Letter to the editor, Jeffrey Williams-Maisonet
Percy West has been in prison since he was 19 years old. He was sentenced to 132 1/2 years to life and, this is absolutely outrageous. His co-defendant received only 8 years . He has been in prison for 23 years now. I believe he should have been given time served, however we need legal assistance. At his trial he had an appointed attorney who misrepresented him. He never told Percy that he would be facing this much time if he went to trial. Initially, they offered Percy a plea bargain of 6 to 12 years , by the time he reconsidered; they took the plea back where he had no choice but to go to trial. He blew trial and was sentenced this excessive time. Percy was arrested for attempted robbery and resisting arrest. We need legal assistance for Percy ASAP. Any kind of assistance, either legal or monetary would be greatly appreciated.
