Parents of Va. inmate who has cancer seek clemency

RICHMOND, Va. — A Richmond-area couple says their imprisoned son has terminal cancer and they want to bring him home.

Brenda Kirby and Charles Davis have requested a medical clemency release for their son, 35-year-old Jason Scott Davis. He is serving a two-year, one-month sentence at Powhatan Correctional Center.

Brenda Kirby tells the Richmond Times-Dispatch that her 6-foot-1-inch tall son weighs just 90 pounds and is bedridden. She says he wants to be with his parents.

Only the governor can grant medical clemency for a state inmate.

A spokesman for Gov. Terry McAuliffe, Brian Coy, tells the newspaper that the secretary of the commonwealth’s office received the clemency request last week. The office will evaluate the request and make a recommendation to the governor.
