Here’s How You Can Help Jerry
Here is your opportunity to be instrumental in helping a beloved individual be restored to his family, friends, and community as a productive role model and positive asset. Imagine if you will, only being allowed three mistakes in life before you are banished to the dungeons of incarceration – for a period of no less than 25 years, and which could extend into the grave. Also, imagine that you are not told of such punishment until after you have already made two mistakes. One must wonder how could such a standard be just and right in a civilized nation “under God.” If God Himself were to hold mankind to the same standard, there would not be one human being walking around free. Yet, for almost 20 years, California has enforced such an inequitable law (3 Strikes).
Jerry Buckner is an individual who has been ensnared by such a cruel and unfair law, and is now seeking financial contributions to retain the services of an attorney who could assist in his liberation. Recently, the United States Supreme Court has handed down favorable decisions (Missouri c. Frye, 2012: & Lafler v. Cooper, 2012) in which, if Jerry were able to obtain adequate representation, his freedom could be secured.
In the ten years Jerry has now been incarcerated, he has not only taken advantage of the self-help rehabilitation programs available, but he has also been active in pursuing a Masters degree in sociology. He is an active proponent of the restoration process for ex-felons to regain their voting rights and has devoted himself to educating prisoners on felon disenfranchisement. Moreover, he has immersed himself in the spiritual aspect of life; this daily journey has given him a solid foundation in the Christian faith and transformed him into a man of moral character; a man who is creative, talented, and committed to making a constructive difference when released.
Jerry’s developed interest in poetry and music culminated in him once becoming the owner and executive producer of Desert Heat Records during the period of 1997 through 2002 – in which he produced two self releases as an artist, and four other acts. With such experience, and life lessons he is perpetually acquiring, it is Jerry’s vision upon release to effectively mentor and counsel at risk youths and adults, those on parole, as well as the incarcerated. Your much appreciated donation is a contribution toward not only freeing him from an excessive and unjust sentence, but also a contribution toward making his vision a reality; it is a contribution toward putting a good person in a position to do good things in the community. Please know that any amount given will be greatly appreciated by Jerry and his family. May God add a special blessing to you for your generosity.
