Inmate Mathew Hale Reg. Nu. 15177-424


Your amiable motto of “Correctional Excellence Respect and Integrity” is apparently not known in Florence. I write to you as an author and citizen about Mathew Hale who is incarcerated in Florence in what I believe to be horrific conditions. That a man accused by an FBI paid informer, without any corroborating evidence, was found guilty of an uncommitted crime is bad enough, but when a sentence of 40-years is handed down, one can only be confounded by such action.

Hale is an accomplished author, classical musician, and poet, why would such a man accused by an FBI informer be placed in solitary confinement? Why would mail that I sent him be withheld? Why would some guard return a letter with my return address on the envelope undelivered, with some document that the sender was not clearly identified? Why when that letter was sent a second time to the Warden of that facility, requesting a response, was none made and the letter obviously still not delivered. Why has the warden of the facility not responded to my letter and requests?

I know nothing about the prison system but have reasonable understanding of crime and punishment. To sentence a person to 40-years incarceration for an uncorroborated accusal by a paid informant of the prosecutorial staff is bad enough, but solitary confinement would by any standard, be cruel and unusual punishment. I have been unable to locate a single case in American jurisprudence in which anyone was sentenced to 40-years in prison based solely on a single persons uncorroborated testimony based on a crime that never took place.

I petition the Justice Department for lenience and parol for Mathew Hale. He has served over ten years, I am not aware of any nation in the entire world that would continue to hold a citizen after ten years, whose crime was based on testimony of a DOJ government informant which was not supported by any accompanying evidence.

With Respect
