Tony Harrison has been in prison since 1997, for a crime we believe he did not commit. Opus 30 Justice has been advocating on Tony's behalf since January of 2020.
Recently Tony has been harassed by several of the CO's (Correctional Officers) on his block. He has been moved four times, ultimately to a very undesirable cell right next to the showers. The bright lights from the showers as well as the constant activity and noise going on in the showers has been very stressful for Tony, making it impossible for him to sleep or concentrate. He has requested to be moved, to no avail. The CO's are trying to provoke a response from Tony, so that they can send him to solitary confinement or "write him up".
In addition to this, Tony has been denied a job, despite his being fully qualified to work in the Law Library (Tony earned a certificate in paralegal work) or the kitchen (he also earned a certificate in Food Preparation). He wants to work and be productive, but is being denied.
A letter to Superintendent Michael Capra on Tony's behalf would be very useful, and appreciated. I have written to Capra several times and will continue to do so until Tony's situation is resolved.
WHAT SHOULD I WRITE?
If you are willing to write a letter to Superintendent Capra, just keep it simple and direct.
Be sure to reference Tony's ID # (97A1299)
Dear Superintendent Capra,
I am writing in support of Mr. Tony Harrison (DIN 97A1299). Mr. Harrison has been repeatedly harassed by several CO's, and is also living in a cell directly near the showers, which is a source of tremendous stress for him. In addition, Mr. Harrison's attempts to be placed in a job in the Law Library or with Food Services have all been denied, without clear justification.
Your attention to this matter is greatly appreciated.
Here is the mailing address:
Mr. Michael Capra, Superintendent
Sing Sing Correctional Facility
354 Hunter Street
Ossining, NY 10562
On Tony's behalf, I thank you.
