John Ray Wilson has refused a plea offer and will be going to trial on December 14th. We reported on his case in an earlier story.
Mr. Wilson was growing marijuana for personal use to alleviate his Multiple Sclerosis. The plea offer, in exchange for a guilty plea, would have meant Mr. Wilson would have to serve three to nine years in prison. Now he may face up to twenty years. There is no advantage to neither Mr. Wilson nor society by placing this man in prison.
His only chance now is a pardon from Governor Corzine. The Star Ledger has recently written an editorial asking the Governor to pardon him. Senators Nicholas Scutari and Raymond Lesniak have both asked the Governor to pardon him
Now its your turn! Visit the Governor's contact page and send him a message asking for him to pardon Mr. Wilson.
