An old addiction got the best of the writer and ensnared him in the law’s web. Despite intense pressure and a bleak future, he won’t give in to the state’s power, and keeps on rebelling.
Hey man! Great 2 hear from you… I received two letters from you this week. The first had a questionnaire enclosed…Can you send 10-12 of these and I’ll get the guys to fill them out! Also got stamps, it will help me write all these agencies for our attack on PayTel. Aramark commissary is NEXT! One at a time. I can possibly ‘tie’ the pencil rule into the phones like this: Both the cost of phone calls and regulation of pencils hinder our right to due process by impeding our access to courts, contact with legal representation, and chilling our sense of privacy of correspondence by having to write in the dayroom under camera and other prying eyes. No, that won’t work…best to leave the phone issue by itself, right? Of which I ask you to go to WalMart or follow directions from the PayTel website and put a $10 credit on your phone. Why? Because it gives you “standing” in the inevitable lawsuit. You will have been affected by the PRICE GOUGING and UNFAIR TRADE PRACTICE. This goes out to anybody at IOA who have either put PayTel on their phone or bought an inmate a calling card.
Lawyer came Sunday and it’s official. The state’s plea offer is 144-185 months (12-15 ½ years). Total theft and damage of the new charges is under $1,000. So where is the judicial economy in that? My lawyer says drug court is out of the question. The ADA wants me to do active time.
My original charges that I was in here for last year I still have not been to trial on, and the 12-15 ½ years includes those (that I’m not guilty of!) and the pressure from that episode is a major contributor to my relapsing!! They have no compassion. If I do not make bond I will spend the rest of my life in prison, basically.
…For now, I’ll work on the complaint against PayTel.
