Inhumane Conditions Reported
James Williams 248-087,
had surgery on his eyes last year, and recently went blind in February.
Now he is held in the infirmary away from the general population, and sources
say that his cell is a mess with garbage everywhere, his clothes are grimy,
and the place has an awful stench.

After many phone calls from
myself and her family members, the PB held an executive metting and voted
to continue Kim's parole. It appears that someone tried to use her web
site here as a valid reason to keep her in prison longer. However, free
speech is still legal here.

Revoked by Victim Services Day Before Release
Alleged ďNew InformationĒ
stops Kim Southall's release
ORW: An Interoffice Communication
from Susan Crowder (Records Office) on 9/29/03 clearly states:
"A Parole Certificate has
been received for you. You will be leaving on 10/27/03."
Miss Janet Wiley (Records
Office) received info from the DRC Central Office Friday, the 24th, around
16:30 that Kimís Parole had been stopped.
Wiley called for Miss Ginine
Trimm, (Unit Manager) and left no message, Miss Barnhill (case manager)
had answered the phone.
While leaving work on Friday,
Wiley saw Jannette Stewart (Institutional Inspector) and told her that
Kimís parole was stopped, and she should let her know.
Stewart contacted Barnhill
from home on Saturday around 13:30 to let Kim know.
By this time, Kimís mother,
Lois Frick, had already begun driving from Florida, and could not be notified.
Lois has taken several days off of work to come to Ohio to see her daughter
released from prison, after ten years.
After ten years, there hasn't
been any more new information about this case. What are the odds that someone
filed a petition with Victim Services (DRC), and they notified Central
Office, who processed this information just in time to contact the ORW
facility by late Friday afternoon, the last business day before her release?
Are we supposed to believe that this is just a coincidence?

Assaults Mr. Norris
Robert Norris sustained
injuries after being assaulted by another inmate using a belt to his face.
He was later transferred to a medical clinic for treatment. It seems as
though MCI cannot provide a safe environment for inmates, as they claim.
Change of Address:
Mr. Norris was relocated to Marion Correctional Institution (MCI), P.O.
Box 57. This was an unrequested administrative transfer.
The records office at NCCI
has known for a long time that Norris does not have a valid sentence. When
asked for the true cause of his detention, they always refer to a "1998
nunc pro tunc Resentencing Order". There is no record of this on the Appearance
Docket from the court. This week, a certified copy of the court's Journal
on that office. NCCI continues to hold Norris as a hostage with no
excuse for doing so.

at NCCI: Norris's Legal Research Destroyed
"They confiscated and destroyed
all of my NEW forensic materials gathered over the past 30-45 days for
my federal habeas corpus action...they took my white-out, 'abandoned all
of my law books where they would be stolen', and aside from all this, I
am repeatedly being given conduct reports for 'this and that'...they even
took my paper clips."
Norris has filed complaints
and grievances with the Institution:

All three men spent the
day in seg, in violation of Ohio law.
February 7, 2001
I received a call back from
the Warden's Office. Now she says that she was mistaken. Actually,
the memo says that they should follow the illegal sentencing orders from
the trial court judge. I warned them not to, because it would be
unconstitutional, double jeopardy, and a violation of civil rights.
February 6, 2001
I called the Warden's Office
at RCI to ask them not to put Eugene Johnson, Derrick Wheatt and Laurese
Glover in segregation on February 10th. (See their web site for details)
The secretary told me not to worry, that they had a memo from the DRC that
they were not supposed to follow such sentencing orders.

Today Channel 19 News came
over to interview me about the web site and the station aired the story
at 6:00, 10:00 and 11:00. Reporter Ed Gallek asked Cuyahoga County Prosecutor
William Mason what he thought about it too! See
August 11, 2000
Today Mr. Norris was given
the news that he will not be transferred from NCCI, and he will be taken
off of the Mental Health Caseload list. It's true, that together
we can make a difference.
July 22, 2000
NCCI plans to move Mr. Norris
to another institution, MCI, because they need more mental health patients
at MCI to maintain staff employment. They may think that this is
an opportunity to get rid of him. However, he is not a mental health
patient, and is not on any medication for mental illness. He is not
a threat to security, and he is not violent. The DRC simply doesn't
want to comply with the state laws. Rather than deal with the objection
of civil rights violations, they want to remove him from the institution
under the guise of mental health.

Mr. Norris was released
from segregation (the hole) today without explanation. In fact, he
was never written up for conduct in the first place.

After Mr. Gaddis filed his
brief in the 8th District Appellate Court, the prosecution had
until June 30th to respond. According to the Clerk of
the Appellate Court, the prosecution made no response, and no argument
or disagreement with Mr. Gaddis' brief. That's Great news!

Inmate with NO SENTENCE ON HUNGER STRIKE at NCCI
Today Mr. Norris was escorted
out of the cell block in handcuffs and sent to solitary confinement, (the
hole) after demanding his release this week. He revealed the documents
concerning his sentencing to prison authorities a week ago, and has had
several meetings with them since. Although they agree that he is
correct, and has no legal sentence, they refuse to release him, in a clear
violation of his civil rights.
Any prisoner who touches
the fence will be shot. Mr. Norris has threatened them that he will
hit the fence if they do not release him. The authorities would be
guilty of conspiracy to attempted murder since they knew that he was a
hostage without a legal sentence, and agreed that he should not be there!
However, he has given them no options, they must release him or be guilty
of violating his constitutional rights, and murder.
He has declared a hunger
strike as long as he is in solitary confinement, so that if he would die,
they would be guilty of killing an innocent man. Mr. Norris said
that he will refuse liquids after one week.
Prison officials who refused
to speak with Mr. Norris about the matter, admit off the record that there
are some apparent problems with the sentence. However, they insist
that even if the sentencing entry is void an unenforceable, the inmate
has no right to complain or to demand to the State of Ohio to protect his
civil and constitutional rights. Prison officials say that itís not
They argue that the entry
is valid until a court says otherwise, but the law says that it was void
from its inception. The bottom line here is that it has nothing to do with
the courts or filling motions, rather, if the entry is void as a matter
of law (from its inception) the Executive Branch authority has not been
Although Mr. Norris was given
a 3 month supply of his twice-daily pain medication and eye drops last
month, now, all medications have been discontinued. All this is the
result of his demands to be released from the control and custody of the
executive branch, because he was incarcerated without due process of law.

The Office of the Prosecutor
of Lucas County was asked to investigate the matter of the affidavits that
Ms. Golebiewski has. John J. Weglian, Chief of the Special Units
Division, responded by saying "It would appear that
someone should file a Motion for a New Trial on behalf of Ms. Golebiewski."
This is great news!

Ms. Southall has filed for
her writ of habeas corpus in the United States District Court. I
wonder if they will take the time to notice the truth. The warden,
Deborah Cooper, certainly did not.
June 2, 2000
Mr. Gaddis received the
copy of the filed brief, and it indicates that the evidence was never given
to the prosecutor in the first place, and that the prosecution had no evidence
to convict Mr. Gaddis at all. We expect this case to be overturned.

Assault at NCCI
17:30 All inmates
in the block were ordered into the chow hall while the bunks get shaken
down because of an alleged silent alarm.
18:50 Mr. Norris is
patted down last, by corrections officer Alexander, and sent to the other
side of the room to sit with the others.
After most of the others
were gone, but not yet allowed back into the block C.O. Bradley tells Mr.
Norris that he wasn't patted down, does it again, then holds onto his shirt
pocket while hitting him in the chest, jerking him back and forth and causing
his legs to slam into a fixed chair. Lt. King and C.O. Bradley were laughing
with C.O. Alexander while he was beating Mr. Norris.
This caused a disk in Norris'
back to slip, causing intense pain all the way down his leg, and immobility.
Norris told them that it was unauthorized use of force, and they told him
to go ahead and file a complaint, and they would throw him in the hole.
(solitary suspension without privileges)
Then they ordered him to
leave the chow hall and go outside. Others helped him and laid him
on a bench, outside, where he stayed for about 45 minutes. When Captain
Springer came by, Norris told her what had happened and asked to go to
the infirmary for treatment. He was treated and released.
Later in Captain Springer's
office, they told Norris to file a statement, and C.O. Alexander denied
patting him down. Norris refused the filing of a complaint, since
it would only serve their goal of further confinement, and placed a call
to the State Highway Patrol.
20:35 Norris filed
a complaint of the incident with Trooper Vinson at the State Highway Patrol.
Charges will be filed with the FBI.

innocent citizens and beats them.

As you know, we've had no
complaint with the Ohio DRC (Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections)
except the obvious, that they don't rehabilitate or bring correction, and
waste taxpayers money on inmates who have committed no crime. However,
this week they have denied Ms. Southall of receiving her mail, and did
a shakedown on Mr. Neal, (stole his personal property)
all without reason, merit, or injunction. The State of Ohio reserves
certain rights to those who are incarcerated, and the DRC has (possibly
under order) violated those civil rights on several counts. They
want to flex some muscle.
These inmates are model citizens,
and have not been so much as written up on an infraction, yet they are
Our complaint has always
been with the county prosecutors, judges, and crime labs which conspired
to convict innocent citizens, like yourself, of crimes they did not commit.
As we know, they all drink from the same dish, and conspire together to
protect their unlawful deeds, so they try to put pressure on those in custody
by harassment and restrictions. We suppose that such authorities
are not fond of the truths presented on this web site, and as new information
is presented, they persecute the inmates in hope that we will settle for
injustice, and back down in our fight for truth and justice. Of course,
they are mistaken. In fact, any harm that comes
to them will be loudly broadcast to the world through this site.
