On today's episode of Felony Friday Aaron David Seidel joins host John Odermatt to share why he's fighting for Ohio Governor John Kasich to grant him a full pardon. In August of 2004 Aaron, at 18 years old, was convicted of one count of attempted murder, for the shooting of his then step-father.

Aaron was sentenced to five years in prison, and was released in 2009. The five-year sentence was a reflection of the mitigating circumstances which lead to the shooting. Since the commission of his crime, Aaron has committed to a life of self-actualization through the service of others.

While still in prison, Aaron passed his GED exam and attended college at Marion Technical Center in business management. Aaron is currently finishing his undergraduate degree in both environmental geoscience, and applied mathematics. He has ambitions to go to graduate school or join the military. However, the walls that society builds around those with a criminal record is holding Aaron back from reaching his full potential. This is why Aaron is petitioning Ohio Governor John Kasich for a full pardon. Aaron has aspirations to get his PhD., he wants to be the best man he can be for his family and maximize his contributions to the world.

On today's show Dr. Cassandra Little joins host John Odermatt to share her heartbreaking story of injustice. Dr. Cassandra Little had dedicated her life to helping the most vulnerable in society by operating several group home to house and care for youths. Dr. Little found herself the subject of an investigation by the IRS and Medicaid Fraud Unit, which began in 2010. She was indicted in 2013 on 38 counts of healthcare fraud and money laundering.

Dr. Little was essentially legally forced to plead guilty to the original indictment for 38 counts of fraud and money laundering. In the end the guilty plea ended in a sentence of 33 month of incarceration in a Federal Prison Camp which began on October 14, 2013. On September 8, 2015 Dr. Little was released to a halfway house in San Francisco.

Read Cassandra's blog The Felonious PhD, which she wrote before, during and after her time in prison.

On today's show Larry Levine joins Felony Friday host John Odermatt for an entertaining and hard-hitting discussion. Larry is federal prison consultant. In April 2007, he founded American Prison Consultants, a legal service firm that provides information and federal criminal litigation assistance to lawyers, and offenders going through criminal proceedings and who are about to enter the federal prison system.

On August 3, 1998, Levine was arrested in Northridge, California. He was convicted in December 1999, on conspiracy charges relating to narcotics trafficking, securities fraud, obstruction of justice, racketeering, and possession of automatic weapons. Levine was sentenced to ten years in federal prison. While in custody, Levine served time in 11 different Federal Correctional Institutions in California, Arizona, Texas, Nevada, and Oklahoma, where he educated himself in Federal Criminal Law, and upon release in 2007, became a renowned International expert on the U.S. Federal Criminal Justice System.

This episode is marked explicit for a reason, so be prepared for plenty of cursing. Larry is a straight shooter and he doesn't sugar coat anything.

On today's episode New York City Mayoral candidate Aaron Commey joins host John Odermatt. Aaron is running for Mayor of New York City under the Libertarian Party banner. This is Aaron's second time on Felony Friday. He first appeared on Episode 26, where we discussed his controversial past. You see, Aaron Commey spent more than a decade in federal prison without ever having a criminal conviction.

The incident, which occurred 17 years ago, was detailed in a recent NY Post article, NYC mayoral candidate once tried to hijack an airplane. Aaron admits he was severely mentally ill at the time he attempted to hijack an airplane. Ultimately, Aaron was charged with five crimes, including attempt to commit aircraft piracy.

However, he was never convicted of a crime and he was found not guilty by reason of insanity in 2003, but still remained in the federal prison system until January of 2015. That's more than a decade where individuals, doctors employed by the federal prison system, essentially held him captive.

Now Aaron is running for Mayor of NYC to advocate for changes to the system that caused him so much pain. Aaron's campaign is focused on reforming criminal justice and education. He seeks to improve economic conditions for low wage and middle wage families by increasing opportunities to escape poverty through entrepreneurship and small business ownership.

Today on Felony Friday Holli Coulman joins host John Odermatt to share a shocking story of injustice. Holli went ascended the corporate ladder over a 16 year period serving the administrative needs of senior and executive vice presidents at a large high-tech company, Hewlett Packard. She found herself targeted under a federal investigation. And upon legal advice she took a plea to avoid the exorbitant cost of taking her case to trial. Holli was given a 21-month sentence for one count of wire fraud with a restitution amount of 954K.

Holli shares her experience and talks about the dangerous and abusive environment she was subjected to while incarcerated. The most shocking aspect of her time in prison was the two months of solitary confinement she was subjected to as a punishment for publishing blog posts that shared the mistreatment and danger she and her fellow inmates were exposed during her time at Victorville Federal Women's Camp.

On today's episode of Felony Friday host John Odermatt is joined by Lions of Liberty legal counsel "Rico." After exchanging some pleasantries discussing the MLB playoffs, John and Rico dive into the serious topic of the recent Las Vegas shooting.

They start out examining why the gun control crowd and Hillary Clinton have already started to use this tragedy to push their agenda. John and Rico point out that left will push perceived "common sense" solutions, that in reality do nothing to make us safer and absolutely infringe on our liberty. 

Instead of debating the left's fantasy solutions, John and Rico discuss a very important question that you won't hear anywhere else: Should automatic weapons be fully legalized? 

Tune in to hear the answer to this and much more! You can find links to everything discussed on the show below the player for today's podcast.
