Ferrell Scott is serving a life sentence for transporting marijuana. His mandatory life sentence is not because he has a dangerous or violent past, but because he declined a 12-year plea deal, thinking that was an excessive sentence for marijuana. His only other convictions were for small-time drugs, misdemeanors, and driving infractions. Even the former prosecutor in his case now acknowledges that a life sentence was too harsh.
Ferell is fighting for clemency to be reunited with his family and two kids, Skylar and Serrell.
