U.S. v. Moreno
The reason I am seeking clemency is because I want to reunite with my children and grandchildren. When I was arrested my children were 10, 8, and 2 years old. I have not been able to see my children grow up, as I have always been incarcerated thousands of miles away throughout my incarceration, making it almost impossible for them visit me. This has been extremely hard on my family. It breaks my heart to know that my children have needed me their entire life. Anyone in the community can testify that I was always very close to my wife and children. I wasn’t there when they needed me the most; holidays, birthdays, graduations, weddings, sacraments, and the births of my grandchildren. I was not able to walk my daughter down the aisle or sadly burry my wife who passed at the age of 46. Although my spirit is broken I continue with hopes and prayers that I be given a chance to be a father and grandfather to our children, and make up for so much lost time.
I take full responsibility for my participation and actions in this case. I can also say with much pride that my behavior and life in prison has always been exemplary as my records will show. Being a first time offender, I was scared and overwhelmed. My lawyer at the time advised to accept a quick plea and told me that I would not receive a sentence over 20 years. Now thinking, who would plead guilty to a life sentence without parole?
During the past 21 years I have participated and completed many educational courses that have prepared me, God willing for my release. I come from a big family of hard working community leaders that will give me an opportunity to work and give back of what is expected of me, an honest, hard working citizen of the community.
There are no words to express the remorse I feel every day for the wrong path I took that has caused so much suffering. I pray that President Donald J. Trump will have mercy in considering my clemency so that my family can smile again and rejoice – so that we can start a new chapter and I want to do everything in my power to heal the pain they have felt in their heart and soul.
