Petitioning President Barack Obama

Grant Clemency to Vietnam Veteran, Darrell Hayden, life in prison for non-violent marijuana only offenses


Darrell has been in prison for 16 years and has no possibility of parole for non-violent, marijuana-only offenses, my uncle has been sentenced to die in prison because of a "three strikes" mandatory sentencing policy in the state.

Darrell is a Vietnam Vet who willingly sacrificed his life to protect and honor this country. A model prisoner with zero violet histroy. While serving his time, Darrell has watched violent criminals, rapists, and murderers serve their time and be released. Meanwhile all he wants to do is be a productive member of society, work, pay taxes, and love his family.

Being away from his home has caused Darrell precious time with his children, seeing his grandchildren grow, and missing out on so many milestones.

President Obama is the only one who has the power to bring this Father, Son, Grandfather, Uncle, Nephew and brother home. Grant Darrell clemency. Please help us reach a reasonable and just end to his prison sentence by signing and sharing this petition.

Letter to
President Barack Obama
Please Grant Clemency for Darrell Hayden. My uncle is currently serving year 16 of a life sentence without the possibility of parole for non-violent marijuana only offences. He is a loving, kind-hearted, humble man who has served his time gracefully and deserves to be home with his family. You are the only one who can complete our family once again, and we ask you this from one family to another, give us Darrell back! Thank you for your time!
