Crystal Munoz has served over 9 years of a 19 year and 10 month sentence for conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute marijuana.
Crystal and I married in 1997 and had beautiful baby boy we named Ricci. Unfortunately, he choked at school and passed away at age 5. We were devastated, but had two beautiful young girls who are now 8 and 9.
In 2007, Crystal was arrested for "conspiracy" charges related to friends who had been convicted for trafficking marijuana and were serving 5-12 years. She was arrested based on the word of individuals who were seeking a sentence reduction -- no drugs were seized from her personally. She went to trial, not knowing anything about mandatory sentencing.
Crystal was pregnant with our second daughter when she went to prison. She came to the hospital to have the baby and was taken back the very next day! She wasn't allowed to spend time bonding and yet, our girls love their mother with their entire heart. I've been raising our two girls from that day forward and it has not been easy. They need their mother.
When I see them cry for their mom, it breaks my heart but this is our reality. I don't just say this because Crystal is my wife, and I love her and want her home... it's because I have yet to meet such a strong, loving and trusting person in my whole life. She has made me a better person through and through. She continues to encourage me and teach me to this day. If I could trade places with her, I would.
After 9 years in prison, I believe Crystal deserves mercy. We need more good people like her in this world and it makes no sense to spend taxpayer money keeping her in prison.
Please help by signing this petition and ask President Obama to grant Crystal Munoz clemency.
