THE STORY:

Tommie Dues is one of the most loving, talented, and amazing gifts God has blessed our family with. In 1993, at the tender age of 19, Tommie was sentenced to forty (40) years in a Florida State Prison. *Note: This was his first offense as an adult, and his charge was non-homicidal, no harm against women or children; furthermore was based off hearsay, no evidence to convict. Whether Tommie committed the crime or not, he was only 19, young, lost, and was simply trying to figure life out, just the wrong way. Hearing the words "sentenced to forty years incarceration" we felt like someone murdered our loved one right in our face. Can you imagine that? Every attempt at an appeal we took it, but it continued to get denied: 1). We couldn't afford worthy representation for the appeal, so we filed it on our own(which is equivalent to doing nothing at all) &
2). He hadn't done enough time (courts opinion) to be considered for a sentence reduction.
Now after twenty-one (21) years of confinement, Tommie used his time wisely by earning numerous certifications in Technology, Business Management, Welding, and Real Estate (just to name a few). We are making yet another attempt for release through clemency, which is where the courts will decide if Tommie has done enough time for his crime. Clemencies depending on the state take about five (5) years to be reviewed. The motion will either be approved or denied, with proper assistance we are positive it will be expedited and granted. The donation we are asking for includes the amount a creditable & well respected Clemency lawyer out of Tallahassee, FL requires to take over the motion. (10k) The remaining amount will be for Tommie once he's released, funding to help him get on his feet and accomplish a business goal that's associated with the credentials he's gained over the past two decades. In despite of Tommie's circumstance, he's been the backbone of our family, and more than anything in the world we just want him home to enjoy our last days as a whole.
Thank You for your consideration, anything and everything is greatly appreciated.
-The Dues Family
