The Comfort of Family A terminally ill prisoner at Stafford Creek Corrections Center in southwest Washington State was able to spend his last months of life in the comfort and care of his family, thanks to the work of a DWT team. Seattle associate Grant Damon-Feng, together with members of the inmate’s family, appeared virtually before the Washington State Clemency and Pardons Board last year on behalf of our client, who had an outstanding record during his 16 years of incarceration. The board unanimously agreed to recommend a commutation, which Gov. Jay Inslee granted. Among those who helped achieve this just and compassionate outcome were the Seattle Clemency Project, which championed the client’s case and enlisted our team to assist; the King County Prosecutor’s Office, which fully supported our client’s petition; and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which agreed to withdraw the immigration detainer previously placed on our client.
