Michael Fitzgerald Wilson

Michael Fitzgerald Wilson was sentenced to life in jail without parole in 1993 as a first-time, non-violent drug offender. He and his brother, who owned a car dealership in Dallas, were charged with being involved in a crack cocaine conspiracy, although no drugs were found in his home or business. (Photo: Courtesy of ACLU)
