Janet's Petition for Clemency
A Prank which turned deadly
**Felony Murder Rule in NC**
Was the *plea deal* a FAIR AND JUST ONE?
Did the *TIME* fit the crime?
Janet Danahey is one of the kindest, warmest, most wonderful people I have ever known. She was very influential on myself and many others in our high school years. This is a person whose life will affect tens of thousands of people for the better.
She made a horrible mistake then took responsibility for it. The result was a life sentence with no chance of parole.
Janet paid for the crime with ten years in prison. She deserves to contribute to society again from the outside.
Here are some links: (I apologize in advance for any offensive commentary, but it's a controversial issue related to the Felony Murder Rule in NC)
There are few times in one's life when they are allowed the opportunity to speak up for someone who was simply trying to take responsbility and do the right thing.
Had the circumstances been weighed in front of a jury, the outcome would likely be far different.
Janet Danahey deserves a grant of clemency.
