Miss Community Clovia reported this story earlier this week on Radio One Richmond stations. Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe will grant clemency to a prison inmate suffering from incurable cancer. Charles Davis and Brenda Kirby, parents of prison inmate Jason Scott Davis, 35, had requested a medical clemency for their son to die at home rather than in prison. Davis is serving a tw0-year and one month sentence on assault and battery charges. Davis is scheduled to be released from the Powhatan Correctional Center on November 10. Davis is 6 feet 1 inch tall and weighs 90 pounds said his mother. She does not believe he will make it through November.

Medical clemency can only be granted by the governor for state inmates and requests are not often approved. Medical clemency is reserved or considered only for inmates by at least two physicians who declare that an inmate is not expected to live more than 90 days.
Applications are considered by a committee of Virginia Department of Corrections officials. The committee then makes its recommendation to the Virginia Parole Board, and the board forwards its recommendation to the office of the secretary of the commonwealth, which sends it on to the governor, reports the Times-Dispatch.
Governor McAuliffe’s spokesperson Brian Coy did not give any details on how or when Davis will be released from the Powhatan Correctional Center.
