I am 84 years old and serving a 324 month sentence in the shared “care and custody” of the Attorney General, the Federal Bureau of Prisons, and my Federal Case Manager, M/S JENNIFER PAINTER, Capitol Pavilion in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania for conduct found by a jury of my peers to be;
“[i]n violation of Title 21, United States Code, Section 841(a)(1)” that Title 21, United States Code, Section 841(b) STATUTORILY EXEMPTS me from the ambit of federal jurisdiction, but, NO ONE WILL LISTEN to me or review my work! Can You help?
