Sadly, Charles is a LWOP POW- this means Life Without the Possibility of Parole. So,Charles Frederick “Fred” Cundiff a 66 year old white male is serving LWOP for cannabis. Specifically for importing marijuana. Charles was sentenced to life without parole for conspiracy to import and distribute over 1,000 kilos of marijuana.

Charles has been in Federal Prison since 1991; he has served 22 years in federal prison.

Charles had a happy life prior to his arrest. He worked in a variety of fields: at a plant nursery, he worked construction, he was a mortgage solicitor, and a manager at a stereo store. Charles is Father to three children, a grandfather to nine grand-children, and a great-grandfather 6 great grand-children. The Cundiff family is as much of victim as is Charles on this failed War on Drugs. Charles is blessed to have regular visits by two friends from his youth. 

Sadly, after Mr. Cundiff has worked steadily for 12 years of his imprisonment has had to stop working due to his declining health. He has became seriously ill and now requires a walker. In addition, Charles is suffering from skin cancer, a dropped foot and shrunken leg due to severe arthritis and spinal surgery, disintegration of orbital bone due to chronic infection, and vision problems.

United States v. Cundiff et al., No. 91-03069-06/RV (N.D. Fl.), affirmed 16 F.3d 1231 (11th Cir. 1994). At sentencing, the trial judge said that he would sentence Mr. Cundiff to 15 to 20 years, that however such a sentence would be reversed on appeal.

Of prison, Cundiff says, “If I should die and go to hell, it could be no worse.” 

This is a sad reality for many Americans. Please, share this story. America needs to know that our citizens are doing life in prison for a plant. And, NO-ONE BELONGS IN JAIL FOR A PLANT.
