Clemency for Bobby Wayne Reed serving Life sentence
This petition made change with 817 supporters!
My name is Braela Reed I am 22-years old and 20 years ago, my daddy Bobby Wayne Reed began serving a life sentence with no chance of parole as a first-time non-violent drug offender.
Bobby Reed was featured on the HBO VICE Special Report: Fixing the System where they brought to light that the United States Sentencing Commission has determined that federal sentencing guidelines under which my father was sentenced had flaws. President Obama has been commuting non violent drug offenders like my father because he knows the flaws in the system when it comes to sentencing minorities. My father understands he made a mistake but he doesn't deserve to die in prison.
Bobby Reed wasn't arrested with any drugs, weapons, or money..... he was sentenced based on the testimonies of three individuals. These three individuals testified against my father in exchange for a lesser sentence (which they received) and now all 3 individuals have been released from prison including 1 that who initially had a life sentence before testifying against my daddy.
He is a phenomenal father, brother, uncle, and role model to many always willing to help anyone he can. He does not deserve to spend all of his life in prison. We have a father daughter bond that can't be broken and just to think that my daddy could be spending the rest of his life in prison being a non-violent first time offender is heart breaking, he has missed many milestones in my life including both my high school and college graduation I would love for him to be here with me to cherish my next life changing event.
Please sign and share this petition to show your support to ask President Obama to reduce my daddy's sentence , it would be a blessing for his children, family, and friends to see my daddy outside those prison walls. He still has a life to live, things to experience, and a great impact on society he can make.
