According to Bobby: I am deeply sorry for my actions to cultivate, possess with intent to distribute marijuana. I sold small amounts of marijuana for my father, who was also my co-defendant. I am seeking a commutation of my sentence because I erred in judgment. Selling marijuana was wrong, and I know this, and I should have been wiser in my choices. I am not a violent man, I sold marijuana. I am not a threat to society and if granted clemency I will never again engage in ANY activity that would render me back to prison. I’m sorry for what I did, I’ve programmed and have done all that I can to be a better person, I’ve worked my entire incarceration, and have stellar conduct, not one incident in all my years of incarceration. All I want is to get home to my children and reestablish a relationship with both and get home to my mom who is sick with COPD.
