succeed.

We, the assignees, respectfully ask that this honorable board consider this humble request. We are thoroughly confident that Kelvin Andrew Johnson has a unique opportunity to give back to our community through a successful parole.
