Troy Powell

Troy Powell served 15 years in prison for a crack/cocaine conspiracy charge and received nearly a year off his sentence through the crack/cocaine sentencing provision. He returned home to North Carolina in February and has been working in construction since his release. He is eager to purchase a home and find ways to rebuild his life since his release. He joined the #cut50 team at the White House First Step Act celebration and spoke on the importance of the bipartisan bill, fair chance hiring and his hopes for a second step.
