Statement by

A Mother's Story

These words are from a mother of a man incarcerated at Wallens Ridge State Prison: "My son has severe asthma, past seizures and Hepatitis C (which the prison has not treated him for). He has approximately 11 months left to serve. They told him he was not eligible for early release but he could appeal it. He asked for an appeal packet and they did not give it to him. I would hate for his sentence to end up a life sentence from contracting this virus."
