Joe Biden’s crime bill put this pro boxer in prison for 30 years. Trump just let him out with clemency…
Trump grants clemency to man sentenced to 30 years for non-violent drug crime
President Trump granted clemency this week to Charles Duke Tanner, a former professional boxer who had already served 16 years of his 30-year sentence for a non-violent drug crime. Tanner rushed to embrace his son, who was only two years old when Tanner was imprisoned. When he was arrested, Tanner was an undefeated light heavyweight boxer.
“They said, ‘Hey, you’re going home today. President Trump signed clemency for you and you have to get out of here.’ I broke down praying right there in that office.”
“First and foremost, I wanna give all the praise and glory to God. Thank you for hearing me. But President Trump, I just want to thank you for giving me a second chance and believing in me and reading my petition. I’m just so thankful. It was just 20 years ago that I fought at the Trump casino, and now you give me clemency.”
Tanner was forced to leave his son when he was two years old. He is now 18 years old. “I lost my mother and my father, but I’ve got my son,” Tanner said. “This is what I live for.
Thank you, President Trump. Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart.
