10 years for being found in possession of marijuana, help us reduce Daniel Holmes' sentence to something more just

10 years for being found in possession of marijuana, help us reduce Daniel Holmes' sentence to something more just
  
  

 

Why this is important to me

The Maltese Courts punished family man Daniel Holmes by sentencing him to a frightening 10 year sentence, alongside a €23,000 pay off for being found in partial possession of marijuana at his Gozo residence.

Daniel has since turned his life around, and is hoping for a second chance and a fairer hearing. He understands that there are consequences to his actions and is ready to pay for his mistake, but we feel his sentence is seriously unjust.

We started this petition to create awareness behind the inequality surrounding local sentences. When sentences for rape charges and molestation, drug crimes committed by locals given less time, and in all cases sometimes even be probational or short-term (2-4 years), how do we then justify the mishandling of this man's situation?
