Enclosed is a drafted letter I used to write a handful of lawyers seeking to help me on my ongoing struggles with bias parole board.
In 1999, I committed a minor offense. Was sentenced in Androscoggin superior court to a minor term of imprisonment. Judge outright told the prosecutors, “Mr. Wardwell is no longer on parole”. I have written to Auburn, ME superior court (clerks office) seeking docket # to that offense. As they have not answered my first letter. So I wrote them again last week. I am back-tracking some documentation to eventually support my multi-million dollar lawsuit down the road.
Once sentenced in 1999, some unknown probation officer or cop kidnapped me to M.S.P. Records here would prove no parole officer violated my parole. As I was on parole and was eventually “discharged”, in 1980’s. When they did eventually bring me to parole board, a five (5) year term was issued. When I went again (2007) another five years was imposed. I have been incarcerated over ten (10) years for what? Parole records cannot substantiate any documentation how I came into Maine D.O.C. custody. Past ten (10) years classification officials (about 6 various ones), and unit managers have asked me how I was brought into prison? As no ‘sentence or commitment’ paperwork exists.
You might be asking, “why did I wait over ten (10) years before filing a #2254 habeas corpus petition in U.S. District Court (Bangor)?” Because prisoners are threatened and written up for helping prisoners at M.S.P. Yep, good ole’ boy system has an iron fist on prisoners helping other prisoners. Why only one (1) paralegal is paid #320 @ [sic] to assist #700 prisoners in need of legal assistance.
Eventually I will be released from my illegal sentence and sue the state for caging up a #70 year old man. Recently, I have reassured my ex-wife I’ll be home soon. We’ll get re-married again. As a probation officer (Roy Gutfinski) one day kept hounding her to divorce me. That way, I wouldn’t have a place to parole to upon my release. She ended up throwing all my clothes away and signed divorce papers Mr. Gutfinski made out for her.
Maine is trying to possibly reinstate parole back to Maine statue. We need a whole new board. As ex-prosecutor (Neale Duffett) is blatantly violating people’s rights and this cat is a public defender in Ptld [Portland]. I always do wonder how these folks can sleep themselves to bed at night. Please do not worry about exposing the truth of this letter. 12-18-11 Bangor Daily News just published a story on me. Pretty soon I’ll be preaching a senate committee should commence and fire a bunch of bias state workers for my pains. Sincerely,
Gaylon L. Wardwell

In 2000, prison official had extra beds in their new Warren facility. I was arrested for new criminal conduct, after being on parole for #15 years or more. Pursuant to 34-A M.R.S.A. 5809 my parole sentence was eventually ‘discharged’ by penal officials. But due to new charges prison staff illegally reinstated my parole status. Lawcourt already declared this practice as illegal in State v. Rodney Austin, 663 A.2d 62 (Maine 1995). Still parole board has wrongfully held me in custody so far for over ten (#10) years.
Last month, Esquire Duffett (parole chairman) appointed me an attorney. This is highly rare.
Esq. Pagnano has been appointed to represent me. But I keep hearing your office would adamantly represent my best interest at my parole hearing and future civil rights complaint.
If your unable to represent my claims, could you possibly refer me to another attorney? I thank you in advance for your time and attention.
