Bureau of Prisons Dir. Thomas Kane Grant Compassionate Release for Jerry Lee Duval, Jr.

This petition had 4,878 supporters

More than $1.2 million will be spent to imprison Jerry Duval alone over the course of his 10-year mandatory minimum prison term. He is a state-registered medical marijuana patient who was convicted of federal drug trafficking, even though he strictly complied with all Michigan laws. The Bureau of Prisons has the authority to grant compassionate release due to "extraordinary and compelling circumstances" in Jerry's case, including the high cost of caring for a kidney-pancreas transplant recipient who also suffers from coronary artery disease. Please encourage the BOP to use the powers granted by Congress to relieve overcrowding and save tax dollars by releasing non-violent prisoners serving time for victimless crimes, starting with Jerry Duval.
