I have a very dear friend who is now incarcerated for the charges of armed robbery. Due to the law they passed in 1/1/98 anyone who has a weapon in the event of a robbery gets 20 years to life in prison! No questions asked. I am trying to get together a petition for my friend hoping the courts will give him one chance. He is a very good man and many people were shocked when they heard he did this but there was a lot going on in his life, his mom had passed away and his dad kicked him out of his house leaving him on the streets with no where to go and no one to call.

I know if they give this man a chance he can make the changes he needs to live in society as a law abiding person and he deserves that right at only being 19 years old!! This was the only charge he has had as an adult and I am asking you to sign this petition to show I am not the only person who feels against this, and maybe they will give him a second chance.

We, the undersigned, believe that in this case 24 to life in prison for armed robbery is wrong!
