Advocating for Clemency for Bryon Russ
Next, WOOC producer Elizabeth Press spoke to Joline Russ about her efforts to seek clemency for her husband Bryon Russ.
In addition to the 2017 petition for clemency, in 2019, Steven Zeidman and the Second Look Project at CUNY School of Law, created a more detailed second clemency application packet. Both applications have gone unanswered but the executive clemency bureau has acknowledged receipt of both. The public campaign for Bryon’s release from prison is on Change.org www.change.org/p/andrew-cuomo-clemency-for-bryon-russ
