Every year petitions for clemency collect on the Governor's desk. Recently the case of Timothy Prosser has gained attention. The Riverfront Times chronicled the story of this Missouri man who was sentenced to life in prison for non-violent crime. In this episode we are joined by John Ammann, McDonnell Professor of Justice in American Society, supervisor in SLU's Civil Advocacy clinic and one of the founders of the Community Coalition for Clemency. Every year Professor Ammann and his students petition the Governor for clemency on behalf of their clients.
