Stop unjust prison sentencing in California.
Miles York is 23-years-old. He has served over 3 years of a 7-year prison sentence in a California state prison for being a passenger in a car that drove his friend to a marijuana dispensary where a robbery was attempted. No property was stolen. No one was hurt. Miles was not armed and has no criminal history
Miles sentence was unjustly harsh based on his level of involvement. Miles genuinely regrets his involvement with his friends and has learned a very hard lesson. He has matured during this time. He is extremely focused with his plans for creating a successful life for himself when he is free.
We are asking Governor Jerry Brown to grant Miles an early release from Prison. Having Miles serve more prison time is a waste of tax payers’ money as well as a waste of this young man’s life. There is no benefit for anyone in making Miles spend 3 more years in prison.
