To: Judge Juan Merchan

No special treatment for Trump, deliver a just sentence!

Despite disgraced former president Donald Trump’s repeated efforts to bully, intimidate, and lie his way out of accountability, a jury of brave everyday people convicted him of 34 felony charges on May 30, 2024. 

Now it's up to the judge to respect the will of the people and ensure that the sentencing is fair, reflects the seriousness of Trump's felonies, and sends a clear message that nobody is above the law.  Sign the petition to demand that there is no special treatment for Trump!

Why is this important?

Trump was convicted by a jury of 12 people on 34 counts for a felony election conspiracy and cover up. He is the first former president to ever be convicted of a felony. 

Trump’s sentencing is scheduled for July 11, and Judge Merchan overseeing the case has discretion in deciding the sentencing. Trump could face up to four years in prison and a fine of up to $170,000, or he could only be charged a fine, or sentenced just to probation or home confinement.

Time and time again we’ve seen injustice play out in the American criminal legal system—with the wealthy and privileged able to buy their way out of accountability while poor and working class people, LGBTQ+ communities, Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and Asian American and Pacific Islander people, and other marginalized groups are overpoliced, criminalized, and harshly sentenced.

Our elected leaders should be held to the highest standards. With all eyes watching, it’s important for Judge Merchan to deliver on the promise of the American legal system, and make sure the will of the people is reflected fairly and justly in the sentencing. 

Add your name to demand that no preferential treatment be given to Trump—and for him to issue a fair and firm sentence!
