PETITION FOR RELEASE

S.O.S!.....S.O.S!.....S.O.S! 

IS ANYBODY OUT THERE ? IF YOU CAN HEAR THIS DISTRESS CALL. PLEASE! HELP ME! BECAUSE AT THIS POINT I DONT KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO.

IN ORDER FOR ONE TO UNDERSTAND MY PRESENT PREDICAMENT , IT IS IMPORTANT THAT ONE KNOWS MY PAST. THIS IS NOT A ONESIDED STORY IN WHICH IM GOING TO TELL YOU THAT IM INNOCENT. IN FACT ITS THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE, I AM GUILTY AS CHARGED ..

I AM BY NO STRETCH OF THE IMAGINATION AN ANGEL, BUT IN THE SAME SENSE I AM NO DEVIL EITHER, IM JUST HUMAN..

MY NAME IS JESSIE JAMES ASKEW JR , AND FOR THE TIME BEING I AM A INMATE AT TELFAIR STATE PRISON IN HELENA GEORGIA. IN 1997 I WAS CHARGED WITH ARMED ROBBERY ON A MULTIMULTI-COUNT INDICTMENT(97-C-23657), BY THE SUPERIOR COURT OF HOUSTON COUNTY.

AFTER I WAS CONVICTED IN TRIAL BY JURY ON JANUARY 30TH 1998. THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY (KELLY BURKE) DISCLOSED TO THE COURT THAT THE STATE WOULD BE SEEKING LIFE WITHOUT THE POSSIBILITY PAROLE UNDER THE RECIDIVIST.

THE JUDGES RESPONSE TO THAT WAS , WHOA ! WAIT! I NEED TO GO SEE WHERE THE LAW SAYS I HAVE TO GIVE HIM THAT TIME...

THE JUDGE RESPONDED IN THAT MANNER BECAUSE I HAD NO PRIOR VIOLENT CRIMINAL HISTORY AND THE 1997 SENTENCING GUIDELINES ONLY CALLED FOR A MAXIMUM OF 20 YEARS....

AND IT WAS SO , THE JUDGE SENTENCED ME TO LIFE IN PRISON WITHOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF PAROLE .

ON JUNE 9TH 2014 FORMER HOUSTON COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY KELLY BURKE SUBMITTED A SWORN AFFIDAVIT ON MY BEHALF TO GET MY SENTENCED REDUCED TO 15 YEARS AND STATED " I FELT LIKE THIS WAS THE MOST DISPROPORTIONATE SENTENCE THAT MY OFFICE HAD EVER IMPOSED , INAPPROPRIATE BASED UPON HIS AGE , HIS NON VIOLENT CRIMINAL HISTORY UP TO THAT POINT AND THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF THE CASE . THE FACT HIS CO-DEFENDANT WHO WAS JUST AS CULPABLE HAD RECIEVED A TEN YEAR SENTENCE".       

PROVERBS 18:21 DEATH AND LIFE ARE IN THE POWER OF THE TONGUE..                    THIS FACT HAS BEEN PROVEN TRUE IN MY SITUATION, WHERE AS MR BURKES WORDS WERE POWERFUL ENOUGH TO TAKE MY LIFE ,TYING THE HANDS OF THE JUDGE IN MY SENTENCING, THEY SHOULD BE AS POWERFUL THROUGH HIS SWORN AFFIDAVIT.. UNTYING THE KNOT OF AN UNJUST SENTENCING..      

BACK IN DECEMBER OF 2018 , CHRISTOPHER WILLIAMS WAS FREED BY A JUDGE AND DISTRICT ATTORNEY IN DEKALB COUNTY, GA. AFTER 19 YEARS OF INPRISONMENT FOR HIS ROLE IN A ARMED ROBBERY AT A DEKALB COUNTY LIQUOR STORE.

OUR CASES ARE IDENTICAL , WE BOTH WERE CHARGED WITH ARMED ROBBERY , NONE OF THE VICTIMS GOT HURT OR KILLED AND BOTH OUR CO-DEFENDANTS GOT 10 YEARS WHILE WE GOT LIFE IN PRISON WITHOUT PAROLE..

THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS CHRISTOPHER WILLIAMS HAD A PRIOR ARMED ROBBERY WHERE AS I NEVER HAD A VIOLENT CRIME..

ALL IM ASKING FOR IS "JUST MERCY"..

S.O.S!......S.O.S!......S.O.S!    CAN ANYBODY HELP ME?
