Antonio Floyd in 2002 at the age of 19 was sentenced to 51 years prison time for attempted murder. He has already served 19 of those years in the Kansas prison system. He has spent those 19 years turning his life around, not only for himself, but for his sisters, nieces and aunts. 

Antonio is 39 and will not be granted release until the age of 63.

We, his family, believe he has served his time and should be given clemency by Governor Laura Kelly.

A Letter From Antonio:

In 2002 at the age of 19 I committed attempted murder against Louise Brockman. I make no excuses for my actions and accept complete responsibility. The mistakes I made as an immature teenager have made an Impact on my whole adult life. My juvenile criminal history enhanced my sentence by 37 years... Without the enhancement I would have been released as early as 2017.. Due to this enhancement I received more then double time then most murders in the state of Kansas. At the time of my arrest I was under the influence of P.C.P which I did voluntary. My substance abuse had been an issue since i was a child and it turned me into a person who was unable to make smart decisions, a person who did not value the opportunity of being free, unable to build positive friendships/relationships, and a lack of direction. For my actions on November 5th 2002 I've asked Ms. Brockman for forgiveness. I expressed regret for causing her pain and suffering. I reached out and asked for forgiveness while I was participating in a voluntary Victims Impact class, and I was told that I had been forgiven. I don't expect for this to be erased from anyone's thoughts, but 18 years later I'm asking for mercy. As a 37 year old man I have been incarcerated longer than I have been free. My dream is to rejoin society and teach to the youth of Kansas that the choices that you make today will absolutely shape your tomorrow. Who better to preach that subject than someone who's life has been molded by yesterday’s mistakes.
