I’m from Louisville,Kentucky. In 1996 at the age of 20 year’s old, I was convicted of multiple bank robberies and 924(c) gun charge’s and sentenced to 226 years in the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
This is my first time incarceration in prison.
My projected release date is July 4th, 2160.
I’ll be 246 years old when I’m scheduled to be released! Which is obviously impossible for anyone in this case with such a harsh, cruel and unusual punishment.
I’m seeking humbly to have a reevaluation for this sentencing. I’m seeking fair humane sentencing in the weight of this matter. I take full responsibility for my actions, and without a shadow of doubt I am truly remorseful for all and any damage that I have caused do to my actions.
I would like to mention, with all do respect to those affected by this that no one was physically injured. Just to clarify that to those who might have any curiosity about the situation. I pray to be able to receive a sentencing reduction by the U.S Federal Courts. I was very young at the time of my conviction. Unaware that I would receive this type of sentencing until things were quickly said and done, in a unfair speedy trial. Without knowing much about law, and having never been involved in such a matter, I was completely unaware of what my options were during my trial.
I am now almost 40 years old, with grandchildren. My goal is to be able to live out the rest of my life if granted freedom, teaching my grand-kids if not great-grandchildren that life is very precious, and never should be taken for granted. We all make mistakes as humans. At the time years ago I never quite understood or ever thought the lifestyle I was leading would land me here. Confined 23 hours a day everyday of my life for a very costly mistake. This is not a way to plea for my innocence.
As I stated earlier I take full responsibility for my actions.
I just know that I am a changed individual and I have felt remorseful and sorry everyday of my life for my actions. I hope to someday be able to be a valuable contributor to society as a decent human being. Each day I continue to be a mentor to my kids, Daughter and Son and their children, my grandchildren. Although it’s not easy given the circumstances.
I remind them as much as I can that I have always loved them and want what is best for them. And to learn from my life experiences.I hope to be able to prove to them as well as the Judicial System that I am truly a changed man, and very much reformed, rehabilitated, and a responsible human being. I hope that anyone reading this will understand and support my cause for seeking fair justice and a second chance at life on the outside of prison, so that I can show that I really can be a productive, positive influence to my family and to society.
Thank You For Your Time And Concern.
