Today on Felony Friday Gracie Walker joins host John Odermatt to share how she spent more than a decade in prison for the “crime” of introducing two people. In 2007, Gracie was convicted of Conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance in the Northern District of Texas. She was sentenced to 290 months. Gracie was not charged or convicted of selling drugs, rather she was sentenced to prison for introducing two people.
When she was arrested, Gracie was a working single mother and had not been involved with drugs for over three years. She was not in possession of any contraband and no drugs were found in the house where she was arrested. Prosecutors did offer a plea deal in exchange for information, but since Gracie had not been selling drugs she did not have any information to offer, so she was convicted. Thankfully, after spending ten years in President Obama granted Gracie clemency, shaving at least ten years off her sentence.
