Alexia Chambers-Helm started this petition to Illinois Govenor Pat Quinn (Govenor of Illinois)

Nancy Rish has been incarcerated for 27 years on a life with no parole for  the kidnapping and murder of Stephen Small..The crime was committed by Danny Edwards who signed affidavits then and now stating he worked alone and Nancy was not knowingly involved...Danny Edwards received Death Penalty but his sentence was over turned and commuted to Life with no possibility of Parole...With no evidence to link her to the crime what so ever she is serving the same sentence the admitted killer is serving..Even if she had knowledge how does she have same sentence as the actual kidnapper/murderer..27 years is long enough! Nancy has maintained her faith in God, has done so much during incarceration as far as school, receiving degrees and even is in Helping Paws Program, as well as certified dog groomer. Currently Nancy is working in maintenance tool room and responsible for distributing and keeping accurate inventory of thousands of tools..Nancy has proven that she, if released would be a useful member of society. Her elderly mother is not in good health and needs her at home with her..Nancy has maintained a relationship with her son, grandsons and rest of family...Nancy has never sat around asking Why Me?  Actually quite the opposite..used her time to excel and mentor others..27 years is long time especially when you are innocent..Please sign this petition to #FreeNancyRish and let our Governor see we are on her side and Justice must be done.
