Emme Quinn started this petition to Governor J.B. Pritzker

At age 19, Michael Hill was sentenced excessively for 3rd degree murder- despite acting out of self defense. He had no other prior convictions and acted out of fear for his life. The minimum sentence for 1st degree murder is 20 years. Michael was given 25 years over the minimum, despite being a teenager with a brain that wasn't fully developed. Since being in prison, he has been incredibly well behaved and is genuinely one of the kindest people I have ever talked to. Whether or not you believe what he did was reasonable, you have to understand that he was given way too much time, period. Michael is just one of the many victims of our unjust justice system, and I ask that you show your support by signing this petition to hopefully get Michael's sentence reduced.
