Well folks, here is another story of injustice to women. Rhonda Brown is in prison in Florida. She was sentenced to 15 years for a crime her boyfriend committed. They were both under the influence of drugs at the time the robbery was committed. Rhonda did not have the gun. Her boyfriend did and he walked! No sentence for him! How is this possible? Rhonda has done half of her sentence already and has a great prison record with many certificates for classes she took and dealing with her substance abuse. She is applying for a clemency to reduce the sentence she got for a crime that her boyfriend committed. Although she is very sorry for her part in being there at a robbery where no one was injured or killed. Please sign this petition and show your support of early release for Rhonda. She has 2 children who need her at home and have been away from her for a long time. Her mother is taking care of her children and is a recent amputee with health problems and is struggling to care for herself and her grandchildren. Please help this family that deserves a second chance. Thank you!

I just signed the following petition addressed to: Honorable Members of the Florida Clemency Board.
Grant clemency for Rhonda Luise Brown DC 370963
Dear Honorable Members,
We are asking that you grant clemency for a commutation of sentence for Rhonda Louise Brown DC#370963. Rhonda had an addiction problem at the time of the crime and although she was not the perpetrator with the gun, she is extremely sorry for her part in a crime where no one was injured or killed. She has been a model inmate and many of her superiors can attest to that. She is a good person who made a mistake by being in a series of relationships with abusive men. Please commute her sentence and let her get back to raising her children and taking care of her mother who is a recent amputee caring for Rhonda’s children. The person who actually held the gun never served a day in prison and walked free. Please give Rhonda a second chance and let her go home to her family.
