Hello ,
My name is Vincent Pope, I am a thirty year old Leo. I am a single black male . I am five foot eleven inches, 175 pounds., I have short hair, dark brown eyes and have a peanut butter complexion. A few things about myself: I have a 5 year old son, I enjoy writing poetry and books. Before I earned this case I worked as a dog trainer. I listen to all kinds of music, I also enjoy spending time with my son. I like to cook, play chess, watch movies and play sports. I believe a woman should be treated with the utmost respect, rather in friendship or in relationship. I also believe no relationship is possible without first starting a relationship. I believe friendships are very important. Outgoing, very intelligent and can always keep you with a smile on your face. I believe communication, trust, truthfulness and honesty, loyalty and respect makes any type of relationship last. It is my belief that things should be fifty-fifty in my type of relationship. I am looking for a lady friend whom I have fun with, learn from, and who will not be judgmental. I am looking for friendship with possibility of more. If you are the one I seek, I would like to hear from you. Have a nice day.

I find myself often staring out of the window of my cell for hours. So I got to thinking how cool it would be to have penpal. I have been staffed here at Dodge Correctional since September 2nd and do not know how much longer I will be here as I have been told it take awhile to be staffed into Max. Saddly , the max prisons are full.
Okay- so here I am waiting and will tell you a little about myself. I'm 52 years old in good shape and I am an adventurer. I love nature. Fact is , seldom was inside my house-one reason this prison thing is tough. But I can hack IT!!
I'm single with 3 daughters and two granddaughters. My oldest and grandkids are living on the air base in Germany. My twins are at home and I pray doing the right thing. But I wouldn't be much of a dad if I didn't worry. Also, I 'm sure you hear this a lot! But I have been sentenced to life for a crime I did not commit. Wisconsin has this law called "party to a crime". Add that very loose law with a crook in the Kenosha DA and there you have it!!
So I am in need of some penpal and being a people person, I'll look at this as sort of an adventure.

Sincerely, John M Navigato

DELAUREN Omar Gordon SR- a low to medium- maintenance man looking for something similar in a counterpart.
meat and potatoes- I'm sane and solid and sexy! And there is nothing superficial about me. I'm 100% Toro! So if you are a Queen who has been in search of something pure and unadulterated, you need to look no further than me.
Granted I'm "on lock", I possess redeemable qualities and bring much to the table. So it is only a matter of one (you) having the ability to demonstrate an "open mind" and "creativity" towards the ordeal I'm in.
From what I've gathered, the caliber of men who exist out there nowadays lack substance and are overrated. So if you are a Queen with an urge and taste for something new, try me and see ow you like the flavor.
I'm in need of a friend, someone to exchange warm, subtle thoughts with on a letter to letter basis to help take the edge off the ay and fill the void. And I am willing to reciprocate.
Take care and stay beautiful!

I am now 30rys old and have been in prison is I was 17yrs old. My history is as follows:
•I grew up in the inner city in a single parent home along with 4 sisters,2 brothers,and an abusive mother.She left my father when I was about 5yrs old ,moving from St. Louis,MO to the state of Wisconsin.She left him because he was cheating on her with another woman,he let me know,and I told her.My father was a true criminal and as time and space allowed he taught me everything he knew.My mother allowed it because it brung money into the house, which meant that she did not have to work as hard.At the same time I somehow became her punching bag when she got made or stressed. School didn't matter as long as I was bringing money into the house,so like any child who is not forced to go to school I didn't go.When I turned 15yrs old I decided to changed for the better.I attempted to leave the criminal lifestyle behind me.I had been living it since I was lOyrs old even though it was all I knew I knew it was right.My change was met with resistence from family and friends.For every one person I had trying to help me I had 100 people trying to hurt me.Everything I tried was stopped by someone who wanted me to continue doing crime.I found work only to have someone close to me get me fired.I tried to go back to school but my mother refused to reinstate me.When I was 17yrs old, with everyone around me against and my mother deciding to move to Dallas Texas,I was left alone.In fit of rage and hurt I killed a man.I was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.I can't complain,in one way I took a life and in return my life was taking in another way my life was taken.Since I have been incarcerated I have made educating myself and understanding , people two of my main goals.I have mostly studied psychology but I also enjoy learning about different places and cultures.I don't have any family so I am looking for someone to bond with,someone to converse with and call a friend.My biggest obstacle is finding individuals who are willing to look past me being incarcerated and willing to commit to a takes time,patience,and alot of understanding.I believe that anyone can be friends,regardless of race or where they are in life (physically and/or mentally),if they try.I welcome all who are willing to reply...

I'm placing this ad I hopes of finding a true friend and maybe a special someone to share my dreams ,hopes, fears and goals with. I've never had a true solid friend because of the life I was living. In never really experienced the love of woman where love came for the heart. Being that I'm making changes in my life and have a different outlook on life, I would like to experience friendship and love, if it's possible. I would love for a woman to show me a different side of life and help me complete myself. I would love to find my soul mate some day.
If you can find it in your heart to give a man like me a chance to be a part of your life I promise to be the bestest friend/penpal you could ever have. I'm a different person than I as before, and I'm really trying to be as loyal and genuine as I possibly can.

To that special someone.

A lot has changed in the past two years, fought a couple cases and my girl traded places. But it's okay, I refuse to let the coldness of someone else's heart harden mine. I'm sure there's a woman out there who appreciates the making of a good man. I know I'm not perfect, I only strive to do better. Right now I stand alone reaching out for an independent, secure, ambitious, goal oriented woman who knows what she wants and is not afraid to get it. That's a reflection of me, some people wait on their big break, I believe in creating my big break> I'm not caught up on looks. The most beautiful woman could have a cold soul. I value character, integrity and most of all loyalty. I know the unfortunate circumstances that surround me, but if you keep an open mind it's perfect timing.
Your truly, Curtis Jackson

Hello, My name is Julius Wallace. i am 52 years old, 5’11”, wt.209, blue eyes and gray hair. I am a born again Christian. Things I enjoy are cooking, gardening, walks along the beach,ice skating, riding bicycles and spending quality time with whom I am with.
As you can see, I enjoy a lot of things and more than I have mentioned. One of the most thing I care about is the person I am with. I am honest with them and do not cheat on them, for I feel if I have to look elsewhere, then there is no reaon for us to be together and same goes for her as well.
I do not enjoy talking about my past relationships and do not inquiire about hers either. They are just that- PAST. There is nothing either of us can do about them and they have no room in our present or even future if that happens.
Yes I am looking for someone to be with in long term, but will be happy with penpal and friendship to start. If you are the kind of person that enjoys the above mentioned , then we have a good starting point even if it is just a few. You may have other interests that I have not mentioned but I also enjoy.
Well , I hope to hear from you soon.

Embraced by Words

My name is Herbert Matthew Burrows
I am a man of moderation and fortitude. I walk forth each day with respect/ honesty, and loyalty. I strongly believe these elements contain a cause to an in depth friendship.
I'm attracted to a woman of self-awareness and courage, an optimistic woman with a great personality and a wonderful sense of humor, a woman who is comfortable with herself as a person.
1 carry myself in a moderate tone, with morals, values, and the ability to make just decisions in the light that may impact towards a productive outlook for a collective future.
We learn the values of a thing when we have lost it. Honestly, I've never possessed such an inspired vision until this point in my life. What I do possess is the desire for happiness which is the incentive that moves us in all our undertakings.

An Essay: Ghetto Hero

I want to acknowledge the fact that this message is solely intended to recognize some of the struggles our communities face, further give a sense of purpose for the youth , those children who have not yet grown into their position in life, Provide hope for one’ circumstances regardless of the situation, and encourage through means of proper education and guidance.
The content of this article is merely intended to bring this struggle to light.

Ghetto Hero

Every Ghetto across America has a hero: one improvised community sees as the heart of unity, the nexus of balance, within a common struggle.
A struggle, one that has yet found peace: A lost soul- a child- one that is unconscious of the life he or she will live. Reflecting personality traits yet to be educated on. The blind leading the blind.
But before I drift further into the midst of events, let me express the very existing dimension that sprung forth such an elaborate cause contrary allow me to burden the lack of fortitude, vision and insight for this all too evident birth in America.
A ghetto is a poor community with no fair chance of acceptance. It lacks resources, appropriate government funding, housing, and is the downside of a local state economy. Within these communities there is an urgent voice for support, a cry out for a productive movement to uplift our youth and set a course of action to bridge together the pillars of our redemption as a dysfunctional people.
Poverty is complex struggle to tackle, considering the dynamics of what a welfare system is: To simply provide the minimum income needed to survive in a community structured for the disadvantaged, dysfunctional non working class.
Please note: this is my personal observation of these circumstances. These leading non working individuals represent the uneducated population and single mothers that are often young children themselves.
• And these fathers represent the youth as well. For the young adult male who once had his opportunity through means of a scholarship that supported his well developed athletic abilities. All this came to a halt when his mother used the government funding provided to maintain livelihood and schooling to support a substance abuse habit.
• For the fathers who labored hard to provide security and a steady income on minimum wage and resorted to criminal conduct to make means with overdue bills.
• And yet the girlfriend who was his only hope of a more productive cause stated, “ I’m pregnant with your child.”
These barriers suffocate the youth in Wisconsin communities. It Is safe to sate that the majority of prison facilities in the state of Wisconsin house more males and females that come from these dysfunctional areas. These areas seem to be segregated to those families that receive government assistance., which are written off as a liability on the eyes of a more nurturing society.
IN time itself as the youth age, they too can only see adversity in the unfolding events taking form in their communities. Reflecting a cycle that all have lived and experience all too well. Without proper guidance these teens often develop self –destructive concepts of what success is. These teens , male and female alike, result in anti social behaviors creating situational dispositions that leads to dis-advantage in the work force and academic institutions, leaving one without purpose and carrying the ills of crime. Prostitution, armed robbery and deliverance of drug substances, all provide an income to reach a status of comfort.
Yet , this comfort level is a misconception of living and there is turmoil that clings to one’s soul , resulting to even deeper aspects these communities face-such as high risk of violence and substance abuse.
But the exception to this struggle is the ghetto hero, that all longing voice, the presence that is felt out of a common pain,love, and story. This seed has grown and faced adversity in it’s complete essence. This one of whom I speak is transcending in all forms of human development. Fortunate enough to endure the struggle by means of suppressing and modifying these stressors. This person is me and I am this because I lacked the means and understanding long before conceived to an unjust society.
I have lived and continue to experience the very existing factor. I am able , due to the accumulation of knowledge and understanding, to speak for us as a whole.
A hero stands in the light to offer hope for the people> without the strife and tears there is no story for the hero to live. I am a ghetto hero and all who reflect a struggle can very well become a hero as well…
Works form a friend to the people: “ As long as you remember that you hold the key to your success, your heart and your sanity, no one can really lock you up-they can only lock you out!”

RecidivismA combination of Components
In Reducing Increase
By Herbert M. Burrows

"Individual rates of re-offending after incarceration are high. Based on available re¬search, nearly two-thirds of all released prisoners are expected to be rearrested within three years. The impact of recidivism by returning prisoners is disproportionately felt among a relatively small number of disadvantaged communities." June 2001, From Prison to Home, the Dimensions and Consequences of Prisoner Reentry, by Jeremy Travis, Amy L. Solomon, and Michelle Waul.
Allow me this opportunity to travel through a combination of cycles that, at best, provide the insight to grasp the cause for reducing recidivism.
As an individual, it's an obligation to find some means of importance in society. Relevance is a significant feature to one's cause and place in life. A man needs relevance to establish a balanced focal point in his daily routine to outweigh the imperfection of man - the age-old concept of the ruling man; if one isn't in power or in control of his overall life - like education, career, home status, emotions, etc. - he is deemed less than what his birthright implies. And I must inform you that this is not true.
Equally important, education promotes a productive livelihood and creates a structured foundation for a career setting. Therefore, purpose and meaning are huge elements to the development process in attaining goals.
Nevertheless, as men we must encourage other areas of concentration, in particular faith groups and genuine relationships without pretense between the human specimens of men and women.
When friendship arises, one establishes trust, loyalty, and respect to an appropriate degree; in-turn, this creates traits for respectable social interpersonal skills. For men, one develops the quality of the kindred spirit; in this essence, a man reveals his true form, share's himself and his soul. At this form a man contains the spirit and is able to become a supporter of another human being. Not such in spiritual guidance, specifically motivation and encouragement.
Within the bounds of cause and effect, the individual as man the foreseer and motivator gives birth to an environment of harmony between the relationships. And harmony is attainable in a community.
Furthermore, it's essential that one must find common ground with self and cooper¬ate with probation official and parole agent, such as being willing to seek appropriate job placement; therefore, to establish a steady income and create a cause to make use of daily living.
In addition, it's important to detour away from any habits of substance abuse or any environments that promote drug use. I believe substance abuse is one of the leading causes to recidivism, if not the leading cause. It can be considered a key component in why a parolee absconds from custody. For example: upon consumption of alcohol or an¬other narcotic, the parolee is subjected to a dirty urinalysis. Therefore, the parolee fails to report not only to the agent, but also the work site. And so, out of fear of being arrested for the warrant issued by the agent, the parolee terminates the conditions of work placement. As a result, the subject is without a source of steady, legitimate income and is wanted by law enforcement for absconding. This leads the subject back to the familiar cycle of crime to attain a means of income to support the habit of drugs and day to day survival, which lies in the conduct of crime.
My belief is that the majority of returning inmates who find their way back to the chains of incarceration are due to relations of drug use. On (the) condition (that) a lack in productive decision-making while intoxicated, an individual is more likely to detour in criminal conduct, in the case of armed-robbery, burglary, etc. Henceforth, in the long run one falls back into the mind frame of criminality.
All things considered, you should always comply with the conditions of your medication use if need be, your judgment of conviction, and parole agent plan. Whereas, to abstain from drugs, weapons, etc. into the community which this may be.
In essence, my message is to advise that the individual abstain from the use of a con¬trolled substance or any conduct that lies in criminal activity. Together with, promote a healthy relationship with the probation official or parole agent; additionally, encourage the importance of education. Keep in mind you can never exhaust your growth of development.
Continue at all costs to pursue understanding in life. Moreover, establish means of some form of a family outreach support system such as friend/friends or kinship for reasons of mental and emotional understanding through quality time; more so, to experience the incentive of being loved and cared for. In large part, these are significant components in the social balance of segments in society.
Remember believe in yourself as a man... .... Take care!

By Rudyard Kipling
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same:
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, bro¬ken, And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, And lose,
and start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you, If all men count with you. but none too much:
If you can fill the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it, And—which is more—you'll be a Man, my son!

Mr. Kipling values calmheadedness, honesty, humility, a realistic nature, determination, and a sense of purpose. With these words, I close for now... Research is the key to understanding the knowledge.

Serving a life sentence since 1998
Convicted in LaCrosse County of murder, arson, burglary
Since my conviction I've studied criminal and civil rights law, filed many lawsuits, won some. My time is spent studying writing, writing(poetry, essays, stories, plays etc), trying to maintain my physical health and mental health . I do a lot of thinking, trying to figure out myself and the ways of the world.
As a life, not eligible for parole until I turn 72, and the I'll have to do another year for a bogus battery against a guard here at WSPF, I think I try harder than those with shorter sentences to make my life meaningful. Not only do I have several well cited published legal decisions, but I have had poems published in Hummingbird (a small WI magazine) Crazyhorse,(College of Charleston lit' mag)and on various websites. I ttry to use the life I have to make the world I am part of , even the prison world, a better place. Sometimes it seems like an impossible struggle, because so many seem intent on make the world bitter , miserable, had unforgiving, probably because that's how the people making it this way feel themselves.
I would enjoy hearing from anyone I knew before I came to prison, even if you feel we didn't know each other well. There's a lot of mistakes I made, I now realize, Which I'd like to remedy, as much as possible. Best wishes to those reading this. Don't any of you be stuck with your flawed masks or ignorant pasts. Contact me if you share any of my interests, or want to help.

I would gladly break your heart
But, there are these bars
Yet, if love from me
You really want:
Babe, we'll find a way to make them part.

Title : Seeking Soulmate
Vitals: 5'11",215 lbs
Brown eyes
DOB: 11-7-79

Hello Ladies, My name is Glenford Willis. I'm a 31 year old incomplete black male how's seeking comfort and companionship from a strong, open-minded , loving woman, who's willing to receive and give affection in return. I've never been married and have no children, but I do adore them. I'm a loving, caring , intelligent. Honest , open-minded individual who's dedicated to what I believe in and also making the most of any situation. I've been incarcerated five years and seven months with ten years and five months ahead of me, and to be completely honest , this has been a lonely experience with no one to confide in. I was raised by a single parent and as a child my mother taught me that all men are supposed to stand strong and firm regardless of the situation. I have did so threw out the years of my life, but I have come to realize that I can only stand alone for so long. Fortunately , I have a loving caring family that supports me unconditionally but, as you can imagine, my family can only do so much as helping me find the woman if my life. I'm sure you are wondering why I am incarcerated. Well.. it would take too long to explain in my profile, but whenever you respond to my ad, I'm more than willing to explain my conviction and answer any and all questions you may have. Well I've given you some insight on who I am. I truly hope this has caught someone's attention and you are willing to know more. Take care, and God bless you all.
Sincerely, Glen

Since you took time to stop and check my profile out,I want to start things off by saying:as you read this message, I want you to bear with me cause at this point in time I am kind of lost for words. Being that this way of meeting someone is new to me, and on top of that it has me nervous as well. By you being on this site lets me know that you're also looking for a casual friend to build a bond with. Plus that you are mature enough not to let my small situation of being locked up stop us from corresponding with each other. I just hope your judgment don't get clouded and that you keep an open mind with things since people who are locked up get looked at with a negative eye. Well, you got my information so I hope to hear from you in the very near future.

With the passing of my brother last year, I find myself alone in the world. So I am reaching out for friendship, hoping to find an understanding person to correspond with. I am a middle aged man hoping to correspond with anyone who's willing to write. I am 177 lbs, 6' tall, considerate, loving and caring man. I'm originally from Jacksonville, Florida, however I was mostly raised in Milwaukee. I do not have kids... I love them, just never been blessed with them. I'm in prison for taking money that didn't belong to me. I have corrected my error, my only problem now is loneliness.

I'm not a person that's into looks, life has taught me to look upon the heart. Now knowing that's where real beauty comes from! I like to have fun, by way of correspondence through the mail, to talk about anything... life in general. I've come to the understanding that loneliness is such a bad state to be in. My loneliness compels me to search out friendship, someone I can talk to, who I can share with, all for the sake of friendship. We've all made our share of mistakes in life. Having someone to talk to is very important to me!!

In closing, it is my hope that I hear from you so I can properly introduce myself.

Note:With Eric and a few other prisoners here, we are presenting a fuller story than the little introductory blurb we usually provide. All prisoners on our blogs and website ( want and need people to write on the "outside". This man is mentally ill and in seg, yet easy to write and always considerate. If you choose to write him or another prisoner and want to use our forwarding service , please email .

ON 5-31-86 in LaCrosse CO. I witnessed my birth father kill my birth mother and then he comitted suicide. This all took place when I was only 3 years old. After the death of both my birth parents , I lived with my 1st cousin and her husband. On 6-02-88 I was adopted by my 1st cousin. I lived with them in Prairie du Chien( Crawford County).
During my life with them , I was subjected to both physical and verbal abuse by my step dad , I was even subjected to physical and verbal abuse by my peers. While in school, I was labeled "special ed" for slow learning problems. I had lot of negative behaviors during my school years. I did graduate high school in 2001.
I have had alot of behavior dysfunctions all my life. I have made some improvements here and there, but I still have my struggles now, since I have been an adult. I have had several situations where I self harmed Myself. A few required serious medical treatment.
I have been in prison since 2005, in which most of it has been in segregation status. For I seem not to adjust to prison life. I do alot on impulse alot.
Since being incarcerated I have had a lot of placements in observation status as well as bed-restraint placement. All dues to my mental health illnesses.
Now I have also basically had everybody give up on me. So I have been left to struggle alot. For I have no financial help with which I can get hygiene or anything else I need. I don't really receive mail that much. I mainly only get legal mail or catalogs I send out for. I barely get letters or money orders or cards.
So I just manage the best I can with my situation. My mental health and basic medical needs has gotten worse over the years.

My name is James Findley and I am a prisoner here in London –Ohio. I’m doing “life” for the crime of murder- and I’ve been “in “ since Oct 1970- 40 years and I doubt that I will ever be released- I see the parole board again in October 2013.

About a Bio- I really don’t know what to say other than I’ve always tried to be myself and treat people as I want to be treated-my first two years I spent on “death row”- got to within 22 hours of the electric chair before the “stay “ came from the governor back in 1971- so you can say I’ve been to “hell” and back. Until a couple months ago I was in the “dog program” –we’ve at London, as a dog trainer/handler. Then I got a chance to get into a cell and out of the dorm-so I changed jobs- I now work on the yard crew.

By the way, I’m 5’91/2” tall. 180 lbs-gray/blond hair with blue eyes. My hair is below my shoulders now and my beard is full. I’m a scorpio-October 23rd. on the cusp. I will answer all who write me!!

Marvin Beauchamp

Marvin L. Beauchamp, G.B.C.I.
P.O. Box 19033
Green Bay, WI 54307

Greetings, my name is Marvin L. Beauchamp, my friends call me Bo. As you can probably gather I am incarcerated but I am searching for someone to communicate with, a very understanding member of God's greatest gift to man, a woman. A woman with a sense of humor that can bring out the sunshine on a cloudy day. A woman with whom I can share my memories, wishes, dreams and desires with. A woman who possesses beauty both inside and out.

If you believe that you fit this brief description, then let's give it a try. Know that you will be beginning a friendship with a black straight male, 6 ft., 190 lb, humorous, healthy, family oriented, intelligent, positive, outspoken, barber, who's 34 yrs old.

I am currently housed at the Green Bay Correctional Institution, PO Box 19033, Green Bay, WI 54307, #250335.

Crime incarcerated for: homicide

Marvin's story:
I am writing to you to share my story with the uninformed and those who are willing to listen. My name is Marvin Louis Beauchamp and I have been wrongly convicted. I know what you are thinking. You " hear that " all of the time. A11 I can do is tell the truth and give you some of the pieces and let you come up with your own conclusion. The #1 thing to remember is there is NOT ONE piece of physical evidence that links me to the crime. All evidence against me is circumstantial. There are 5 eye witnesses the saw the shooting from start to finish, who did not identify me as the shooter...
....... It was a sunny morning on June 16th 2006. I took my
girlfriend to a court date that she had at the Milwaukee county court house, afterwards, I drove her to her aunt's house where I dropped her off. I proceeded to work. At the time I was working as a independent contractor, painting, and refurbishing homes. I was told by my girlfriend to return to pick her up At 12:30pm to return her to the courthouse at 1:00pm. I called her cellphone several times and received no answer. I called a few more times and still got no answer, so I went back to painting, figuring that she had found another way to her appointment. Later that evening I was informed that I was being sought in a shooting that took place at my girlfriend's aunt's house. I eventually turned my self in to sort this out and proclaim my innocence. I was being charged with a homicide! Preliminary hearing comes around and the only two state witnesses that were supposed to testify against me were my girlfriend and her cousin. Both of them made numerous statements, all of which were the truth because they did not involve me at all, but there was a final statement that implicated me in the shooting. WHAT?! CAN'T BE! I WASN'T EVEN PRESENT! They were called to the witness stand, cousin first. Her statement, the one that implicated me was the only one read in court, not the other three that had nothing to do with me. After it was read she leaned toward the mic and said "all of that is a lie" because the police at interrogated her forced her to say these things. She testified under oath that she DID NOT witness me do anything to anyone. As a matter of fact she did not see me that day period! Next my girlfriend took the witness stand and guess what she said? Yep, the exact same thing, that she was coerced into making statements that implicated me, after being arrested and held for a day and a half. Simple right? Case dismissed due to lack of evidence, rihgt? Wrong! I was bound over for trial....
....... Trial comes and the story gets even more confusing.
My girlfriend's cousin's, boyfriend was the person that unfortunately ended up shot in the front yard of the house that I dropped my girlfriend off at. Supposedly he was shot numerous times and stumbbled into the street where he collapsed. A nurse that just happened to be driving by, pulled over and administered CPR on the victim and allegedly revived him. This nurse that brought the victim back to life, was not present at my the trial and nor was she invited. The second person to arrive on the scene, who also was just in the neighborhood, was a lieutenant. She called for back up and about ten minutes after the shooting a crime scene has been formed, all while the victim lay in the street. She, the lieutenant, also didn't show up to the trial, nor was she invited. Reports show that the victim suffered 5 gunshot wounds. One gunshot hit and damaged 80% of his Aorta Vena Cava- for those who don't know that's the main and largest blood vessel attached to the heart. One bullet penetrated his kidneys, also causing rapid blood loss. Another hit his spine, liver, and one was a flesh wound. These are pretty grave injuries for the condition they say he was in all the way to the hospital. By now the EMT's have arrived. One of the firefighters on the scene was a friend of the victim. He asked who did this to you, at which time the victim supposedly replied "MARVIN!". Yeah, you read that correctly, my name is Marvin, which no one calls me and this also was testified to. My nickname is BO. Think of all of his injuries and the blood being lost while I tell who else has the first name Marvin. The firefighter friend just happens to have the first name Marvin. Remember those 5 gunshot wounds? I've done research and it is not humanly possible for a person to display " cognitive functioning " with that type of internal blood loss. But this is what his friend the firefighter named Marvin testified to. A Milwaukee police Officer testified that he rode to the hospital in the ambulance with the victim and the victim told him the same thing, that Marvin shot him, at which time he allegedly gave a brief description of a person that me and half of Milwaukee could fit. Remember those five gunshot wounds? The severe damage that they have done is still present and worsening by the second. By now 25 to 30 minutes have passed with nothing to stop the internal bleeding. The officer that testified to this says he rode in the ambulance with the victim but a police report records his partner as the one who actually rode to the hospital. Once again someone else didn't show up to the trial. When we sought out the officer that was recorded as the officer that actually rode to the hospital, he had resigned, retired, just plain disappeared. The next witness was a guy that I barely knew that said I confessed to him in the county jail while I awaited trial. Of course he said these things in return for consideration on his own pending charges, which he got a was released for his testimony and promptly murdered someone, he's in prison as we speak. When he was asked when did he hear of the shooting, he replied "in May"? That's right, it happened in June, so how was that possible? My girlfriend and her cousin testified for the second time and again said the exact same thing that they said in preliminary hearing. They were coerced into the statements against me. Forced, threatened, and tricked were their exact words. Again they said on record, under oath, that they didn't witness me do anything to anyone. An eye witness testified with me sitting directly in front of him did not point me out as the shooter......
.......That was it, that simple. I'm sure that T don't have
to tell you what the outcome was, but just for verification because it's already confusing enough, GUILTY!I!
I'm sure you're wondering where my attorney was during all of this? She was there and no she wasn't a public defender. She was from one of, if not, the most prestigious law firms in Milwaukee. She was representing the police officers that were accused and found not guilty of beating Frank Jude Jr, even though they had overwhelming evidence against them, at the
same time she was, representing me,a person with, circumstantial evidence against him. You can see Why? Her iob was done I She helped the state get a conviction and in return she got a acquittal for someone obviously guilty, so much so/they were found guilty in Federal court. Ever heard of case swapping? I have......
I am currently fighting my case in the appeal stage. I am blessed with a multitude of friends, family, and a team of attorneys that believe in me and my innocence, who continue to fight for my freedom. I just felt that I had to share my story and hopefully open the eyes of those who are unaware of the injustice that is taking place right under their noses.....
....... Of course my story is heavily summarized and all details left out will further show doubt and Drove my innocence. One day it will be proven.....
......My case was recently argued before the WI Supreme Court
and their reason for denying my request for a new trial was simple. Necessity. It was/is necessary to keep the evidence that we argued, against because if they ruled in our favor the state would have no case because there is no ballistic evidence and I would be acquitted. They wouldn't want to take any chances and release a guilty man, but they have no problem keeping a INNOCENT man behind bars........
.......Can you honestly call that justice??

Devin Brown

Devin Lee Brown #471237 GBCI; PO Box 19033 Green Bay, Wi 54307-9033 Title “Mistaken Identity” Devin Brown gets 35 years to life for mistaken identity. Could you or someone you love be the next victim of Mistaken identity? Eye witness says to police that “someone “ just walked past and started shooting and she didn’t recognize him, but after being told by someone else Brown could be involved she thinks she knows Brown from going to his house. However , when picking him out of a photo array says only time she ever saw him was on night of the shooting. Then at trial she points to different person and says she knows me from a party. I was illegally arrested on August 03 and lost trial Oct 04. I felt compelled to sign a statement after I was confronted by a signed statement by my big brother implicating me as the one that killed someone. After I denied it several times through several intense interrogations and being denied a lawyer, it overwhelmed me and became too much for me to bear for someone never in a situation like that ever before. My brother’s statement wasn’ t used at my trial , however , they used my statement and a faulty eye witness who gave several different contradictory statements and pointed to someone else during my trial in a photo lineup. In July of 04 an-out -of -court statement from a former friend of mine said I told him I shot the victim (so he could get released only later to catch another case in involving a toddler being killed) however at trial he plead the 5th and refused to take an oath to verify his statements but was compelled to testify, but I still couldn’t questions him because every question was “I don’t know,” “I don’t recall” or “I don’t remember”. A jury used no physical evidence to convict me. Now I am in the court of appeals again because the courts keep giving me the run around hitting me with technical errors because I am pro se. My appeal process is similar to the Emmanuel Page VS Matthew Frank case 43 F:3c 901 WI 2003, where they are not ruling on my issues. The circuit court sends me to the appeals court saying it’s their issues, then the appeals courts says it’s the state, then the state sends me back. The whole time the appeals court didn’t rule on my claims. This is where my problem is. I believe I have grounds for a successful appeal for those reasons also, my trial court judge is on record saying he sees a discrepancy with the detective’s version of events on how they entered my mother’s house. This was one of the most important motions I had but they chose to side with the police against my witness (my mother/ Niece) on a reason that doesn’t have anything to do with how the police gained entry into the house without an arrest warrant after ample time . I’m the victim of mistaken identity and over bearing police , misconduct, taking advantage of people who haven’t been I this type of situation and the judges are holding me to a higher standard than the people who take an oath to serve and protect. If you could help me in any way, it would be greatly appreciated. If not, please direct me to someone who can.

My name is Marion Brisco.I was born on February 23rd,1984. 1 ' m about 5'3 in height and about 174 pounds in weight. I grew up with both of my parents,2 brothers,and 2 sisters. My childhood was bad to say the least. My parents struggled with finding work,which meant lots of financial troubles. Living in poverty caused going to school to be difficult as well. My parents not being able to afford nice things cause me to be the object of ridicule and mockery. As a result of this I got into fights everyday. When I got home I was punished for fighting in school. I couldn't tell my parents that I was fighting because I was being poked fun at at school.
Once I got a little older I wanted to change not only my state of living but also my family's. So,I took to doing what everyone else in my neighborhood was doing. I started doing crime,specifically selling drugs.It was easy and the money came fast. I did what I believed I had to do. I divided the money I made between myself and my parents. Because of what I was doing my parents were able to pay rent, all of the bills,and purchase better things for my sisters and brothers so that they didn't go through what I did in school. To be honest,back then I thought that the lifestyle was great. I was respected in the streets as a hustler and I was loved in more at home as a provider.I even fell in love with a beautiful lady.
As with all stories about a man coming to prison,the life that I thought was so great began to crumble.The woman that I loved betrayed my trust and involved me in a crime that I had nothing to do with. In the aftermath of it,I ended up with I5 years in prison and strong trust issues. She began a relationship with one of my friends and my family was plunged back into poverty.
As of now,I have been in prison a little over a year and I have decided to once again change my state of living but this time in a positive and productive way.I am working on getting my HSED as well as preparing to take some correspondence college courses. I have also begun to form a relationship with God. Most importantly, I have begun to work on the psychological scars that I have from my parents and the betrayal from my so-called friends.I've realized that I can't really change my future without educating myself and finding internal peace.And in a way,me posting this is part of that process.I have not opened up to anyone about my past since I was betrayed my the woman I fell in love with.
It would be difficult for me to say what I am specifically looking for but I know that Whoever response to this has to be at least open-minded (seeing that they would have to be in order to view me as the individual I am and not as the crime I'm incarcerated for), someone who is understanding(seeing that they would have to be in order to deal with my faults),and someone who is compassionate(seeing that they would have to be in order to help me help myself become a better human being)! I encourage all who wish to, to respond.I will try my very best to respond to all letters that I receive.Thank you for your time and reading my story.

Poem Called Father

Too young to remember
A few pictures take his place.
She's my baby girl. We resemble
He's gone without a trace. Without her affection,
Void because of infection;
A life of insurrection
Now what is this I face?
A stream of bad decisions,
Don't hate the player, hate the game.
Conquered by drug saleing
So much promise turned to shame.
Mercy m! Sin arrested..
My Baby girl's love uncontested!
Satan's plan has been bested
Could this be the case?
In Daddy's arms she can rest now,
Neither weed not death gives chase.
I'm at home, free at last now
And protected by his grace.
