As some of you may already know, Gregory is currently incarcerated at New Jersey State Prison. He is serving a 35 year to life sentence, under the HARSHIST, Three Strikes Law in our Nation. Gregory has exhausted his legal remedies. His hope is to return him to his loving family, friends, and the community.  We are now prepared to submit a Commute of Sentence/Conditional Release application, to the NJ Governor. As part of the said process, he needs support to demonstrate to Governor Chris Christie, that there is tremendous local and National support for his immediate release. Having all of your support plays a huge roll, towards accomplishing that goal.

Having the facts and understanding of Gregory’s case is of great significance.  Due to the criminal statue in which Gregory was charged, makes the crime of robbery, a violent crime, regardless if anyone was physically injured or not. Many others have pledged their support in this matter, due to this very reason, and various other reasons in this case as well.  

The Commute of Sentence/Conditional Release application, is not based on a matter of innocence or guilt. It centers on the fact that Gregory has already served Approximately 15 years in the only NJ maximum security prison, for his crime. It is also centered around, that Gregory’s release, would in no way compromise public safety, or place a financial burden on the State, Taxpayers, or in his community. This is strongly supported by Gregory’s behavior, and Major Achievements, (Please see attached) during his very long 15 year incarceration. 

In addition, The Three Strikes Law that resulted in Gregory’s incarceration, has since been repealed in many states. These states had enacted this law in 1990, during the Crack/Cocaine epidemic in this Nation.  In February 2013 The United States Supreme Court, has ruled that California Superior Court Judges, can now use discretion, in Three Strikes Law the judges are no longer locked in the mandatory minimum that the law requires.  However, The United Supreme Court, will not apply this ruling retroactively nationally, as it did in California.  Had they, Gregory’s sentence would have been reviewed and been vacated.

We Thank -You, in advance for your consideration, of our request, for this utmost importance for Gregory’s Cause. It has and is still having a devastating effect on Gregory, his loving family and friends. Please sign the Petition, for Gregory’s release.URL:http://www.thepetitionsite.com/874/170/105/free-greg-2014-lets-show-nj-drug-and-alcohol-reform-works-better-than-prison/
