Donald Ray Clemons—aka Don—has been caged for 23 years for an offense that happened in 1996, one week after his 16th birthday. HE WAS TAGGING ALONG WITH THREE ADULTS to do a burglary. Something happened and one of the adults shot and killed a man. Two got life sentences, one received 25 years, and Don was sentenced to 37 years at 100%.
In 2011, Gov. Bredesen commuted Don’s “percentage on the sentence.” Don met the Board of Parole in 2012 and he was denied. HE HAS MET THE BOARD OF PAROLE 4 TIMES!
He meets the BOP for the 5th time April 23, 2019, 8:30AM at Riverbend Maximum Security Institution. WE NEED SUPPORT! Please send a short email to the parole board voicing your support for Don’s freedom: BOP.Webmail@tn.gov
