Calvin Lyniol Robinson
Calvin Robinson's 30 year prison anniversary was a few weeks ago, but he should have been released before he had to celebrate it.
The 76 year-old marijuana offender's application for compassionate release has been approved, but because of the endless bureaucracy of the prison system, he hasn't heard anything more about it in the last six months.
"I was told that it was already approved, and that it was on the judge's desk waiting for signing back in January of this year, so it hasn't gone anywhere yet. I've been told over and over again that this takes years," he told Civilized during a 15 minute phone call from USP Victorville in California.
But Robinson doesn't have years to wait. He has cancer in his lymph nodes that was left untreated, among many other health concerns. Time is running out.
