HI Pittsburg,

Oh my, you must be totally devastated. My heart took a jump when I read 30 years. This does not seem right, I agree.
Do you have a lawyer? Surely, there must be room for an appeal.
I hope that you can find the right people to help you with this.
Oh God, please help her.

Sincerely,

way too long!
drug charges are the WORST it is down right crazy!
i just don't get it!
I'm sorry you are going thru this! I wish i knew something i could tell you to give you hope, however I don't know what or if there is anything? I imagine some appeals which obviously will take time! I also bet there will be some people that can come along that have been through this and or are going thru the same thing with a horrid sentence that can offer advice to what they have done and or are going through and doing.
Hang in there!
HUGS

In regards to the jury, it is definitely biased but unfortunately the Supreme Court ruled in McCleskey that in order to be granted an appeal or mistrial, it is the responsibility of the defense to prove that there was discrimination during the jury selection which lead to an all white jury. You could try contacting the ACLU to see if they have any resources you can connect with. I know it's really hard right now and all you hear is 30 years but if he doesn't lose any good time then he will discharge in 15 years and he might be home before then with parole. Good luck to you and your man! I hope he is granted an appeal and given a fair trial.

If he was sentenced in months it sounds as though it is federal time. Its my understanding feds do not parole, but have to do a percentage their time, then go to a half way house, and its all dependent on the crime and its enhancements. If he is a federal inmate, check out the federal forum here on Prisontalk. There is a wealth of information there. There is a world of difference between how state and federal time is figured and discharged.

Good luck!!
