Sara Kruzan was sentenced to Life Without the Possibility of Parole (LWOP) at the age of 16. Due to a diligent grassroots campaign her sentence was recently commuted to 25 years to life. Although CCWP believes that Sara, and all those living behind bars, should be freed, we celebrate this victory in the hope that Sara will now have a chance of spending part of her life free.
From the Free Sara Kruzan committee:
While we all hoped and prayed that Sara’s sentence would be completely vacated the commute is a huge step. We can now move forward with the knowledge that Sara will be free.
This commute does not mean that Sara cannot go back to court seeking other remedies to her sentence. I will continue to keep everyone updated!!
WE THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!
TOGETHER WE STAND TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!!!!!!!!
Happy New Year!!!
