WLC helped L.J., an individual from DC who was incarcerated in the BOP for 23 years, find representation and secure release at his fourth parole hearing. L.J. was 24 years old when he was charged with manslaughter while armed and received an indeterminate sentence of 14 years to life. After years of roadblocks and resilient self-advocacy, L.J. earned his freedom on his fourth attempt before the U.S Parole Commission. L.J. believes his pro bono counsel made all the difference, saying that when his counsel “got a chance to speak, she laid it all on the table… they had no choice but to release me.”
