Clemency Petition for Sherdell Dudley

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

We the members of the community sign this petition in support of the request for an Executive Clemency in the form of Sentence Commutation on the behalf of Sherdell Dudley Sr. #A527-735.

While awaiting trial for the charge of Aggravated Murder carrying a minimum sentence of 23 years to Life imprisonment, Sherdell was offered plea deals to reduced charges. Sherdell refused to accept a deal and plead guilty to a crime he did not commit.

At trial, Sherdell was found Not Guilty of the charge of Aggravated Murder. But he was found guilty of a lesser charge of Murder, resulting in a mandatory life sentence as a first time offender. His earliest parole review is November, 2023.

Despite being held fully accountable for a crime he did not commit, Sherdell has utilized the last 10 years as a tool for change. He has repudiated a prior lifestyle of drugs and alcoholism. Sherdell has completed countless programs, participating and taking full advantage of all positive activities available to him. His participation has elevated him to facilitating programs, becoming a Certified Tutor, helping other inmates to learn. Sherdell has even developed programs approved by the prison administration geared towards helping others out of a downward spiral and become successful citizens. His goal is to keep others from making the mistakes that he did.

He has steered clear of the troublesome prison lifestyle, and is regarded as a model inmate. He has resided in Honor Block Housing for 9 of his 10 years incarcerated.

A life sentence is far too much time for a crime Sherdell Dudley Sr. did not commit. Our community would be stronger with Sherdell Dudley in it. Send a message to Governor John Kasich that Sherdell Dudley’s prison sentence should be commuted, and he should be released from prison.

 Thank you for your support!!!
