Distraught Mother Seeks Governor’s Help For Mentally Ill Son After 20 Years In Prison

BY PETE EARLEY

(11-6-17) Sana Campbell has started a petition drive ( that you can sign) to move her son from prison into a state hospital and is hoping to plead her case in person to outgoing Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe.

Sana is praying Gov. McAuliffe will grant Christopher Sharikas a conditional pardon that would send him from a prison cell to a state mental hospital bed for treatment. He would remain incarcerated but would get help.

USA TODAY published my OP Ed last week explaining why a then “child” with a severe mental illness was given a double life prison sentence that is much, much harsher than others charged with similar crimes.
