Felony Friday Exclusive - Corruption, Lies and Incompetence Sent Curtis Drayton to Prison for Two Decades
My guest today on Felony Friday is Curtis Drayton. Curtis was sentenced in 1995 to life with five years for four counts of distribution of cocaine base, possession with intent to distribute cocaine and aiding and abetting. His prison sentence was commuted by President Obama in December of last year and he was released from prison in Feb 16 of 2017. Curtis was only convicted and sentenced to life as a result of what can be described as blatant corruption and incompetence at the hands of the federal prosecutors, federal agents, the judge and a probationary officer.
I was introduced to Curtis by a former guest on this show, Malik King. Since our introduction Curtis and I have had several phone and Skype calls reviewing his case. Curtis sent me two large folders of legal documents from his case and patiently pointed out to me each instance where the government got it wrong. This is an incredible case. All the credit goes to Curtis for outlining and researching every aspect of the case against him with the hope of shinning a light on the grave injustice he's suffered. The goal of this podcast is to share his story, so please share this podcast far and wide.
