On today's episode of Felony Friday Rufus Rochell and Amy Povah join John. Rufus Rochell walked out of FCI Coleman on April 24th of this year. The BOP gave him home confinement, so he is still serving the remainder of his absurd sentence.
In 1988 Rufus was sentenced to 40 years 8 months for Conspiracy with Intent to Distribute 50 grams or more of Crack and Possession with Intent of the same amount. Prior to his arrest he had only minor infractions. There were no drugs founds. There were no undercover buys. Rufus was thrown in a cage based on the testimony of convicts who had their own freedom to gain by pointing the finger at Rufus.
Amy Povah has been on the show before to share her story of injustice and talk about the incredible Cando Foundation that she founded, which is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit foundation that advocates Clemency for All Non-violent Drug Offenders.
