John Knock – Serving Life for Pot – Clemency Granted 1/20/21. Congrats Beth Curtis – Life for pot! - I was arrested in 1996 and charged with conspiracy. I stood trial in 2000. I was found guilty of three conspiracy charges. It was a dry conspiracy developed by a reverse sting operation. The courts were allowed to charge “perceived” amounts at the time of my trial. I have been incarcerated for 18 years as a result of this conviction. I have been separated from my family for 20 years (2 yrs. at large and 18 yrs. in prison). I have watched our son grow from 3 into a young man of 23, through telephone calls and prison visiting rooms.
