Motion for judicial release sign now

In February 2002, the man who is now my husband moved a new roommate into his apartment to help pay the rent. The woman in question has a bad reputation so we were not in agreement about this. At the time we were suffering a trial separation so emotions were running high, but my husband genuinely believed that the woman should be given a second chance and he would not base his opinion of her on hearsay. I was in disagreement with his opinion because I had personal experience of the womans bad character.

Two months later, we reconciled and I moved into the apartment as well. The woman was not happy about this, and determined to separate us in any way possible as by now she had designs on him. As her measures failed to work, she became vicious in her attitude. In May 2002, after yet another confrontation, she accused Jim of assaulting her. The charges were never pursued in court as she had no visible injuries, but while in jail, injuries were found on Jim - caused by the woman. A bruise in the form of a handprint in the centre of his chest, and his centre rib cage was found to have a small fracture where hed been hit so hard. No charges were ever raised against her by the police. After this, the woman was told to leave and we had a Protection Order issued against her. We were hopeful that wed now be allowed to lead our lives in peace.

In June 2002, a week before the protection Order was finalized, she began a hate campaign against us. We were bombarded with threatening emails from her, threatening physical damage and death to both us, and Jims son. Jim was attacked by six men outside our apartment, and so badly injured that at one stage, we thought he may not live. We firmly believe this was at her instigation because of the contents of several emails received from her at the time. The taunts and emails continued to arrive on a regular basis life was a misery for us both. We had charges raised against her on five occasions, but she was acquitted on every charge.

In September 2003, after sixteen months of being taunted, abused, threatened by email and physically assaulted the police arrived to arrest Jim for sending the emails to himself, a claim which we both steadfastly deny as an untruth, and fabrication on this womans part. Finally, the Cincinnati police informed him that if he did not confess to this, he would be thrown in jail pending a bond hearing the earliest date being several days hence. Tired, emotionally distressed, and believing that this would all be found to be a total fabrication and waste of police time upon investigation, Jim decided to confess so he could stay at home with me, as he was worried about my well-being should I be left alone in the apartment, under these circumstances. Hed been physically assaulted and injured, and was frightened that the same thing should happen to me if I was on my own.

(The woman had knowledge of all our email addresses, thanks to a man who we believed had been a friend of Jims. Hed worked with Jim, attended school with Jim, but had also been involved in a relationship with this woman while she was conducting this hate campaign against us. The emails were found to have originated from several locations, which this man was known to frequent. Once again, the police ignored this fact.)

Jims confession was never signed by Jim. It also had a sentence added in another persons handwriting, and was not attributable to Jim in any way. This sentence stated that Jim admitted hed sent the woman an email apology for his behaviour a week prior which is an absolute lie. Jim was charged with tampering with evidence, and when the case went before a Grand Jury, two counts of perjury were added. In order to get a lesser sentence he pleaded to the perjury, and they dismissed the tampering with evidence. He received two years per charge, concurrent.

Jim has worked at making his time spent in prison beneficial. Hes been accepted in a Victim Awareness class as hed never had counselling to deal with the trauma caused by the attack on him. Hes also working in the Animal Shelter where dogs are trained for use by the disabled, and attending Bible Study and Church. Sadly, hes also had major health problems since his incarceration. His right lung collapsed which resulted in a hospital stay for two weeks, and he was also taking meds for depression. Despite this, Jim continues to work five days a week, eight hours a day, and remains out of trouble. His prison record is excellent.

Jim is the single parent of a six year old boy this is the child who was being threatened with death. His mother left several years ago, and has only just resumed contact, although shed always had visitation rights and was never denied contact. Jims mother is now fighting a custody battle to keep the boy until Jim is released. Jim is eligible to file for judicial release this coming November, 2004. Failing this, Jim will not be eligible for release until April 2006 by which time he may have lost custody and even contact, with his son. However, his lawyer is not convinced that Jim will receive a fair hearing with the Judge at present. We are desperate to have Jim home for his sake, and his sons sake.

The little boy is being deprived of his daddy, Im deprived of my much-loved husband, and hes being deprived of his freedom, his health, and us, and all because he chose to give a bad woman a second chance and she abused that trust and deigns herself a woman scorned. Please sign this petition to show my husband and the Judge that people care about his situation, his son, and the injustice of this case. He needs to be home.


Many thanks
