Default Intro--FreeDonC from Jamaica

Who am I?
Hello everyone I am new here, my name is Brittany. My fiance is in prison in Tennessee, USA and although I have a degree in Criminology you really have no idea about the Criminal Justice system until you experience it first hand.

What made me interested in this forum?
My fiance has been in prison for 24 years for accompanying a group of adults to commit a burglery where one of them shot and killed a man, this occured one week after his 16th birthday. He received clemency in 2012, however he has been denied parole 5 times since. Myself along with the Vanderbilt Prison Project have been working to make his case public.

Why I am here?
I am here to have a better idea of the US judicial system and also become and find allies, as we can't do this alone.

You can Google search Donald Clemons petition to support and learn about the story. I encourage you share and also comment on why Donald Clemons should be released.
Ps. The petition will say Don and Shawnda

Welcome to Prison Talk Brittany. Clemency obviously doesn't mean much in Tennessee. Once America puts someone in prison, the prisons and the courts always do anything in their power to keep them there. Sad, but usually true.

I have come to realize that, I always thought clemency meant instant release.
