Happy birthday to Matthew Charles, who is celebrating behind bars after being forced to return to prison after serving over 20 years — as prosecutors say he was released by error. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He will have to serve the remainder of his 35 year sentence for a nonviolent drug offense unless President Trump grants him clemency. Wanna get him a #HBD gift? Sign the petition in bio to support his clemency! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Repost from @fammfoundation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #justice #matthewcharles #trump #clemency #cjreform #change #petition #incarceration
Matthew Charles was sentenced to 35 years in prison for a non-violent drug offense. After a judge reduced his sentence, he was released after serving over 20 years, continuing the model behavior he demonstrated in prison in the community. Unfortunately, prosecutors appealed the judge’s decision, and Charles was returned to prison. Sign this petition to have the president commute his sentence.
