To whom it may concern:
Hello, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Willie Sawyer, Inmate number 52454-066. I'm currently serving a 454 month (37 years 10 months) sentence for armed bank robbery and attempted armed bank robbery, I have been incarcerated for almost 20 years, I have been in prison since 1998, and this is my first adult felony conviction. I received a consecutive sentence for a combination of 924c convictions. I was charged with an actual robbery in which I received 12 years for where the bank was actually robbed and no one was harmed. I also received 25 years for a setup bank robbery which never happened, I never made it to a bank, I got arrested miles away from the nearest bank, there were no victims, no lives were put in jeopardy, yet in still I received an extra 25 years for this alleged attempted robbery. I was the getaway driver however I never got arrested in possession of a firearm. I was never offered a plea deal although I asked my lawyer if I could plea out to the robbery that was committed and not the one that was attempted but he told me that there were no plea deals except to cooperate against my co defendant and other crimes that I allegedly knew about, in which I refused to do, and I believe that I was punished for going to trial which is my constitutional right. Since my incarceration, I have been employed at the federal prison industries (UNICOR) for most of my entire incarceration and am in fact still currently working in UNICOR right now. I have been a photographer, referee and official, in prison and for the community as well. I have completed numerous programs which include and receiving Microsoft office certifications for excel and word. I'm proficiently skilled in SAP, received college credits, and I am a couple credits away from achieving and receiving my associates degree. My institution record for the past 20 years is almost impeccable, however, I have received 3 incidents reports which neither of them were for violent or serious offenses.
I was only 24 years old when I came to prison with 1 son who was 5 at the time. I will be 44 years old in September, my son will be 25 in September as well, and I now have a grandson who is 3 years old. I would love to get out and be a productive citizen and help raise my grandson since I missed my son’s childhood. During my incarceration my health has and continues to deteriorate. I have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart problems, sleep apnea, and blood clots in my lungs and my legs for which the doctors tell me that I will be on blood thinners for the rest of my life. When I came in 20 years ago, I was a care level 1 and now I'm a care level 3. I'm looking for some help in my situation and would greatly appreciate if you can be a help me. I have a clemency petition in which I could use some help in getting some attention. I admit to being guilty but do not believe that I deserved being sentenced to 37 years. I ask that you research my case, which is public records, and see that I am telling the truth regarding the facts of my situation. There are rapist and murderers who have gotten less time then I have received and am currently serving. I'm not saying my crime is any less but I did my time for what actually happened and believe that my sentencing was unjust. I have paid dearly for my crime and regret both my poor decisions and actions and the harm I have caused to all involved including the harm, pain, and disappointment to my family, friends, and my community. I believe if given a “second chance” that I would be useful and effective for my community in that I desires to be an advocate for “wayward teens” and teaching teens what poor decisions (crime) can do to themselves, their families, and society as a whole and I so much desire to help raise my grandson to not follow in the same path. Please if you care to help or hear me out you can reach me at Willie Sawyer 52454-066 , Federal Medical Center Lexington, PO Box 14500 , Lexington Ky, 40512. Thank your for reading my letter and Thank you in advance, should you decide to help.
