Stephanie Riley started this petition to Florida Governor and

My son Markell went over this young ladies home who happened to be a addict to get the money owed him for drugs. She said she didn't want to leave her kids at home so for him Markell to take her debit card and to bring back a receipt. So Markell did. When Markell returned he was surrounded by the police. She told them he had a gun and robbed her. Since when does a robber go back to the scene with the receipt and debit card which is evidence. My son even showed the police the receipt and debit card he returned with. There was never a gun found. So they got him on 3 strikes. Therefore he is serving a life sentence because she lied and they believed her. They did not find a gun because there was never a gun used. For her to lie like this is sad! She fails to relies she has cost Markell his life and I don't think she cares. I am asking for mercy for Markell.  Please sign this petition in the hope my son can get a pardon or time served he has served 17 years already. He went in when he was 23 yrs old he is now 40 yrs old. He did not rob this woman and no my son should not have been selling drugs but a life sentence is not appropriate. Even killers and rapist get out of jail. I find this sentence very harsh. Help me help my son Markell Lee Johnson.
