On today's episode Maurice Clifton joins John to share his story. Maurice was released from prison just two weeks ago, on January 10th!
Maurice originally was sentenced to 33 years and 4 months for crimes where nobody was hurt. He went to trial for selling 6.4 grams of cocaine and money laundering. During sentencing he was held responsible for 1.5 kilograms of ghost dope. This took his sentence from possibly receiving 60 to 70 months, to being moved to a category that put him in the guideline range of 360 to life. Ultimately, Maurice served 23 years. And the First Step Act secured his freedom.
