We ask for your support to appeal for a pardon for Jerry DeLemus. We’ve joined efforts to seek a PARDON FOR JERRY DELEMUS from what we consider an unjust court decision in the Cliven Bundy federal case. Below is a sample letter for you to send to send to US Attorney General Jeff Sessions to object to the sentence handed down recently and ask for a pardon for our friend, neighbor and fellow patriot. Please mail your letter as soon as possible to undo this injustice! Thank you.
The Honorable Jeff Sessions, Attorney General of the U.S.
Office of the Attorney General
U.S. Department of Justice

Dear Attorney General Sessions,
I am appealing to you to pardon verdict against Rochester, New Hampshire resident Gerald (Jerry) Delemus who was arrested on March 3, 2016 by the FBI on charges stemming from the 2014 standoff between cattle rancher Cliven Bundy of Nevada and federal agents. The Bundy ranch is located 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, Nevada.
Bureau of Land Management agents confiscated Bundy’s cattle over grazing rights and the Bundy family appealed to the public for help against the BLM heavy handedness. A network of citizens across the country reacted to this plea and they flocked to Nevada to show their support and to help round up the cattle as well as protect the Bundy family from harm. A standoff between the Bundy family and supporters and BLM agents ensued. Nevada Sheriff Doug Gillespie convinced BLM agents to stand down, thereby de-escalating a tense situation and eventually, BLM agents left the area which allowed the Bundy family and supporters to retrieve the Bundy cattle.
Federal arrest warrants for 35-40 of the Bundy ranch supporters were issued a full two years after the event. As clearly documented, Jerry arrived in Nevada the day after the highly publicized armed standoff yet he was charged with offenses relating to that event. Jerry was held without release and without a speedy trial for over a year. Chief Judge Navarro ignored the fact that Jerry was not involved in the armed standoff and, as noted in her sentencing decision, held his legal efforts to change his plea as reason for additional punishment. This is blatant disregard of law and justice for Jerry.
Jerry DeLemus is a decorated United States Marine who served his country with honor and distinction. He is a man of strong passions with a thirst for freedom. He cares deeply about community and this country. That is why Jerry DeLemus offered his services to his community as candidate for County Sheriff. Jerry also served as Strafford County co-chairman for Veterans for Donald Trump in New Hampshire during President Trump’s campaign.
Regardless of who is right or wrong between Cliven Bundy and the BLM is irrelevant. This is a gross miscarriage of justice for an honorable man who did not deserve this archaic judgement.
