Need Some Legal Assistance

Since his incarceration, Trent has worked tirelessly to learn, grow, and better himself as a person. First, he has completed a 30-week drug recovery class. Although he is not a drug addict, he volunteered to take the course in order to learn more about Cognitive Behavioral Techniques to help him make better choices and improve his ways of thinking and behaving. 

Although he has already graduated from the course, he continues to attend the class twice a week. He also has completed many other courses including Parenting, Anger Management, Domestic Violence and Workforce Reentry.

Before the Coronavirus Pandemic, he was working as a Teacher’s Assistant. He continues to maintain a positive outlook on life and has utilized his sentence to educate himself and improve his life in every way possible.

As a community, we are heartbroken that Trent is serving such a lengthy sentence for a minor marijuana charge. While Trent is locked away and separated from his family and child, the US legal marijuana industry is generating billions of dollars and wealthy people are making huge profits off the sale of marijuana. According to NAACP, African Americans and whites use drugs at similar rates, but the imprisonment rate of African Americans for drug charges is almost 6 times that of whites. His case speaks to the racial disparities inherent to the United States criminal justice system that disproportionally arrests, charges, and sentences Black Americans. 

Trent’s story is unjust and we want to do everything in our power to support him throughout his incarceration and beyond.
