RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A Richmond family wants mercy from Governor Terry McAuliffe and medical clemency for a state prisoner who's bedridden with lung cancer.
Only the governor has the authority to approve an act of grace exempting Jason Scott Davis from further punishment. The Powhatan County inmate is incarcerated for assault on a family member, his third offense.
Jason Scott Davis has eight months left to serve, but his family says he may not live that long. Lung cancer had invaded his body and metastasized. Family members say Jason today is 6'1" and 90 pounds.
