How a jail inmate was able to get his own phone number, his own email and his own Facebook account to his family
Posted October 06, 2018 02:09:51Ashley Greene was an inmate at the Whittier Correctional Facility in California’s Ashland County, when he was sentenced to life in prison in 2009 for the 1993 murder of his wife, Teresa Greene.
Her family, friends and supporters rallied to keep Greene on the outside and on probation while his sentence was appealed, hoping that he would be released to spend the rest of his life in a California halfway house.
When he finally was released, he told his family that he was living at the halfway house and working on his legal case.
His legal team asked the court to consider his request to be transferred to a halfway house, but he was denied.
He was placed on the street and locked in his cell for nearly two years before he was finally freed.
After a five-year battle to free Greene, the state Department of Corrections in California announced in August that it had granted a final request by Greene’s legal team for a transfer.
The department is planning to release Greene on October 31.
He will be moved to the state halfway house in Whittiers, a small town about 60 miles south of Sacramento.
His family is expected to arrive at the facility soon.
The state’s attorney general announced earlier this month that he had agreed to review Greene’s request for transfer.
The judge in the case has said he is still considering the request.
In the video, Greene’s lawyer, Michael McBride, said Greene is grateful to the California Department of Justice for allowing him to be released and said his family is grateful for the support from the state.
“I don’t know if we can say thank you to them all the way to the top,” McBride said.
McBride said his client is a young man who came to California with little support.
He has no criminal record, but has a history of mental health problems, including depression, bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder.
“He’s just not in a good place.
He’s just a victim of circumstance.
We’re grateful that the system is allowing him the chance to get on the path of healing,” McBridens lawyer said.”
It’s unfortunate that the courts are treating him like he’s guilty.
It’s unfortunate because he has the ability to get out,” he added.
