Well, I read the paper on the forum. I’m not really sure, it just seems like they didn’t cover my issues, and then the 42 letters, if true, would be like 8% of the inmates. Hell I sent at least 3 on 4 different topics: food, medical & dental, lawyers taking too many clients. You could imagine guys what it’s like in here, not able to defend yourself at all, with lawyers that won’t answer our letters, mail, email, and for those who have loved ones or friends on the outside to aid in communication with your lawyer, they still aren’t able to contact them for months on going! As my case gets weaker, theirs gets stronger! Continue reading
Hello. I am well. I did get the books…I have a court date coming up on the 5th and I have no idea what is going to happen that day because I have not seen my lawyer in sometime. I hope all is well, but God only knows. I pray that it will be okay daily, but if you don’t have money to fight them you are at the mercy of the courts. And so I wait.
I hope that upon receiving this letter you guys at Inside-Outside Alliance are in good health and spirits. I myself am doing o.k., trying to stay strong.
I was recently sentenced for a crime that I did not commit due to the corrupt system of Durham County. My attorney knew months before I was sentenced that I was innocent, but due to the nature of the crime, she had already found me guilty before even looking at the actual evidence. Even after she got the evidence needed to prove my innocence, she did nothing to help me, she filed no motions for dismissal or for anything else that could help my case. Continue reading
What’s going on? How are you doing? Fine I hope and all is good and well with you and IOA family and supporters. As for myself, I’m okay, I guess being that I’m still breathing. I want to apologize for not responding to your letters sooner, but I’ve been going through some things. Things that probably 95%, if not 100% of us Durham County Jail Detainees are going through that involves the court system. Things like:
- Being held under outrageous bonds (ransoms).
- Not hearing/seeing attorneys for months at a time.
- Being held for bogus charges (He say/she say/word of mouth).
I have a couple of issues I need your help with. The first one is my denture plate has still not been fixed and this problem has been going on since 8-25-15. That was a lot of days ago and I am in pain everyday because I have to put them in to eat and when I do they cut the inside of my mouth and my gums and when I had my lawyer call and ask what is taking so long, they being medical talked to her like she was a piece of shit and would not tell her anything. That is my lawyer and she cannot get a straight answer from them so you know I cannot. Continue reading
the following letter was dated June 22, but was received more than a month later. We don’t blame the USPS.

I hope this letter finds you and everyone at Inside-Outside Alliance in good health and excellent spirits. I myself am doing great and very happy to know that we have such caring and supportive people at Inside-Outside. I am very grateful to each and everyone of you for everything you are doing for us here at the Durham County Detention Center. Things have changed considerably for us, we are now coming out of lockback 4 hours daily, and as of next month (July), the jail will be working with a new telephone company, something we all hope will be for the better.
