Petition for Time Served through Clemency for Eric Lightner and Brian and William Lee

This petition had 786 supporters

Twenty-five years ago, Eric Lightner, Brian Lee and William Lee were convicted of homicide despite little to no evidence against them. This happened in the summer of 1992, during a time of great social unrest in Denver, which the District Attorney, at the time used, as an example in his fight against crime. Despite spending the last twenty-five years in one of most violent prisons in Colorado. These three men have become model inmates and have used their time to learn trades that would prepare them for employment opportunities upon their release. They would serve as great mentors to other young adults on how not to become a product of their environment.

We are collecting signatures in hopes of the privilege from Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper to grant clemency, so that these men can have a second chance at being productive members of society.
