Joseph Allen’s Prison Mistreatment

[Note: Friends of Justice is a personal blog. I speak only for myself.]

Here is a statement from Joseph’s niece, Cassandra:

“A recent visit to Joseph Allen at Lorain Correctional Institution in Grafton, OH leaves family members concerned, worried, and hopeful that the Truth will Soon Set Him Free! Family members are wondering why a man who spent the past four years free and living a productive life AND most importantly, a man who has been wrongfully convicted, is sitting in visitation shackled at the ankles and handcuffed. Joseph told family members that he has been in isolation (the hole) since he arrived at Lorain Correctional and he was not sure why. Family members contacted the prison and spoke with someone regarding Inmate Matters but no answers were given. While family members are praying for Joseph’s safety and sanity, they remain hopeful that the Truth be exposed and Nancy and Joseph’s names finally be cleared. Family members, friends, and supporters worldwide who believe and Know these two are innocent are uniting together and prepared to fight till the end.

“Also, we need people from all over to start sending letters, postcards, correspondence with Joseph. He needs to know that we are fighting for him and we need to show the warden, parole board, and of course the governor, that he has supporters. Write as often as we can, spread the word, even if it’s a note that says I’m praying for you, I’m supporting you…Don’t give up…….an encouraging word goes a long way…especially since he has been unable to get a Bible. “

Joseph’s lawyer is aware of the situation and is doing what he can to help. He hopes to get him moved to a better facility soon.
