Clemency for Corvain Cooper

This petition had 714 supporters

On June 18, 2014, Corvain T. Cooper was convicted in the United States District Court for the Western District of North Carolina in Charlotte for the crime of conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute marijuana and sentenced to life without the possibility of parole.  

When he was sent to prison for the rest of his life for selling marijuana, Corvain Cooper was 34 years old, a father to two young daughters, ages 4 and 8, a fiancee, a son, a friend, and a small business owner selling clothing and footwear.

Recently, the United States Supreme Court denied his appeal where he challenged his sentence of life imprisonment without parole for a non-violent drug offense as Cruel and Unusual Punishment.  Because the Supreme Court has allowed this sentence to stand, this man will never see his family again.

We have submitted an application for clemency with President Barack Obama, asking him to commute this grossly unjust sentence of life imprisonment for a non-violent drug offense.

Join us asking President Obama to stop the madness of mandatory life sentences for non-violent drug offenders, and commute Corvain Cooper's sentence so his daughters can grow up with a father.
