I urge you to exercise your executive power to release Sundiata Acoli by commuting his sentence to time served. Mr. Acoli (formerly Clark Squire) is 84 years old and has been incarcerated nearly 48 years. He was sentenced to life with the possibility of parole for the 1973 killing of State Trooper Werner Foerster. He has taken responsibility and expressed remorse. For the past 27 years Sundiata has had a completely clean disciplinary record and is a strong candidate for commutation.
