North Carolina: Black Asks for Commutation of Sentence

ABC News 13 reports Former State House Speaker Jim Black (D) has filed an application for commutation of sentence with Barack Obama's Department of Justice. A secondary request seeks to have Black relocated to North or South Carolina (from Pennsylvania) for the remainder of his 5-year sentence. The 74-year-old, who admitted to taking money from chiropractors while pushing their legislative agenda, is said to be in poor health. See story here.

Jim Black is a lifelong friend who deserves special consideration. I and many others in North Carolina believe his pardon would benefit our state. We went to college together, we were room mates and he introduced me to my wife of 54 years. Please allow him to spend the remainder of his days with his wife,family and friends. From a former Lutheran minister who was influenced by "Jimmy" billk

Do you know how many people have been waiting on a pardon in NC? When black was in charge he had the ability to reach out and maybe help some true deserving people get pardons! Funny I don't ever remember him petitioning the Governor to give anyone a pardon. Let him wait in line with the rest of us for a pardon. Oh by the way my pardon request was for a marijuana charge!! A lot less serious than his.
