Requests for Serious Release Consideration

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.

this is an overview showing examples of some of the most absurd cases> WHat are we holding these people? DOes revenge ever end?

this is one long scroll down of the most recent case summations sent- this is where we are woroking on the typing and organizing- 

this is the  longest standing blog for old law prisoner- also needs to be organized better - possible alphabetically by last name and by issue. We will see

Blog of kids waived into adult court- here are links to many individual blog of juvenles also. 
5)there are also many individual blogs of writers , artist and and litigators who are parole  eligible. 
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.

Jose Meniz 406884 WSPF
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.

To Governor Tony Evers, his transition team and staff and all concerned citizens:

  • 1. Name and Number: Kenneth L. Champion #095731.FLCI
Kenneth Champion

2. Birth date (BD)/Age Now: 3/12/61 (58 within 40days)

3. Date & age at incarceration: 8/18/93; I was 33 years old

4. Years in prison: Approximately 26 years

5. Offense description: I was charged and convicted of two counts of burglary, two counts of robbery and two counts of false imprisonment as a repeater on each counts.

6. Length of sentence: 76 years

7. Current Prison: Fox Lake Correctional Inst. FLCI

8. MR/PMR Date: 12/26/2045

9. Original parole eligibility date: April, 2014

10. Programs taken: I completed Thinking For A Change (CGIP) August 31, 2016. However, I am unable to enroll in my last program (AODA) due to sentence structure. Plus, FLCI does not offer the program. At my last parole hearing the commissioner stated that he will recommend that I be transferred to a facility that offers AODA.

11. Number of parole hearings/ number and length of deferments: I waived my initial parole hearing that would have been in April of 2014 because I was hoping for different outcome in court, but unfortunately that didn't happen. However, I was given a 24 month deferment.

12. Official reason for denial/deferment: The Parole chairman indicated that due to the nature of my crimes more prison time in the form of punishment was necessary. Yet, very little consideration was given toward my excellent prison conduct. Within the next couple of years I will be 60 years old and I will have 30 years in prison.

13. Do you have a verifiable support system? (Release support needs): YES. I have two sons and a daughter who all are willing to provide me with a place to live. One of my son recently, purchased a house so that I will have a place to live whenever I am  released on parole. We also have plans to start a mechanic business together. Moreover, I also have other family members who offer a lot of support.

Jared Hamm #155610
Jackson correctional Institution 

P.O. Box 233
Black River Falls, WI 54615

Convicted November, 1997 - lst Degree Intentional Homicide (party-to-a-crime PTAC)
My co-defendant and I went to sell marijuana to the victim. My co-defendant went out to the car to get the marijuana (Unbeknownst to me, he came back into the house with a shotgun and shot the victim.) While leaving the scene, I told him that my fingerprints were in the house, so we turned around and he set the house on fire to cover our tracks.
I admitted my part in the crime. I met bail and was in the community for eight months between the bail hearing and sentencing. The judge did not consider me a danger to the community at that time, he sentenced ma to life with "'a pardon eligibility date of eighteen (18) years, believing that was sufficient time for punishment.

Parole Commissioner LaCoste gave me a thirty-six (36) month parole deferment when I became eligible for parole after serving over eighteen (18) years, in October, 2015; followed by a thirty (30) month deferment in September, 2018. The reasons for denial continue to be:
1. Insufficient time served for punishment.
2. An unreasonable risk to the public.
3. Program participation has not been satisfactory (They, will not offer me the only program I need - Substance Abuse II - until the parole board endorses me to take It.). On my own, I did Substance Abuse I.

I will see the Parole Commission for the third time in May of 2021, when I will have served twenty-five (25) years - seven (7) years past what my sentencing judge considered sufficient time for punishment.

The Wisconsin Department of Corrections continues to state that my incarceration adjustment is positive, with no abuses or violent behavior, and that my Risk Scores and Risk Levels to the community are all LOW, as measured by its COMPAS Program.

Moreover, I had no infractions while out on bail while in the community for eight (8) months, before and 
during sentencing. 1 knew when I walked into 
the sentencing court that 
I would serve eighteen (18) years before 
parole - the sentencing 
judge set the date!

,, after being out on bail and serving
 the amount of time the judge ordered, how
 can it be that NOW I
 have not served sufficient time for 
punishment? Or that I'm NOW an 
unreasonable risk to the public?

James R. Schultz 018151
Jackson Correctional Institution P.O. Box 233
Black River Falls, WI 54615-0233
BD 1946 (71); Life sentence 
Case No. 85-CR-234 Green County, Wisconsin,

   I was found guilty of 1st degree intentional murder in the first half of a bifurcated (Not Guilty and Not Guilty by Reason of Mental Disease or Defect - NGI) trial. This was an accident, but my counsel insisted on my entering a MGI plea.
   There was no "intent" to commit murder. I was sleeping when my wife came home. How did I know she would go into the garage first, before going into the house?
   Nancy Schultz was not dead at the scene. The first law enforcement officer on the scene did not do CPR on her. The EMT contributed to her death by improper
intubation of the breathing tube. The tube was placed in her throat into her stomach instead of into her trachea (lungs). Nancy Schultz did not die of carbon monoxide asphyxiation; she died of plain suffocation from improper intubation, a new autopsy report should be ordered and conducted, independently, by someone other than a student of pathology (the study of disease).
   I could not refute the "intent" element because it was a bifurcated trial - that evidence is presented in the second phase of trial. I withdrew my plea before the second phase began because it was an accident, period, as I testified to during the first phase.
    However, the Court refused to correct my Judgment of Conviction (the document that states my plea, the jury verdict, and the sentence) to what actually happened in Court - i.e. that I was found guilty in the first half of an MGI trial and that I withdrew my plea before the second phase began.

Shouldn't the document that holds me in prison
reflect what actually happened in Court?

Has a huge  support system _mother daughter, sister a few other relatives, close friends

My names is Terrell Thomas, I am  42 years old and was 18 when I committed my crime, being arrested in July, 1995. …I will be the first to admit that my crime was senseless. it did not have to happen the way it did. I will always  take full responsibility for my actions , and can never/will never minimize the severity of my recklessness.

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.

5. Brief Description Of Offense
While on my way to the store, I was approached by a group of 6-8 guys,
who appeared very angry over or about certain events that had occurred at some party they had attended, in which they were involved in. (I was not at this party nor involved-in any events in reference to it, and overheard their conversation about these events) one of these men apparently mistook and believed me to be some person named "Peanut", despite the others in the group correcting him and telling him who I was known to be--("CC")--, and urging this guy to let's move on. But this guy refused to listen to the others, and continued on a course to follow and pursue me, even crossing the street, where I had done so. All of a a sudden I heard a girl yell; "That's my friend's Uncle Chris"!! The guy whose named I later found out to be "David" nevertheless continued to pursue and follow me, and about half-way down the block.
This guy just grabbed me out of the blue, upon which time my cousin just happened to appear from around the corner of the block, as we lived in the area, upon which time I heard an unexpected gunshot. After the gunshot, everybody scattered somewhat, and my cousin Al,(My codefendant) began chasing this David guy who grabbed me, so I started chasing my cousin "Al" trying to understand what this was all about and talk to him. But My cousin "Al" chased the guy David and shot at him, and when Al finally caught up to David, and I to Al, David had a pole in his hand. Al told this David guy to put the pole down, but hé refused. I told my cousin Al that I didn't want anybody to die, but because David wouldn't drop the pole my Cousin Al shot him anyway. Later, I heard that David Died, but Didn't believe it until I seen it on the news, upon which time I set my mind on going to police about the incident due to the overwhelming gut pain and stress I was experiencing over what my cousin had done. I also never knew that my cousin had shot the guy David more than once until Police informed me so.

Official Reason for denial

The parole board has repeatedly stated the official reason for denial/
deferment in my case are for these reasons
 (1) You have Not served sufficient time for punishment.
 (2) Your program participation has Not been satisfactory. Release at this time would involve an unreasonable risk to the public.

13. Do you have a verifiable support system? (Release support needs): I definitely have a verifiable support system, I am eligible for (SSI,1 will get an emergency loan from the (DOC) probation and parole to help pay for my basic living needs or necessities, and also medicade/medicare S-Care, all the while I stay with my family, and I also have $1.339.25 dollars in my release account to help lift the burden off of my family until I get my other resources started! and I'll work until I am unable if needed be-so I can get my own place.


   I, Andre Vance *081960-A, am writing to you all to inform you of the fact that the department of corrections under the recent Governors have purposely designed policy and criteria to make parole eligible inmates’ right to parole virtually none existing.    I have been personally denied for over 34 years now by them not allowing me to do my treatment programming. They, the(DOC) administration and staff at all of the institutions have been placing me on the back of a waiting list since I have a 103 years sentence and my mandatory release date is February 17th, 2033, and as a result every inmate with shorter sentences who need to get in the same treatment program that I need even if they were sentenced after me have been in and out of their treatment programs due to them having shorter sentence than I, while I've been on this waiting list for (S02) sexual offender treatment for over 34 years, and the parole board hasn't even tried, nor hasn't made any attempt to do anything to assist me, but
has repeatedly used this as a reason to deny me parole.
Moreover, this program the (S02) is only a one year program. I should have been paroled 9 years ago pursuant to the parole pack guidelines under the old Law criteria.
 Subsequently, the Fox Lake Correctional Institution (PSU)Pscho1ogical service unit and Program Review Committee (PRC) has unconstitutionally removed me from the (S02) treatment program after being on the waiting list for 34 years to the (SO4) treatment program all against the Wisconsin Statutes chapter 980.01-980.14, because I've never been petitioned by neither Department of Justice and District Attorney, nor, has I been found guilty after receiving a petition from neither source by a jury in a court of law pursuant to the allegations in a petition. More importantly, the 980 bill was not the law when I was convicted On April 18th, 1984, and the bill passed on June 2, 1994, more than 10 years after my conviction, this is why the Department Of Correction Director of the (A&E) Assessment and Evaluation of inmate programs lawfully placed me into the (S02) program at the time of my conviction. ( See the Wis. Adm. Code DOC chapters 302.09, 302.10 Subsection (d), 302.11, and 302.12 subsection -(2). History Cr. Register, August, 1979 No. 284, eff. 9-1-79 emerg. AM. )

 Mr. Evers, Transition team, and Staff, I have been patiently waiting for over 34 years to get in and out of this 1 year program the (S02) sexual treatment program so I can get out of prison to share my law abiding productive skills in general in our community and civilized society at large, I hope you all will investigate these matters, and assist me with my endeavors.

 Thank you all for your time, and your services.

BD:3/18/64 age 54
age at incarceration:26
years in prison so far 29 
offense and sentence: 1st degree intentional
Homicide and robbery/life with 25 years PED
Ist parole eligibility : Sept 2016

          I was incarcerated for robbery and homicide. I take full responsibility for my actions and am under no illusions that freedom is a right. I can say for certain that I'm not the girl who walked in, and I readily admit that prison saved my life Without going into details that are decades old, I will say that when I got to Taycheedah I knew it was the opportunity to make changes. I didn't want to ever get to the point where I'd be considered for release and have nothing to show for my incarceration, except the length of time I had served. I served every day trying to become a better person.
      My efforts leaned toward education. I got involved in every educational opportunity I could, and though I worked full time throughout my incarceration, and still do, my goals were always geared to higher education. After much time and effort I graduated from the University Wisconsin system with a bachelor's degree in business administration. It was difficult, challenging, and worth it. When I completed my bachelor's degree I was allowed, encouraged even, to enroll in a vocational program that was offered at ICI. I completed the Office Software Applications vocational program through Moraine Park Technical College in 2016. I was interested in furthering my education beyond a bachelor's degree and decided to research master's degree programs It's very difficult for students to pursue college degrees in the Wisconsin prison system because of financing, the lack of online options, etc It was imperative that I find a master's program that was offered in a print based delivery. I was successful, and with the permission of the education director at Taycheedah at the time, Mr. Gary Grueter, I applied. After a lengthy process I was accepted. I was encouraged to enroll. It was even discussed at my parole hearing that August. Since then I've continued to progress through the program. My goal of course, is to graduate with a Masters in Business Administration (MBA). I will not fall short of that goal, whether it's on the inside or outside.
         My education has opened doors and offered opportunities, including being invited by a University of Oshkosh communications professor to co-author an article regarding the benefits of a higher education in the prison system. I happily took that on. We were thrilled to be chosen for publication. Our article will be published May 1, 2019 in the international journal Critical Education We're proud of our work and believe in the cause.
My personal belief is that corrections serves two purposes: punishment and rehabilitation. It's a disservice to the taxpayers of this state to expect anything less. To use prison as a human warehouse is a waste of money, I believe Governor Evers sees that and will make efforts to roll back those policies."

I’m embarrassed by the person I was in my past and the poor decisions, I will continue to change for the better. My ultimate purpose is to give back and maybe stop some young men from going down the path I did. Today I’m a different person than I was 21 years ago.

REQUEST for SERIOUS RELEASE CONSIDERATION To Governor Tony Evers, his transition team' and staff:
1. Name and Number: Kenneth Jordan #65962
2. Birth date (BD) Feb 2', 1953 Age Now:65
3. date & age at incarceration: Dec. 16, 1973
4. Years in prison:  45 years
5. Offense description: armed robbery. Two co-defendants and myself attempted to rob a a tavern in the city of Milwaukee.
6. Length Of sentence:     Life plus 14 yrs.
7. Current Prison: John C. Burke Correctional Center
8. MRIPMR Date: Life
9. Original parole eligibility date: Jan. 1985
l0. Programs taken:   HSED, College Degree, certificates in welding, electrical residential wiring, and institutional food preparation
11. Number of parole hearings/ number and length of deferments: Have met with the
Parole Board/Commission since 1985, have received deferments for as low as 4 months and for as high as 12 months. My deferments have been elevated on occasions for no justifiable reason.
12.Official reason for denial/deferment: last deferral went from a 6 to an 11 because it was/still believed 1-hM- I have not served sufficient time for punishment and my release would pose an unreasonable risk to the public.
13. Do you have a verifiable support system? (Release support needs): Yes. I have earned an ample amount of funds through the work release program and have the support of family and friends.
    Although I was convicted of a very serious offense, I am not directly responsible for taking a life. I grew up in a very toxic environment on the South Side of Chicago. I dropped out of school before completing the eighth grade, but while in prison, I struggled to educate myself after realizing that my ending up in prison with a life sentence was directly related to my lack of education and the value of life. I am and shall always remain very remorseful over the role I played in the loss of life of another human being.
    If give the opportunity, I plan to reach out to my community and share my knowledge and experiences with young boys and girls so that they might be able to avoid spending their entire lives in prison as I have. These are not mere empty words, this is my life's mission and as I have tried to point out to all concerned, I don't believe a debt is by spending a certain amount of time in prison because some people have spent decades in prison only to  get and accrue another debt by committing more crime. I believe a debt is paid when someone positively benefited from your time in prison and what you have to offer in terms of knowledge and experience. It is a debt that I look forward to paying.

12. Unsatisfactory group participation and insufficient amount of time served were the board's main reasons for denying my parole. For years DOC staffers would not allow me to take any groups once I left WCI due to the length of my sentence.

13. Yes I do have a verifiable support system. I have family in Kenosha, Chicago & Minnesota.

     I was sentenced by Judge Patricia McMahon. In my sentencing transcripts she issued out a criteria for release for me. I've completed everything she instructed me to do. I go back to the parole board January 22, 2019 or so.
     In a recent court ruling State v Baron Walker, Case No 1996CF960232, Assistant District Attorney Thomas Potter (ADA Potter) and Attorney Craig Mastantuono came to a consensus that Baron Walker's sentence should be modified.
     Judge Sanders agreed with the assertions of ADA Potter and Mastantuono that Walker -   demonstrated the existence of a new factor based on Wisconsin's sharp change in parole policy since Governor Scott Walker was elected. ADA Potter agreed that the change in parole policy since Walker was sentenced - combined with  
Judge McMahon's comments during sentencing'- constituted a new factor for the purpose of granting a hearing on the motion based upon the specific facts and circumstances involved.
      In Walker's case, Mastantuono cited the specific language of Judge McMahon when Walker was sentenced in 1996
"You need extensive rehabilitation treatment but that needs to be in a secure setting so society's protected from your preying on them. And whether you accept that treatment or - not will have an impact on whether you will return to the community".
Baron Walker's Sentencing Hearing Transcripts, Case No. F960232, at p. 28. (Emphasis added)
      Amondo's case is analogous to Walker's case in many aspects. Under the pre-TIS sentencing law in Wisconsin, Amondo would be eligible for release from prison on parole after serving 25% of his sentence See Wis. Stats 304.06 (1) (b) and 302.11 Generally, a Wisconsin inmate sentenced prior to TIS would be expected to complete rehabilitative programming in -prison in order to demonstrate fitness to be released after reaching parole eligibility.
      Moreover, Judge McMahon - who also sentenced Walker - addressed the issue of being fit for release squarely during Amondo's sentencing hearing with the following comments:
Prison is the only answer. We don’t really have an answer for this type of crime but prison certainly meets the needs for protection, and deterrence, at least for the period of time that you are in custody. Whether it will provide all of the rehabilitative needs this court can't answer that. Much of that depends upon you; what you decide to make of it, what you decide to do with your time and whether you will take advantage of what is offered in the institution... You will return to the community at some point. When and if you do is up to you and the changes you make... And to receive any rehabilitation that is appropriate. You are directed for appropriate educational training. Complete your GED or other education. Vocational needs, alcohol and drug treatment deemed appropriate.., there are opportunities in the institution to obtain additional education and vocational training that would be a benefit to you and the community at large.
I have complied with the judge's instruction.
Judge McMahon's statements during the sentencing hearings of Amondo and Walker are strikingly similar in nature, echoing warnings that how well they accepted treatment and rehabilitation in prison would bear on their release. Walker has been released but I am still in prison. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

BD 1965, 53 y.o.; age 31 when incarcerated-21 year in so far.
robbery.burglary,second -degree sexual assault, given 62 years:/original parole date 2013

To: Governor Tony Evers & Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes, His Transition Team and Staff Members

My name is Steven AL. McCarver, DOC #131757.

Birth date and age: My date of birth is 8-1-1965; I am 53-years old as of this day
age at incarceration: I was 32-years of age when I was incarcerated.
Offense description:I have 3-counts; #1 Burglary, #2 Robbery, #3 Sexual Assault, all 3 counts stem from one act that took only about 5-minutes. 22-years also was added as Habitual Criminality.
Count #1, 2nd Degree Sexual Assault, 30-years
Count #2, Robbery,   16-years
Count #3, Burglary,  16-years

PMR/MR date: The Courts used two past minor tickets and one felony. That felony was for not returning to the (C.C.C.) work release center, after going out to look for a job. To enhance my sentence. All under P.M.R. P.M.R. date is 2060.
My original parole eligibility date : 2013.

Programs taken; County Jail- Anger Management, G.E.D. When I was sent out-of-state due to overcrowding, AODA Level 6-I kept a job while there for 3-years. At Waupun; between 2003-2010, I got my H.S.E.D. and C.G.I.P. 1 & 2 and I kept a job. At Redgranite; I did Brief Intervention Tools (BITS), Overcoming Thinking Traps; ReEntry programs, Transportation Module; Family Support Module,
all completed during year of 2016.

Denied Education and treatment programs: However, at each institution I went to, (Waupun & Redgranite) over the years, I was told, I had too much timed to my P.M.R. date and that I would not get into any Educational Trade Programs or Treatment Programs. I even went 13-years without any kind of tickets. To be told that I must wait until I'm within a year of my M.R. date before I can take my needed program; took all the hope I had. I've been told by the P.R.C. Committee that I am here just to do my time.

Number of parole hearings and length of deferments. First parole hearing was 2013; one minor ticket between 200 and 2013, even with all my program completion, I was still given a 3-year deferment. Second parole hearing, was 2016, 2-Pre-Release Programs, and keeping a job while at R.G.C.I. I was given a 6-year deferment.

Official Reason for Denial & Deferment; First Parole denial & deferment is because, program participation has not been satisfactory. Still a risk to the public at this time, have not served sufficient time for punishment. Second denial & deferment was, two more tickets, adjustment time, criminal history and nature of crime, unmet treatment needs, age, clear risk to public, have not served sufficient time for punishment; Do I have a verifiable support system? Yes, I do. However, over the years they also have lost hope. I have 7-grown kids and step-kids, 2-Brothers, Kids Mother, Mother, and I return to my church.

I would like to say, I have no other sexual assault convictions, my victim was not penetrated, and the crime in whole was only 5-minutes. I am not trying to depreciate my crime, cause I know what I did was truly horrific to my victim and her family, and that shame will be with me to my death.

I tried everything in my power to show everyone that I have changed and that I am ready for another chance. Any man who commits another felony crime, after doing as much time as I have, after given a second chance, is not worthy of another chance. I am asking for a Second Chance.
Thank You For Your Time

12. Official reason for denial/deferment: That Your program participation has NOT been satisfactory; Release at this time would involve an unreasonable risk to the public and You have NOT served sufficient time for punishment.

13. Do you have a verifiable support system ? Release support needs
I do have a verifiable support system. I have family and friends who will help provide support upon my release.

       This is my 1st Adult incarceration and I have never been incarcerated as a Juvenile. I have been constantly denied parole even though I have done everything asked of me. It is only because of prison Rules and Policies that don't allow inmates to be enrolled-in our programs until we are 3 to 1 year of being released (M.R.) or that we get a Recommendation by the Parole Board, that I haven't completed the SO-2 program. Even though I was endorsed by the Parole Board to be enrolled into the SO-2 program at my last Parole hearing, with a recommendation that R.G.C.I. officials transfer me out to a prison that can enroll me into the program, and will allow me to have it completed prior to my seeing the Parole Board again in August 2019; the R.G.C.I., Program Review Committee refused my request for a early P.R.C. hearing, to be transferred out to a Prison that could have me enrolled right away. The P.R.C. justification was that I could do the program here at R.G.C.I., whenever it comes available, while knowing that R.G.C.I., will not have the program available until sometime in July 2019; One month before I am due to see the Parole Board again. This is contrary to the Parole Board objective, so they have in essence turned a 10 month defer into a 18 month defer, because the program takes 9 months to complete, which if I'm enrolled into the program, in July 2019 I won't be done completed until sometime around April 2020.
       I believe I am ready to be released back in to Society right now, and have been ready for several years. I have not had a Major Conduct report since 2004 and haven't had a Minor Conduct report since 2002; (Well over 14 or 16 years)
     I accept responsibility for my participation in my crimes, and I know if I'm released that I will never see the inside of a prison cell again. I have made dramatic changes in my life and I am not the same person I was 30 years ago. I have done more time than men who have committed Murder and been back to prison on 3 or 6 separate occasions. I was young and very immature when I was incarcerated and I've learned how to value life and the life a well being of others. I've hurt my victims, my family, my children and friends, and above all I hurt myself, and not a moment goes by that I don't regret the poor choices I made and God knows I wish I could change them, but I know that's not possible, but what I can change is my future and help youths to avoid making the same mistakes I made in my adolescence.
     All I ask is for a opportunity. I can complete the SO-2 program on the streets they have classes in Beaver Dam and other places. I score low on the COMPAS DAI Legacy test, which showed I would more than likely never recommit the crime. I pray that you will consider giving me the opportunity to show you that it's true. Thanks for your time, services and considerations.

1, Ronald James Schmitt - Register No. 36239
2. D.O.B. 10/13/1943 on 
10-13-2018 I turned 75 years old

3. I was 26 years old in 1969 at time of my 
original incarceration.I was 33 years old in
 1986 at time of my current 59 year sentence: 

4. Since 1969 I've served a total of 47 years. On my current 59 year sentence I served 33 years (1986-2019) Since my sentence pre-dates the Truth-In-Sentencing 'I’m eligible for parole after serving 25% of sentence per-Wis. Statute § 304, 06(1) (b)
   I've served over twice the amount of time (45%) set forth by this State Statue stated above.
5. 1986: Two counts of first degree sexual assault, and one count of mask armed robbery:
6. Sentenced to two consecutive terms of 22, 22, and 15 years, for a total of 59 years:
7. I reside at a medium security prison, at the Stanley Correctional Institution: I have maintained "medium-security" status over the past twenty (20) years now:
8. My Mandatory Release Date is 716/2026. By 7-6-2019, I'll have 7 years loft to serve:
9. My original parole eligibility date was 8-12-2001: Some eighteen (18) years ago:
10. In 2001 and 2005 I received 48-month. deferment: Between .2009-2018 I received eleven (11) consecutive 12-month deferments Since 2009, totaling 13 deferments since 2001: On 2/11/2019 I expect to receive my fourteenth (14) deferments with no end in sight:
11. The three standard reasons, for stamping of my many deferments follows;
 1. Past criminal history (which will never change)..
 2. Not having served enough time for "punishment." and,
 3. Release would involve an unreasonable risk to the public:
12. I have completed every program made available to me, and some not made available to me (some two and three times) while earning 94 Certificates:

Despite adversity, I survived due to my strong traits of perseverance/
tenacity coupled with virtue which means everything,1 prevailed and reached every one of my goals:
13. Last major Conduct Report on file was in 1989 (some 30 years ago). 14. I have favorable parole plans to live with my sister Judy Yates and family in Wagoner, South Carolina.

The "threshold" and factors which are significant are the following:
(1) Stable residency:
(2) Christian guidance:
(3) Financial independence, with about $8000.00 in my savings account, I've earned enough Social "Security credits to get about $1000.00 a month, and I can get VA benefits, medical, etc. And,
(4) Health Social Life Environments, with positive-enhancing leisure time activities:
My Value Doesn't Decrease Based Upon My Parole commissioners Inability to See My Worth. I pray that I won't run out of life before I run out of what time I have left to serve, so I that I can die at home with loved ones.

 Please Governor Evers don't let my success story go to my grave with me. There is no “wrong" time to do what is "right the interest of justice. .

Lamont Moore  246986  JCI  
BD 1975, age 43
      Lamont was convicted 1993,saw parole board first time in 2017 after serving 25 years and was endorsed for AODA, his final program. This program he completed in April 2018. He then got a conduct report for excessive phone use and he walked off in disgust when told he was receiving a CR , This conduct then was the main subject of the parole hearing- as “aggression: and was used to deny his parole. The letter below explains this and more.
       He has completed his programs, schooling and vocations. He is a certified RVA(?) and PCA(?) and has tutored a Microsoft office program. He became deeply involved in the PAWS program and training puppies and has maintained a job “throughout this struggle”. He tutors in JCI for AODA, T4C, anger management, and social skills . He tried to enroll in a veterinary technology program and was denied because he is in prison and wonders what he can do now? “Clearly the thought of redemption and second chances are laughable matters in Wisconsin. It has not been lost in my mind that I killed someone. I am deeply apologetic for destroying the familial bond amongst both our loved ones. as well as the trust in the community. I am empathetic and sympathetic to this situation. And as a juvenile, I messed up, As a grown man, I’m looking to pay my debts to society while walking amongst the community instead of being lock up as a monster.

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:

Hello and blessings. My name is Dwight Feilbach and I got you're email
address from another inmate and he told me to email you about receiving
a form about parole. I have been in since 8-6-2004 and I have seen parole
 five times now. Three 24 month defers and two 12 month defers.
 I completed my SOT,,ADOA, DV, and will finish my vocational on 2-22-19
 and will have all programs finished. I am serving 20 years out of a thirty
 year sentence, and I am down to five and a half years left but am told
 due to my crime I need to serve more time. I did commit a sex offense
 but all have completed program for my offense.  All I know is it still hurts that my two boys have grown up with out me these past fourteen and a half years and hope to be released some day. Oh also I am no longer a 980 candidate. Thanks so much for you passion to help us and hope to hear from you about this. God bless. Respectfully, Dwight Feilbach.

5.   While trying to break up a bar fight, I was attacked by one of the patrons fighting, because he was angry at me not allowing him and the other guy to continue to fight. We fought,I left,tryinq to hurry out of the place away from the fray. In my haste, I returned back to the establishment to retrieve my driver’s license which I had just gotten reinstated that day due because of not
paying traffic fines in the past. Needed my license for work as I worked for Waukesha county Recycling as a forklift driver, and also
due to my frequent travel between Illinois and Wisconsin, to be with my wife, and children I had from a previous relationship. Upon return to establishment, and while leaving being half out the door, bartender pursued me with a glass ashtray as if he was about to hit me in the Back of the head with it and I swung back wildly to get him off me so that I could continue to get out of there as I had already been attacked and sucker-punched once when not looking earlier after breaking up initial fight.. In my swinging back wildly while half out the door, coupled with the victim’s momentum in chasing me with the glass ashtray, he ran into the knife and unfortunately died. Even the medical examiner said he ran into the knife. I kept a knife at my side for cutting plastic ties off newspaper bundles at the recycling plant.   

A guy in the same county, same D.A.s got only 10 gears for virtually identical facts with the exception of location. He was White. I got 35 years. I'm black. I never meant to take a life, I was just trying to defend myself, and thought the guy who attacked me the first time was the bartender, even though the bar tender's boss thought the bartender intended to follow me outside and fight me Many prison officials feel and have told me that they don't feel I should've received the harsh sentence I received due the facts and circumstances of my case.

 programs taken –vocational completed
Statement summary : I have been incarcerated for over 20 years now and have been in a minimum for almost 15 years. The PRC Board gave me a 10 year override while I was in Columbia Correctional Inst. in 2004 and I have been in minimum since then.
I feel that with my positive institution adjustment I should at least be in a secure minimum institution working my way through the system in order for me to properly reenter the community. While at my last PRC I was told that the only way I could get to a minimum institution was that the parole board would have to recommend it. But PRC can recommend me because they gave me the override to Stanley 15 years ago.

Introduction to form below: I decided to fill out the form and sent it because I am not NOW a violent offender. I committed my crime 23 years ago when I was a lost 16 year old kid. I am a 40 year old man now. I have been doing all of the programs that the WDOC will let me do. I have been meeting with the woman I shot on November 4th, 1995 at least once per year, Jackie Millar, through the Restorative Justice Project at the UW- Madison Law school and I figured that if she can forgive me and see me as a human being maybe the new Tony Evers government can as well .

The judge gave me boot camp but Wisconsin law indicated violence cases can't receive boot camp which would have reduced my sentence.

(Idea he would like help implementing:)
I created an ideal that will stop robbery by 70% around the USA. I would love for Tony Evers help plus this is a billion dollar safety idea. I wrote a book for kids to stop gun violence . I been through it and changed my ways of gun violence for good. I'm willing to work with community  service in exchange after release. I 'll still do this on  own if not but this will look very good for the new governor

I'm aware of the seriousness of my taking Rubry's life and I've take responsibility for my actions. I believe in my heart that I'm a better person today than I was many years ago. I've greatly underestimated how much freedom , life and family truly mean to me. I’ve had time to change my ways of thinking and even been working in the community to show I’m ready for another chance to be free and live responsibly. So I ask you Governor Evers to give me a second chance.
Sincerely, Lester P Stephens

Jeffrey Lamont Watson
Jeffrey Lamont Watson, Sr.

My name is Jeffrey Lamont Watson, Sr. (DOC 124344), dob 6-13-65. I am currently 53 years old. I was arrested October of 1996, at the Jeffrey Lamont Watson, Sr. age of 31. I have been in prison for 22 years, 3 months. My charges are armed robbery and attempted armed robbery, with a knife. For the armed robbery I was sentenced to 40 years and the attempted robber for 20 years, both the maximum allowable sentences. I also got 3 years and 8 months and 15 days for revocation. My custody level is medium here at Redgranite. My M.R. is 2039 and P.M.R. is applied. My eligibility for parole was after 15 years.

At first hearing (2011) I received a deferment of 36 months. The examiner expressed that normally he gives a deferment of
60 months to inmates off the bat, with my kind of time (long), but because of my attitude and excellent behavior a 36 was appropriate. Next time a defer of 18 was given.

 The 3rd hearing I received a 24 from the examiner, then the chairman increased it further to 36 after my custody level was raised because of 3 major tickets (misuse of prescription medication) within 6 weeks. I became addicted to a med prescribed for anxiety, till then, I hadn't had a major ticket for close to 10-1/2 years. At a December 2018 hearing I received a defer of 12 down from the 36. The reasons for denial of a grant for parole were the same; unreasonable risk to public because I hadn't taken program (CGI) 'currently "Thinking for change," which is now no longer needed according to Compass scores. Note: the reason I couldn't take the program because of the policy inmates must be within 1 year of release before allowed to participate.

 After reviewing the 12 month defer the examiner stated "if you stay out of trouble I'd look into endorse for a lower custody level." Note: I am not a lifer. A lower custody level (transition) means a facility, minimum, with a fence electrified just like this one for 3-5 years, then a facility without a fence for another 2-4 years. That's what’s called transition because they don't
want to shock or overwhelm me. If that's truly the case I should never be allowed a "smart phone." Sorry for humor about a suppressive system. I asked my social worker, "Why the parole board needed to give me an
endorsement in-order for me to be lowered in custody and I'm not a lifer," she, Ms. Bauer replied "It's policy." I asked "written policy," and she replied, "No."

The programs I've attended and taken are many from B.R.I.C.K. (GBCI) that speaks to at-risk teens, as the Youth Awareness Program (YAP) (OSCI), Culinary Arts graduate/instructor (OSCI), special needs trainer, for inmates that are disabled (OSCI, RGCI), Wellness Program (WCI, RGCI), actually stayed in Waupun (WCL's B.H.V) an extra year just to participate in more voluntary programs that deal with self, Get Purpose Resume' prep., Public Speaking, Core Values, etc. (RGCI) Also the excellent
mental health work done at Wisconsin Resource Center (WRC) with counselors instructors, programs, etc. that are made up of my "tools" I use in everyday life.

As you might not expect, mine is a story of joy ... after a positive urinalysis for THC in 1998, as a consequence, it used to be you received 3 days in seg. (GBCI) but I received 60 days no-contact visits (visit through glass). The same or next day I received a visit and instead of going right into the visiting room, I had to turn left, into a room similar to county jail visiting, where my wife and young son (4-1/2-5 yrs) were waiting. He, Jeffrey Jr. was standing on the arm-rest and when seeing me he asked, "Daddy how come I can't hug you?" I looked at my wife, who had a look I've never seen before, best described as anguish. I replied,. "Daddy was bad," again he spoke, "What did you do Daddy?" again I looked at my wife, same expression, I told him, "Don't worry Daddy will not do it again."

 In those moments I realized my actions/ consequences there of, have a "ripple affect." I had never "seen" or "heard" those radiating outward ripples from my wake until that day! That moment! A committed decision to change was made in those moments. Some 20 years later I have worked hard, with constant fears of regret of those left in my wake then many years ago.

At OSCI I volunteered for a program called "Restorative Justice," to which victims of all types of crimes and other speakers came into the prison and participated. It was an intimate circle. They didn't want our "sorrys," they wanted not only to know that our crime-doing was in our past, but our progress and accepting responsibility for our progression forward. Always with
their parting, "We're proud of you all" Ten (10) years later after falling down a few times, the difference being, as God guides, a deepening awareness of myself (perceptions) and that journey of myself is a joy, truly, never to let a door close on a skeleton in the closet. That is liberating! The vulnerability without the mask is pretty cool because its honest and pure. In our lives everything good has an opportunity when allowed by conscious awareness to usher in peace of mind and heart.

My support systems range from uncles, cousins, sons, aunts who would gladly lend me a couch for 60-180 days or more, to community resources and of the giving back of my experiences which wisdom is now attached. I beg as you review-my plea that staff (bosses, teachers, counselors, GO's, etc.) at every institution where possible, actually be spoken to, to view me, Jeffrey L. Watson, Sr., from a few sheets of paper is unfair and impractical. Social workers do not see day-to-day exchanges in social situations as other staff.
What once was, is no more of criminal behavior, replaced by a willingness of positive, honest, real and helpful to mankind. I implore you to let me continue with God's guidance on the outside. Thank you for your consideration...
humbly submitted,

Andrew Klein
