President Donald Trump commuted the sentence of Israeli-born Ronen (Boaz) Nahmani, father of five, after receiving heartfelt letters from the man’s children asking him to let their dad come home because their mom is dying of cancer.
Ynet reports that Trump made the decision after receiving letters from three of Nachmani’s children: Ariella (11), Orel (10) and Danielle (8).
“Mr. Nahmani is a non-violent, first-time offender with no criminal history. He has five young children at home and his wife is suffering from terminal cancer. These extenuating circumstances underscore the urgency of his request for clemency,” read the White House Statement released on July 29.
Nahmani, a Florida resident, was sentenced in 2015 to 20 years for conspiracy to distribute a synthetic drug he purchased from suppliers in China, Ynet reports.
The statement also noted the wide support for Nahmani’s release among politicians.
