WHO IS WAINSWORTH UNIQUE HALL?
On May 8, 1964, Wainsworth Marcellus “Unique” Hall was born to Aston Hall and Mary Garvey in Kingston, Jamaica.  Wainsworth’s great grandfather and Marcus Garvey’s father are brothers with the same mother and father.  Wainsworth’s mother, Mary Garvey, and Marcus Garvey are 1st cousins. In Kingston, Wainsworth grew up very poor, and on many occasions went to bed without eating.  On January 15, 1972, at 8 years old, Wainsworth and his siblings migrated to the United States of America arriving in New York City.

MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE
On June 27, 1994, during trial, a jury found Mr. Wainsworth Hall “NOT GUILTY” for unlawful distribution of cocaine, and money laundering.  On the remaining counts, the prosecutor gave the wrong jury instructions, and the jury found Wainsworth "Guilty" on NON-VIOLENT drug conspiracy charges.  The Jury instruction error violated Wainsworth's constitutional right to a fair trial, and due process.

THE SUPREME COURT REVERSED WAINSWORTH'S CONVICTION
The Supreme Court of the United States REVERSED the 4th Circuit erroneous jury instructions.  Wainsworth was supposed to receive a NEW TRIAL, because the incorrect jury instruction constitutes "plain error" that warrants a reversal of Conviction, See Fed.R.Crim.P. 52(b). The 4th Circuit ruled that the error in the jury instructions was a "Harmless Error", and refused to reverse the conviction and give Wainsworth a NEW TRIAL.

DEATH SENTENCE: SERVING LIFE WITHOUT PAROLE
Wainsworth Hall is serving a LIFE sentence as a non-violent drug offender.  The Federal system does not give inmates parole.  So, Wainsworth Hall was sentenced to DIE IN PRISON for his first ever felony offense. Wainsworth has spent 26 years in prison.  Today, based on the new laws, Wainsworth would be sentenced to 20 years, and is supposed to be home with his family and friends.

RE-ENTRY INTO THE COMMUNITY
Despite spending 26 years in prison, Wainsworth "Unique" Hall takes full responsibility for his actions, has no bitterness, and does not blame anyone else besides himself for the convictions.  Wainsworth Hall is well positioned to re-enter society as a productive citizen.  For the past 26 years of his incarceration, Wainsworth has been purposefully engaged in educational activities, vocational skills training, and re-entry programming, which is highly indicative of post-release success.

PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION
Lawyer Brittany Barnett, who works with Kim Kardashian, submitted a Clemency Petition to the White House.  Now, all Wainsworth need is YOUR SIGNATURE. Your signature lets the U.S. President know that Wainsworth has support from the community, which would encourage the President to sign the clemency petition.
