Darrell Frazier, a Chattanooga man, who was serving a life sentence and spent more than three decades in prison was granted clemency by the Former President Donald Trump. Darrell Frazier was convicted of drug conspiracy in the late 1980s.

“I thank God for blessing President Trump to grant me my freedom.” January 19, 2021 is a day Darrell Frazier will never forget. After being transferred to six different federal prisons, he was done. He walked out of his prison cell and into his new life that day as a free man.

“I didn’t lose hope, I just didn’t know it was going to take as long as it took,” Frazier said.

He is now President of the Joe Johnson Tennis Foundation in Tennessee. He cofounded the nonprofit organization with his mother, Joyce, and brother, Dargin Johnson.
