San Francisco Mayor London Breed sent a letter to retirement governor Jerry Brown in late October and asked him to “consider favorability” and commute the meaning of his older brother who has served almost two decades of a 44-year sentence on a death sentence , according to reports.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported Wednesday that the mayor has joined other members of her family in requesting an early release from prison for Napoleon Brown, who struggled with drugs from a young age.

In a statement on Tuesday, Breed said that people who violate the law would have consequences, but also have the possibility of redemption.

“Too many people were especially young black men like my brother when he was not sentenced to opportunity to become contributing members of society after serving in prison,” she said.

Her office did not respond to Fox New’s request for comments Wednesday night.

A spokesperson for Brown, Bri and Ferguson, told Fox News via e-mail Wednesday: “Our office does not comment on individual cases / applications. We can really stay up to date on the forthcoming commutation decisions we announce.”

Breed , 44, has talked about her gross upbringing in San Francisco’s public housing.

Brown, now 46, drove Lenties White from a refuge on the Golden Gate Bridge after an armed robbery in June 2000. White, 25, was killed by a vehicle and died.

The newspaper reports that documents in Brown’s commutation application show that his lawyers expected to negotiate a 20-year-old. But the district attorney’s office would only consider a “package deal” with both Brown and a co-accused.

The mayor’s letter was first reported by KNTV on Tuesday night. The television news agency reported that the court record said that Brown had recently been caught with heroin in prison and had two years in his opinion, a detail that was not part of the mayor’s letter to the governor.

Sandra McNeil, the victim’s mother, said that Brown did not deserve early release.

“I do not think there would be justice,” she said. “She is the mayor, so she has some power, so she thinks she can bring out her brother.”
