Curtis Fauntleroy started this petition to Governor Ralph S. Northam

Hi my name is Marcus Fauntleroy. I've been incarcerated since the age of 11 for which I served a juvenile life sentence that resulted into me getting an adult life sentence. I'm now a grown man at the age of 33. I'm currently serving a single life sentence for crimes that didn't include bodily harm nor murder. In 2007 I acted on the advice of my trial lawyer (B Thomas Reid) and pled guilty to carjacking, conspiracy to carjacking, and a firearm charge. I plead guilty because my legal advisor advised me that the court would be lenient upon me and that I would receive a lighter sentence of 3-5 years for doing so. I did the right thing by accepting responsibilities for my behavior as I was prepared to serve my sentence of 3-5 years. Like I've been told all my life I'm just a worthless black man who became a product of his environment. The judge in my case decided to take it upon himself to go beyond my sentencing guidelines and sentenced me to death in prison without any possibility of parole. It's formally known as (LWOP). I was shocked to the fact that I was given a life sentence for stealing a car and not physically hurting anyone. By taking the plea you would of thought I was avoiding the death penalty but this is not the case. Under the old law system (before 1995) people with life sentences served an advantage time of 18-19 years. That's all changed now. I'm serving more time than those incarcerated for heinous murders,rape,drugs ect. I took a plea in the blind begging for mercy of the court and ended up with a death sentence. I'm not saying that my actions were right we're only human and everybody makes mistakes wither it be big or small. Nobody should have to spend their life in prison from childhood age 11 years old until my dying date. This is very inhumane for a child/man to spend their entire life locked up in a cage with no way of rehabilitation or hopes of seeing the lights of freedom. I currently have a conditional pardon in to the governor of Virginia asking to be relieved of this torturous death sentence. We just ask you the people to help us in the fight for my freedom with sharing my story and signing my petition with hopes that it doesn't land on deaf ears. #FreedomForMarcusFauntleroy ��✊���✊���✊���✊���✊�
