TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE! 55 YEARS FOR MARIJUANA


This once young Latino man, Weldon Angelos has so far served 10 years in a Federal prison. He is not even half way through his sentence. He was sentenced at 24 years of age to 55 years for selling Marijuana 3 times to an undercover Fed. 


The conservative federal judge Paul Cassell, appointed by President George W. Bush, sentenced Weldon to one day in prison on the marijuana charges.  But, to the judge’s dismay, he had to sentence Weldon to 55 years in prison because Weldon possessed the guns during a drug crime.  That sentence was required by a mandatory minimum sentencing statute. 
Please sign the Petition asking President Obama to Commute this young man's sentence. This is tragic.  I cannot even think of what he may be going through behind bars of a maximum facility prison.
