Well, its been a while since ive written anything but here it is.
Ive been in united states penitentiary Hazelton for a year now. I had what the BOP calls a "management variable" on me (to be able to bring me to a penitentiary). My management variable expired and so I had my review and my case manager put me in for a transfer to a medium security prison. The BOP headquarters had other plans for me. They put a new management variable on me for two more years. So I have to go another two years without a shot (incident report), to be able to go to a medium. It is almost impossible to go without a shot for three years. Well, Im probably going to be in pens for my whole sentence, so I figured I should start writing a lot more. The worst that could happe is getting transfered to a CMU (communication management unit) in either Terre Haute Indiana or Marion Illinois.
On Tuesday January 7th someone got stabbed in my unit. It was the worst on that ive seen so far since ive been here, so we're currently locked down.
The food that they give us during lockdown is a complete joke. At lunch they're supposed to give us a hot sandwitch (normally gas station type hamburgers) and today the ones we recieved were still completely frozen. We're supposed to get four slices of bread for lunch with pb&j and four slices for dinner with lunch meat. Since we've been locked down we've only gotten three slices each for each of those meals. This place is run so fucked up for the past few weeks. Before we got locked down Ive been trying to get new clothes because every twelve months they are supposed to give you new clothes and they are refusing to give me them. All of my socks have holes in them. Last night it was -10 degrees outside and the air coming out of the vents was blowing cold air. The walls here are concrete with no insulation. Please write me.
We need to raise 300$ to pay of Josh's court costs. Since his trial was later then Brandon, Doug and Connor's, his fines have yet to be paid. They are now taking money out of the little bit of commisary he gets! Please help by donating to pay off his court fines and spreading the word!
We raised enough to get them all clothes, shoes, stamps and everything else on Josh, Doug, and Connor wish lists! (Brandon just wants books, if you can get him some please check the link below) But if you would still like to donate, you can always help by donating to their commissary funds here
Books If you send and of the Cleveland 4 books, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know so we can take it off the wishlist!
Josh's sentencing has been delayed again. It will be in October 7th at 1PM!
Josh's sentencing has been delayed again. It will be October 7th at 3pm! Judge is giving the prosecution a (short) time to rebutt the defense assertion that Josh doesn't qualify for the terrorism enhancement in sentencing.
He was never present for any meeting or discussion of 'why', and the gov hasn't proven a necessary component of the enhancement: intent to influence
Joshua's sentancing will still be infront of Judge Dowd at the Akron court house. He'll need all the support possible, so please attend! Pack the court room! There will be a meet and greet before In front of the court house at 2:30, and a rally directly after sentencing, also in front of the court house. Make sure to be on time, or they wont let you into the court room.
