Getting my husband home

Thank you in advance for reading and helping anyway you can.

I'm doing this on behalf of my husband. Back in 2005 he did commit a crime of burglary. He's a non violent offender meaning he doesn't hurt anyone physically in his crime. What did happen is he did this crime with others and he was a black man in Winchester VA. This was a high profile case because his codefendants did the unthinkable by raping a woman that was there. My husband saw this and starting fighting the people off of her. She wanted to help my husband in his case, her statement was never used, forensics showed he didn't do it and that he didn't use a gun. The DA wanted him to take a deal or they would give him the max on everything no matter what he did or didn't do. Well that's exactly what they did they gave him 53 years with 30 suspended and he also has to be on probation for 5 years once he's released. The girl he helped wrote a letter and thanked him and he sent to the governor and they said they would investigate and a year later sent him a letter saying they couldn't do anything. His case shows discrepancies and we can prove it we just want someone to take the time and read it and help us. Please share, sign whatever you can to get to as many people as we can and maybe it will get to the right person.
