Max B seeks a little bit of help from President Obama before the end of the leader’s term.
In a petition at WhiteHouse.Gov, the incarcerated rapper pleaded his case.
Rap icon Max B, also known as Charly Wingate, was found guilty of involvement in a robbery that left a man dead. Charly was sentenced to 40 years on September 4th 2009, without any convincing evidence presented by the state. Charly was accused of orchestrating a robbery and then convicted for armed robbery, kidnapping, aggravated assault, and murder.
Many feel the rapper’s conviction was unusually harsh, cruel and unlawful. On August 30th 2012, Max B’s appeal for a retrial was denied with no further notice. We are looking to approach Governor Chris Christie and President Barack Obama for a pardon, or at the very least, a retrial.
Max needs a total of 100,000 online signatures to be considered, but only has 1,236 at the time of this writing. He has until December 25 of 2015.
