The May issue of Marie Claire magazine features the case of Dorothy Gaines, a Federal prisoner sentenced to 235 months for her role in a crack cocaine conspiracy.  Gaines has steadfastly insisted on her innocence, and her case was featured on the PBS Frontline documentary Snitch last year.

The Criminal Justice Policy Foundation has provided a clemency letter to President Clinton, which can be accessed, sent or printed online at http://www.cjpf.org/gaines.html.

Those wishing to send letters of support to Ms. Gaines can write her at:
