Grant Clemency Petition for Janet Danahey

Janet Danahey is one of the kindest, warmest, most wonderful people I have ever known. She was very influential on myself and many others in our high school years. This is a person whose life will affect tens of thousands of people for the better.

She made a horrible mistake then took responsibility for it. The result was a life sentence with no chance of parole.

******************UPDATE 2017************************

We are currently seeking to have Janet's sentence commuted under Executive Clemency as "time served" with this petition. She was given a slight reprieve from the outgoing Governor from a sentence of Life Without Parole to Life With Parole but we are seeking to take it an additional step. I wanted to update with some clarification. I am also removing some of the non-working links but adding links in the updates.

Thanks,

John

Janet paid for the crime with over fifteen years in prison. She deserves to contribute to society again from the outside.

 

There are few times in one's life when they are allowed the opportunity to speak up for someone who was simply trying to take responsbility and do the right thing.

Had the circumstances been weighed in front of a jury, the outcome would likely be far different.

Janet Danahey deserves a grant of clemency.

This petition will be delivered to:
  • Governor of North Carolina
  • North Carolina Governor
