Benton Miley is a 70-year-old U.S. Navy veteran who has served over 29 years in prison for drug-related offenses. Mr. Miley has worked for UNICOR and in various positions within the BOP for many years and has not had any disciplinary incidents in all his years of incarceration. Mr. Miley is now in poor health due to complications from colon cancer, and he suffers from periodontal disease and severe abdominal and joint pain. In addition, due to his compromised immune system, he remains at risk of suffering from severe illness if he were to contract COVID-19. Based on his length of sentence served and his demonstrated rehabilitation, Mr. Miley is deserving of clemency.
