Associate Justice Samuel A. Alito

TO: The Honorable Associate Justice Samuel A. Alito, Jr.

Sir, I’ve been incarcerated since 1994, for a 922 (g) conviction that was unjustly enhanced under 18 U.S.C. § 924 (e).


Which begs the question how is it possible that a garden-variety petty offender, such as I, that was sentenced under the unbiased-drag-net ACCA statue, receive more prison time than murderers, rapists, pedophiles and other offenders that were actually convicted of a violent crime?


I’ve shamefully served over 2 decades in a federal penitentiary for a mere possession of a (legally purchased) firearm conviction. This ACCA statue is arrantly torturous, unconstitutional, cruel and unusual, unpatriotic and unfit for a modern society.


In light of Johnson Vs. U.S. (No. 13-7120); I’d like to underline that in my case two of the three prior convictions used to trigger the ACCA statue were domestic burglaries to my own home: Where the record attests that NO burglary actually occurred, that the convictions were clearly a result of a misguided plea deal.


Sir, I’m a good man that’s willed himself through many needlessly difficult years of incarceration. Yes I made many mistakes as a teenager, but none deserving of such an extreme loss of liberty.


Your Honor, in the name of JUSTICE I pray the ACCA statue is ruled retroactively unconstitutional; For it has affected the unintended, for too long.


Sincerely, my parents and I thank you,


-Daniel Rodriguez
