Clemency for my dad, Dionysus Soubasis, who is serving 30 years for non-violent drug crime

This petition had 108 supporters

My name is Brianna and I am 23 years old. My dad, Dionysus Soubasis, is currently serving 30 years without the possibility of parole for first degree drug trafficking. He has been in prison most of my life and has missed every major milestone that I have accomplished. He missed seeing me go to all of my school dances, recitals, getting my license, graduating, getting married, the birth of my two children, who are now 6 and 2 years old, and every little thing in between. He has been incarcerated for 13 years now. Since his incarceration he has grown immensely, not only receiving his graduates degree in Theology but completing many courses and classes and achieving many goals. He also has accumulated over 4,137 hours at Missouri Vocational Enterprises in the Department of Corrections.

Dion was 28 years old when he went to prison and is now 41 years old. We are looking for people to support us in our quest for a clemency, a reduction in time for a non-violent crime. There are murderers, rapists and child molesters serving less time than some drug offenders. The justice system is flawed and needs to change. Please take a moment of your time and sign this petition to ask President Obama, the Missouri State Senate and Missouri Governor to grant my dad clemency. He's missed enough of my life, I hate seeing him miss out on watching his grandchildren grow as well.
