The Kubinski Family
Kenny was a rifleman in Company A, 1st Battalion, 506th Infantry (Airborne) won three Purple Hearts, a Bronze Star and Army Commendation Medal in Vietnam. Since 1993, he has been serving life without parole for a non-violent marijuana offense.
Before their arrest, the Kubinskis were active members of their farm community.
Kenny cut and delivered firewood to elderly neighbors, volunteered his landscaping skills to Habitat for Humanity through the church, and provided jobs through his family construction company. Jackie was an active member at her church, a volunteer at her children's school, and a local board member for the American Diabetes Association.
Due to asset forfeiture, the Kubinskis have lost everything: their home, their business, their freedom, and - for now, at least - each other. Following a traumatic separation, the children are learning to cope. They are able to visit Jackie once a month for a few hours at a time. Due to the long distance to the prison, however, they can only visit their father every three or four months.
Jackie wrote about her son's frustration: "Adam would get so mad, because he couldn't do anything to help get his mom and dad out of jail....
On Thanksgiving day, he cried, 'I just want my own mom and dad and my own turkey and my own table.' They always ask ,'When are you coming home?' "
