- Judges in Florida
- United States of America
I am starting this petition on behalf of my nephew Rodrigues Darden and his friend Quinton Powell. They both was sentenced to 55 years in prison for robbing and shooting someone.
Let me be clear I'm not trying to justify what they did. Yes they was wrong and yes they deserve prison time. But 55 years is outrageous as many people have received less time for murder. My nephew was 22 years old when sentenced to 55 years and Quintion was only 19. They wanted to give them both life but decided on 55 years. In my eyes that is life.
This is not the only case in Florida where judges are handing out outrageous numbers. Again I say I am not trying to justify what they did but to give them 55 years is just crazy!
LET ME SAY THIS AND BE CLEAR NO ONE WAS KILLED OR MURDERED!
PLEASE help me and sign this petition to get these two young men a lesser prison term.
