Has anybody ever written to somebody in prison they didn't know in person?
I have written a letter to someone who I feel is not innocent in general but is innocent of what they have been sentenced for, furthermore when the crime was committed they were young yet tried as an adult which was controversial at the time.
On top of that when this person was first interviewed they had no lawyer and as they were young it would have been easier for the detectives to get this person to say certain things.
Lastly they had a very troubled and turbulent life from day 1, all of these things seem to have bee ignored and so I feel they have been dealt a great injustice. I think writing to this person will at least give them some level of contentment as life must be pretty hellish and mundane to say the least. The prison system also does not do much to help rehabilitate criminals, it merely locks them away from society, especially considering the age at when this person was tried I feel they should have been room for rehabilitation and reform.
I am a bit cautious of leaving a return address though, this is my only hang up. I do not know if I like the idea of my address floating around a prison system even if I do move around myself a lot.
