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.

Shane Claiborne joins the Felony Friday show to discuss a subject that is pretty controversial, the death penalty. Shane is a Christian activist and author who is one of the founding members of the intentional community, the Simple Way, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He is a graduate of Eastern University, where he studied sociology and youth ministry.

Shane has an impressive resume. He worked alongside Mother Teresa during a 10-week term in Calcutta. He spent three weeks in Baghdad with the Iraq Peace Team and took daily trips to sites where there had been bombings, visited hospitals and families, and attended worship services during the war. - Claiborne is featured in the documentary The Ordinary Radicals, and he co-directed the three volume Another World is Possible series.

In 2011 he declared his unwillingness to pay taxes to fund U.S. military activity and withheld a portion of his income taxes meant to correspond to the percentage of the federal budget spent on the military, donating that money instead to charity. Shane is the author of the book Executing Grace: How the Death Penalty Killed Jesus and Why It's Killing Us.
