In regards to: Arthur L Johnson. Inmate D46980 CTF Central F –W 218 up P O Box 6...

Dear President Obama:

My name is Gwendolyn Gill and I am 63 years old and have worked at AT&T for more than 40 years as a Manager and Contractor. I am the sister of Arthur Lee Johnson- Inmate D46980

MY brother Arthur is not a bad man and he is not a violent offender. Most of the harm that he has caused has been to himself. He obtained a drug habit while serving in the Navy and was not able to shake that monkey off of his back. My brother is not a well man and he was never a well-child. He has suffered from rheumatic fever since he was a child and had to go to the hospital weekly for treatment. Our mother died when he was only three years old and our father an alcoholic raised six kids the best he could. Arthur joined the Navy to find a better life but he found a drug habit instead since being incarcerated, Arthur has assisted other in mates in drawing up and filing legal documents and he studies all the time the law in the library. He always has a positive attitude when we visit or talk on the phone. He takes full responsibility for the actions that led to his incarceration, and shows considerable remorse.

My husband and I are more than willing to provide Arthur with every aspect of support, guidance, accountability and love. The job market in Plainfield is not bad; we have friends that are willing to offer him employment. My husband and I own our own home and can provide Arthur with a suitable environment. We also have an extra car that he can use until he has saved enough to purchase his own vehicle.

I believe beyond a doubt that given the opportunity of parole, Arthur will come home and make us all proud. I love my brother very much and I implore you to please let him spend his later years here in New Jersey with his family. He has done some bad things but he has also done some very good things. He served his Country with Honor and respect. Please give him the help that he needs and don’t continue to keep him locked up like an animal. If there is any chance for clemency for a much loved individual, please give him that chance.
Thank you for your time and attention.
