A WORK IN PROGRESS- all ideas welcome
With excitement of anew governor and the possibility of real justice, FFUP received many mnany release requests from old law prisoners long long overdue for release and needed back in their communities. Below are links to some old blogs featuring parole eligible prisoners and new attempts at trying to post newly arrived case sumaries in a way that is releavant and will be read. These posts will be changing radically in the near future as we get help and we begin to figure out how to give these too long incarcerated people an effective voice.
now to cases:
ALL OLD Law prisoner below have these things in common.
1) ALL are eligible for release.
2) have these two phrases given for why they are not out:
a)You have not served enough time for punishment
b) Release at this time would be too great a risk to the public
3) they were all imprisoned 2000 or earlier and have been in prison at least 18 years.
4)They are all over 30 and are statistically less likely to committee crime than their younger counterparts
5) They were all eligible for parole after serving 25 % of their sentence, a person with a life sentence being eligible after 12 1/2 years.
6) they spent many years in prison before TIS came in and took advantage of many programs including getting college degrees while in prions- all cut when TIS arrived and the prison boom happened.

I got sentenced to 20 years in prison for selling drugs back in 2000. Of the 20 years I have 23 months left. In a few weeks I'm going to file for me 85% .If I get it, I would be getting deported back to Mexico. I was 18 years old when I came to prison. the judge that sentenced me gave me boot camp,or minimum! I was in medium custody for 10 years. I got a ticket and that sent me here. I got okayed to medium custody 9 months ago but it is taking a long time to get to medium because of the over crowding of the prisons.

At 42, I am nowhere near that 18 year young teenager. I was so anger, hopeless, lost, due to unresolved wounds and traumatic situations. I experienced growing up in the 53206 area code. With God’s help. I have worked hard over the years to become the man I am today. I am not purpose driven to live righteously and determined to create ripple effects of positivity. I am truly rehabilitated, restored, and redeemed . I am so ready to contribute and give back to the society/community I took so much from.
Bless me with that second chance- there is so much hope i have to share with so many youths and others that are hopeless and lost.

Walter Kuranda 200404; RGCI ;PO Box 925;Red Granite, WI 54970
Intro to his plea below: "If ever we scheduled for release are to feel ourselves a part of the whole inwardly, all involved must understand much is involved in fulfilling this condition. This connectedness must be developed through Something outwardly! If we're not ,then, like a painter who remains idle, disreguard withholds the life force formlessly. Hindered by such our lives take on act of expendability.
Not minimizing the time with which all involved fulfills this condition of true connectedness reflects a misgiving revelation of inequality :i.e."my time's not valued." One cannot reasonably value the connecting premes :"united we stand"with a force that continues enacting in equality. Such is contradictory to true united precepts and such tyranny and wrong lead inevitably to decay, whereas Freedom and right, however hard may be the struggle, always proves resistless
I'm a 48 yr old male born 2/1970. I've been in prisons my whole adult life except 8 months.Currently since 1997 for my current offense of armed robbery with a broken BBgun. After weeks out of work my girl friend and myself were living out of my car when she told me she was pregnant with our child and needed to see the doctor soon.
Whereupon out of desperation I robbed a pizza hut and placed 4 employees in a walking cooler and thus 4 counts of false imprisonment were added. I was sentenced to 24 years on the robbery and 4 yrs on each false imprisonment charge. Thus 40 years in addition to 2 yrs 9 months revocation.My PMR is therefore. 12 13 2026. continued - click on link:
