Dear Friends,

Shane Watson's motion hearing is this Monday, July 15, 2013. This is a huge step forward in our work.

I want to gather as much publicity for Shane's case as possible, in order to not only share his story, but to raise much needed funds for his legal expenses.

WBAI-FM in New York City has a unique connection to The Opus 30 Mission. I happened to be listening to the late Al Lewis's Saturday morning program back in 2003, and at the suggestion of Mr. Lewis, sent a postcard to WBAI with my name and address in order to correspond with someone in prison. A few weeks later I received Shane's name and mailing address at Green Haven, and here we are.

Please email and/or call WBAI and suggest that they cover Shane's story.

Berthold Reimers, Station General Manager (347) 903-2986
Kathy Davis, Public Affairs Director (347) 515-6586

Khalil Cumberbatch, Communications Manager for On The Count: The Criminal Justice Report 

Thank you.
