This is a plea for signatures to help a young girl, Jayci Yaeger see her father for the last time before she dies of brain cancer. Jayci’s father, Jason Charles Yaeger, is incarcerated in a South Dakota prison just three and half hours drive from his daughter. He is scheduled to be released from prison in August.
Quote from ABC News:
He (Mr. Yaeger) has pleaded repeatedly with prison officials to honor the bureau’s apparent policy of allowing furloughs and transfers under “extraordinary” circumstances, but has been rebuffed time and again
And prison officials released a statement (pdf) saying:
Late Thursday, after abcnews.com published this story, the Bureau of Prisons released a statement saying that officials there “have reviewed inmate Yaeger’s request for a compassionate release and have determined his situation does not meet the criteria…”
If an inmates daughter’s dying does not constitute “extraordinary circumstances” then what does?
To sign the petition, CLICK HERE, there were only about 420 signatures when I signed and their goal is to get 100,000 so we need to get many, many more…QUICKLY!
This little girls life is coming to an end very soon. Please help Jayci see her father.
Please send the petition on to friends, family or even your entire e-mail list.
Let’s get this done!!!
