ALL OUT For Detroit to Support Rasmea at Her Sentencing Thurs., March 12!

http://uspcn.org/

Please join us on Thursday, March 12th, in Detroit for Rasmea’s sentencing hearing.  Rasmea was unjustly convicted in November of last year, and the prosecution is now asking for an enhanced sentence of 5-7 years in prison.  (The vast majority of those convicted of Unlawful Procurement of Naturalization are sentenced to no more than 21 months.)

Rasmea’s defense attorneys are arguing that she shouldn’t be imprisoned for even one more day, and over 70 important leaders of unions and community-based, faith-based, civil rights, and student organizations, as well as prominent academics and activists, who all wrote letters of leniency to Judge Gershwin Drain, agree.

In addition, it must be made clear that Rasmea will be appealing the conviction regardless of the outcome of the sentencing, so visit the national Rasmea Defense Committee’s new website at www.justice4rasmea.org to help us fundraise for the appeal and learn of other action steps you can take.
