I am reaching out to you in hopes that perhaps you can provide me with some resources to assist me in my fight for freedom. I just need someone who genuinely cares and is dedicated to the cause of helping those incarcerated. I'd like to create an on-line petition designed and created for my cause. I am sending the outlined details of my case and "what I know and believe can be achieved".
I am serving a 235 month( 19yrs. 7mos.), sentence for being a felon in possession of a firearm(Note: I never fired that gun nor ever cause anyone harm with the weapon). My sentence was enhanced from 0-10 to 15-life due to a Missouri 2nd degree assault charge(1990), and a 'single' conviction for drug sales(2003). However, laws have changed and I have grounds for relief. It is just so very frustrating because if you don't understand the federal laws and language, and file a motion incorrectly or with the wrong courts, your entire chances for relief can be ruined. Therefore, I am reaching out for help with hopes and prayers that God would send that person who possesses the knowledge needed to win back my life.
When I was 18yrs old, I had a fight with a girl while intoxicated(drunk). I was charged with 2nd degree assault and sentenced to 3yrs. in a Missouri state prison. This case can now be challenged "and won" in light of Borden v. U.S.
In 2003, I sold crack-cocaine to an undercover officer three times, under one conviction. The government is using those 3 sales as 3 convictions. They also can be challenged "and won".
I know that I've made some bad choices in life, but I don't believe that I should have been given such and extensive amount of time.
I was sentenced in March 2019(arrested in January 2018),and I have used this time of incarceration to further educate myself, by attending any and all classes/programs that the BOP has to offer. I also enjoy encouraging and mentoring those who need and welcome positive guidance and higher elevation.
I possess innate intelligence that I allowed the enemy(Satan) to supress for many years, and I refuse to be held back and further. Upon my release, I have a vision to raise up a program to help those that are less fortunate, poor, hungry, addicted, and homeless. My own past in what fuels me, fires me to keep reaching for freedom, so that I may be able to help other people headed for destruction. God is in control and I will remain confident in this until the doors of my destiny are opened, and I obtain God's rest and rewards.
Thank you for taking the time in reading this message. Feel free to write me at the above address. I am open to any questions, letters. or advice you may have to offer.
God bless you
