PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP PARDON EDWIN RUBIS - 40 YEARS FOR A MARIJUANA CRIME WITHOUT POSSESSION IS NOT JUSTICE

Our son, father, uncle, grandfather, and friend is serving 40 years for a non-violent federal marijuana crime. [lastprisonerproject.org]
In 1998, while battling drug addiction, Edwin associated himself with marijuana dealers. After a Drug Enforcement investigation, Edwin's name came up. And Edwin was eventually apprehended by D.E.A. authorities.
During his arrest, Edwin was not in possession of any drugs, guns, or money, but was still charged with the federal crime of conspiracy, based on the testimony of those drug dealers.
Confident of his innocence, Edwin went to trial, unaware that he would receive 40 years in prison. Mainly for not cooperating with the government i.e. telling on others.
Edwin has been in prison for 23 years. All his appeals have been denied. We have done everything possible to reduce his sentence through every means imaginable to appeal to the courts in trying to reduce his sentence, including a clemency petition to President Barack Obama which was denied in 2016; as was Alice Marie Johnson's, and many others.
While imprisoned, Edwin's life has changed for the better. He long-ago overcame his drug addiction, and is now a devoted Christian. He recently completed a Master's degree in Christian Counseling, and is now working toward his Doctorate degree. He also serves as a mentor to other inmates, under the supervision of the head chaplain. Even prison officials have noted and praised his rehabilitative accomplishments.
We love our son, father, uncle, granfather, and friend. We wish for him to be released from prison. What he has been through is a great injustice. Please help us let President Donald Trump know that EDWIN RUBIS DESERVES A PARDON and a second chance at life. 23 years served in prison is way more than enough for a non-possession marijuana crime. Thank you and God Bless You! Maria Roque - and - Family. #pardonedwinrubis
