John Wheeler is in the 17th year of a 777 year, 77 month, and 77 day sentence under Washington's 3-Strikes law. All his convictions are for Robbery 2, an un-armed crime classified in the lowest quarter of criminal seriousness under Washington law.

In 2001, Washington's Sentencing Guidelines Commission recommended removing Robbery 2 from the list of 3 strikes offenses. There's been a bill in the state legislature to do this since then. See justiceisnogame.org and fix3strikes.org for information on how to support reform of this law.
