Most people enjoy the benefits of the freedom their country gives them. But there are some who live without it. Lacy Jermaine Hutchins has been wrongly charged for a crime he did not commit and was sentenced to serve a life sentence with parole. Wanting to break free from and address the flaws of the justice system, Lacy is determined to prove his innocence by gathering the sympathy of the public to fight for his cause.
Lacy Jermaine Hutchins is from Chatham County in Savannah, Georgia, the same county that failed him with an unfair judgment. He is currently an inmate at the Telfair State Prison in Georgia. Lacy was charged with a drug case, and he shared that he was arrested for drugs without proof of any substance on him.
“The court system has failed me, and I am now serving a life sentence with parole, yes a life sentence with parole for drugs,” said Lacy Jermaine Hutchins. “I have a 30-year sentence running concurrently with the recidivist for having my own prescribed medication in my possession, but the drugs I am presently charged with were not on me or nowhere to be found,” he added.
Lacy Jermaine Hutchins understands how difficult the journey ahead of him is, but his spirit remains strong. He shared how the trials given to his case were “unfair” from the beginning, and he knew that the chances of not going to prison were slim. Still, he had faith that the justice system of Chatham County would uncover the truth, but it never did. Today, Lacy is aiming to gather help from the general public and seeks to open conversations regarding the wrong that has been done to him.
“I just want my freedom back and to live without worrying about getting harassed by law enforcement agencies because they think or feel like I’m doing something wrong in the community,” said Lacy Jermaine Hutchins.
As a member of the Black community, Lacy often faced stereotypes and prejudice. By winning his case, he hopes to bring justice not only to his name but also to all the other individuals who have been wrongly imprisoned for a crime they did not commit. Furthermore, he aims to attract the support of various celebrities who are voicing out for the prison reform act.
Lacy Jermaine Hutchins has faced many tribulations while setting things right. On his mission to achieve freedom, Lacy launched a GoFundMe page. With the proceeds of the online donation drive, Lacy aims to hire a competent lawyer that would help him clear his name. He also has a petition at change.org where the public can sign on his behalf.
“I am reaching out for all the supporters that I can because I don’t want to end up as another statistic in prison lost like a needle in a haystack,” shared Lacy.
In five years, Lacy Jermaine Hutchins aims to become a successful entrepreneur running his own multi-million dollar company. Lacy is ready to go forward once he is freed, and he seeks to reach out to others who have been through the same situation.
