According to Nancy:
I am 64 yrs.old and I have been locked up for 13 yrs. I was indicted on conspiracy charges because one of the co-conspirators said I “knew what was going on.” The U.S.Attorney offerred me 8 years, but I went to trial and therefore received 25 years instead.
I found out after I was sentences that my public defender Ross Espeseth, was a Divorce, Will and Probate lawyer and I was his first big felony and Federal criminal case.
I realize that I made bad choices in who I had for friends, but that shouldn’t cost me 25 yrs. of my life. I just had a kidney removed for cancer, a breast lumpectomy and radiation for cancer, and I have had over 12 surgeries on my back , neck, knees, [plus a replacement], thyroid, and other body parts. I also have Rhuematoid and Osteo Arthritis and suffered a stroke. My medical issues are numerous which will limit my ability to work , but if I am granted my freedom early I will live near my family instead of sitting here slowly dying. I am determined to be a productive member of society.
If I hadn’t been in such a small town and hadn’t been so sure that if you’re innocent , you’ll be found Not Guilty, I wouldn’t have spent these last 13 years locked up for “knowing what was going on”. If I had known the Feds always find you guilty, I would have taken their 8 yr.offer and would have been home by now.
All I can do is ask President Obama to give me a chance to live free again instead of probably dying in prison.
