Fair Sentencing for All Defendants 

(See Judge Headen Remarks in the above You Tube video at 56:57)

"When equal justice is threatened or at risk for any of us, it is threatened or at risk for all of us." Judge Ray Headen, Ohio 8th District Court of Appeals covering all of Cuyahoga County.

Long before George Floyd, Judge Ray Headen and Ohio Supreme Court Justice Michael Donnelly came together to add their voices to those of the Ohio Sentencing Commission in support of the Ohio General Assembly enacting legislation to create a statewide criminal sentencing database that will help set fair standards for all defendants, regardless of the color of their skin or the money in their wallets.

Now as a result of their efforts - in less than one year – the Chief Justice of the Ohio Supreme Court, the Ohio Attorney General, metropolitan bar associations throughout Ohio, judges, lawyers, and elected officials throughout Ohio have taken up their cause. The leaders are adding their voices to fight against systematic and implicit racism in judicial sentencing.

The result? 

·         Deserving criminals get the punishment they should; and

·         Excessive and unnecessary incarcerations are reduced;

o   Saving citizens from extra years behind bars

o   Saving taxpayers’ billions of dollars spent on overcrowded jails

Sign the Petition and Push the Ohio General Assembly to Enact a Statewide Criminal Sentencing Database.

Your voice and that of your friends are needed. The first time there was a call for a sentencing database was more than 25 years ago. Similar calls have come and gone since then and each time nothing has happened - that is until Justice Donnelly and Judge Ray Headen took up this cause this year.

Please sign the virtual petition and continue the movement.
