A staple of the Ferguson rebellion, Josh Williams was sentenced to 8 years in prison for attempting to a light fire near a Quick Trip gas station, during a protest against the killing of Black 18-year old Antonio Martin by police in Berkeley, Missouri on Christmas Eve 2014. Josh, who was 19 at the time of the incident, was charged with first-degree arson, and second-degree burglary for allegedly stealing under $500. His sentence is clearly disproprotionate to the conviction especially considering he was a teenager with no prior record at the time of the incident.
He should be eligible for early release (in 2022) after serving six and a half years of his sentence. He was transferred in 2017 to Jefferson City Correctional Center.
