‘I can’t seem to get out of jail’


This minimum custody, nonviolent inmate's sentence min. was up on August 9th. He hasn't received a disciplinary report since January 8th. Why is he still being detained? It's time to revoke the DOC's responsibility of approving housing!

I’m a minum custody nonviolet inmate. I’m being held for lack of residence. I was aproved for Sanctuary House but my co-defendent is currently there and put a conflict on me, so now I can’t go there. So I put a application in for the HPC [Homeless Protection Center] to the Housing Coalition. I been there in the past about 2 1/2 years ago but they denied me cause they think I’m not ready, what ever that means[.] I have a facilty job, no DRs [disciplinary reports] since January 8 [.] I have no listed offenses[.] I can’t seem to get out of jail [.] I don’t know what or who can help me I hope this is a start. Thank you for your time. Hope to hear from you soon.
