Today, we appeared before the Illinois Prisoner Review Board on behalf of our client Gasi Pitter, who has served over half of his 40-year prison sentence. He has raised his daughter Alexia Pitter from behind bars. Lexi is a student at Howard University, an accomplished poet and writer, and active member in the community. Their story is special and we hope that our petition is granted. Thank you CBS2 Chicago for covering our request for clemency.
Chicago-based Attorney Tamara Holder has been filing clemency petitions - seeking commutation for incarcerated individuals and pardons for rehabilitated felons not in prison - for nearly 18 years. She has successfully petitioned for clemency before Illinois governors Pat Quinn, Bruce Rauner, and JB Pritzker.
