- Chief Judge Rosanna Malouf Peterson
Emergency Petition for Sentencing Leniency
On May 27, 2015, in Spokane, Washington, U.S.A., Daniel Smith was convicted of introducing a misbranded drug into interstate commerce, importing a misbranded drug contrary to law, and a conspiracy to do these things.
He now faces anywhere from 0-34 years in prison, entirely at the discretion of the Judge. His conviction followed as a result of his attorney failing to present a defense after admitting, on the record, his decision to not do so was not strategic, but for lack of preparation and being an “uninformed lawyer”.
The alleged drug Daniel Smith's company, Project Greenlife, sold was “MMS” – or sodium chlorite solution – an otherwise non-controlled and ubiquitous water purifying substance available in almost every country for decades, and which may be used to safely generate chlorite or chlorine dioxide for private, in-home use to eradicate disease-causing pathogens, like yeast, mold, fungus, viruses and bacteria.
Daniel Smith is a compassionate family man with four children, one grandchild, and a burden to ease the suffering of humanity. He is also a champion for natural health freedom, and seeks to bring about needed change in our legal system, but he needs his freedom to do so.
This emergency petition, addressed to the Chief Judge presiding over Daniel Smith's case, asks her Honor to exercise her discretion to grant a variance of extreme leniency, and to restore Daniel Smith to his family and our world community.
Daniel has already spent almost three years in one form of detention or another, including the last five months in a county jail. Please sign this emergency petition and very respectfully ask her Honor to exercise leniency in Daniel's sentencing this October 27, 2015.
If MMS or Daniel, or his company, has had a positive impact on your life or the life of a loved one, please share this with the Judge in the comment section when you sign this petition. Please Tweet, Facebook and spread this petition far and wide, as we only have about 9 days.
You can see Daniel and his family, and read more about his story, at StandByDaniel.com. Thank you for your support.

Petition for Sentencing Leniency
Dear Chief Judge Rosanna Malouf Peterson,
We the People, representing a diverse cross-section of the World community, humbly beseech your Honor to accept these, our many signatures, as representative of a Majority seeking a broad variance of leniency in your sentencing of Daniel Smith this October 27, 2015.
As you are undoubtedly aware, Mr. Smith is not a violent offender, has no criminal history, and the acts for which he has been found guilty in the absence of a proper defense are not heinous but political in nature, bearing upon an earnest desire to help humanity and ease world suffering.
As a Chief Federal Judge, we ask that you temper an understandable yet natural bias for the letter of the law with Justice and Mercy. Also that you not allow Daniel Smith and his family to suffer any further needless loss of his liberty, especially as punishment for technicalities of law. Please don’t visit upon him and his loved ones retribution for his exercise of the right to a trial, for representing himself pro se or waging a valiant fight.
Please consider that each of his co-defendants were offered misdemeanors and given probation and fines only.
Mr. Smith has spent almost six months in incarceration already and almost 2 ½ years in home detention for his company's role in providing a product, MMS, that has benefited countless of our lives all around the world. We ask that our interests, the interests of the real public, who willingly have come forward on Daniel's behalf, be served now – more than a political interest of those purporting to serve our interests. We implore you to ensure that the ends and means of Justice be fulfilled, as it is meant to be, at your hand today.
We pray now that you grant our request for this extraordinary relief, and restore Louis Daniel Smith to his family and our World community without further delay.
Thank you, your Honor.
