I am asking for a sentence reduction I have done 30 months of a 72 month sentence never getting in trouble. Kept a steady job and programmed. I have never been to prison before and never done any jail time other than a weekend that was a catch and release dismissal. I am out on the cares act I have procured a job and a vehicle within the first 2 weeks of being free. I am still trouble free. I worked extremely hard while incarcerated as a lead cook and I work just as hard now as a lab technician. I have successfully integrated back into society but the restrictions of this program is a strain. It is set up for you to fail. I would like to cut my sentence and go straight to probation I’m not trying to give up my complete responsibility. I would like to be allowed more freedom to be successful. I grew up in foster care never really having anyone to care about what I did and I learned a lot of ways that weren’t the best to survive. While incarcerated I took my time seriously and did my own programming. I stayed in the library reading self help books and anything that would make me a better version of my self upon release so that I would never reoffend. I took my sentence very seriously and am grateful for all that I learned and experienced. I wouldn’t even take it back do to the amount I learned and grew. My eyes are open and I see the impact my life choices had on others and I’m apologetic to the fullest. I learned a great deal in jail about how my criminal activity is affecting the people around me. When I was distributing I never paid attention to the cons only to the pros. The money seemed good and I was never around long enough to see the aftermath of the actions I was taking. While incarcerated I met so many women who were addicts. They left the families behind siblings, parents, even children. I never understood the reality of it even though I had a prime example right in front of my face for years. I watched women coming down off drugs and I saw their life regrets on their faces when they woke up to reality. I saw them make promises they couldn’t keep for themselves. I saw them get out and come back all in the same breath while I hadn’t even left yet. I saw Hope shattered, loneliness, regret and humiliation. Even though I didn’t personally sell to them I was no different in my actions. I injured my family greatly by not being around in my incarceration. I missed my aunts passing and that was a lot to bare. My family went through personal struggles that I couldn’t help with. The world kept turning while I sat idle with no way of being any use to anyone. I was not a shoulder to cry on and I couldn’t give my 100% because I didn’t have access to freedom. I couldn’t lift burdens off my family or help anyone for that matter. I helped contribute to the same destruction that destroyed my mother in a sense because she’s an addict. What I thought was normal was nothing near Ok. I injured  America by being part of a network that is destroying it. Destroying youth, families, elderly. Every action has a reaction. People commit crimes to support there drug habits. I was in powering criminal activity by supplying things that people cant afford, so they committed crimes to pay for them in term I helped create more criminals and so on and so forth creating more loss in the community. I am ashamed that it took me to be put in prison to learn the impact of my behavior but also thankful for the chance to become a better person and version of myself. Please consider my petition for a commutation of sentence it is already pending So they’ve checked into it I would just like it to be granted thank you.
