Craig Cesal Denied Clemency- Call to Action

INDIANA (December 7, 2016)- Many of you either know Craig personally, have heard him on ‘A Cup of Joe’ or have heard of him through activism work. Craig was denied clemency-  heartbreaking news but you can still hear a smile in Craigs voice and imagine the twinkle in his eye. Craig is an inspiration to anyone who is blessed to know him. Craig is asking for our help in the hope of being reconsidered for clemency.  Here is Craig's story in his words: “I am a first-time felon, and first time drug offender who was convicted of conspiring to distribute marijuana.  My truck repair company serviced trucks for other companies, and one company not only hauled freight, but they hauled marijuana.  I had always admitted my conduct, but I also always asserted it was not illegal. I did plead guilty, but even as a first time offender, I was sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole. That was nearly fifteen years ago, in 2002.
