Citizens United to Change and Repeal 924(c) "Stacking Statute"

Messages Sent So Far
Congressman Bobby Scott has submitted Criminal Justice Reform Bill H.R. 1254, ?The Recidivism Clarification Act of 2015?. This bill would save taxpayers roughly $6 Billion dollars by reducing the time in prison for approximately 3,000 inmates who were sentenced to excessive time. Supporting this bill will restore lives, families and give those inmates a chance to be contributing productive citizens.

This bill would address the excessive, severe, and irrational mandatory consecutive penalties that are added onto exiting mandatory minimums, a practice commonly known as ?stacking?. The current ?stacking statute? has led to grossly disproportionate, irrational, and excessive sentences that often do not fit the crime charged and way above the recommended sentencing guidelines which were substantially less. This bill further clarifies that sentences can only be ?stacked? when the defendant is a ?true recidivist? ? meaning the defendant had a prior qualifying predicated conviction that had already been final.

We, Citizens United to Change and Repeal 924(c) ?Stacking Statute? strongly believe these relatively few inmates deserve to be re-evaluated and permitted to petition for relief for excessive sentences. The families of these men and women are hopeful that you, Congress, are truly sincere about wanting criminal justice reform that would facilitate ?Liberty and Justice for All?. Please recommend Bill H.R. 1254 be brought to the floor for a vote?..then APPROVE THIS BILL!

Let?s Get It Done?.

I hope this goes for the federal time to. My husband was sentenced to life plus 52 years currently in a appeal process. So many stories were switched up he needs a far trail. He deserve to be home with his family.

Free Demetrius Y. Smith. My dad is the best. He was teaching me not to make the mistakes he made. How to be a man and work for what u want and need. He turned his life around when he met my mom and he gave his life to God. I have not seen my dad in almost 3 years and I need him at this point in my life. Please free him he doesn't deserve to serve all this time for the charge he was charged with. Its insane

Free Demetrius Y. Smith. I miss my dad. We were very close. He stepped in and took care of myself and siblings and he had just gave his life to the lord. He was doing great. He is a good person he just made a bad choice. Please free my dad. I want him to be home to watch me walk across the stage in may 2016. Lord I pray that you touch the hearts of whom ever is in charge. And send my daddy home. Please!!!

Please Free Demetrius Y. Smith because my father has been over sentenced. I have been very ill over the past year and a half and it has been alot of stress on my mother. This was my last year in school and my dad wasn't able to attend because of him being sentenced. I've been depressed on and off because I watch my mom struggle and stress because so much has been placed on her since he's been gone.

I support this petition because my husband was given a life sentence of 60 years that we are appealing now to get him a new trial because he was wrongfully convicted!
