Maine State Prison “Pilot Programs” Equal Loss of Inmate Rights

Dear Sophie;
My name is [name & number omitted], Maine State Prisoner. You were an advocate for us, until the Prison tried to sever ties, because the prison did not want the public to be addressed about what goes on behind the closed doors of the Maine State Prison. As I write the prison is putting the finishing touches on what they call “Pilot Programs” forcing prisoner to sign away privilages [sic] and rights. Some of the forceful “impliments” [sic] are just down right cruel. I am hoping that you are still interested to help prisoners. If so please write to [name, relationship, and address omitted]. [omitted] will forward your letter directly to me. There are (2) conditions
A) You must sign your letter Sincerely Yours or do not sign at all
B) My lawyer advised, that any inmate that writes to you add “I forfeit all rights to this letter, to the person who is in possession, to do with as they see fit”

After the first couple of letters I believe it would be easier to get document to you via the internet, but either way, using (B) takes away their reprocussion [sic] powers against the inmate.

I appreciate your time and patience to read this letter,
Thank-you
[name omitted]
