Those of us here at New Folsom State Prison are at odds with the overwhelming number of parole denials here, as well as overly negative board psych reports. The fact that less than 4 percent of prisoners here are paroled should speak volumes to the public as well as state legislatures who enacted SB 261 and like bills.

Prisoners who have served over 25 years and have completed many rehab programs and self-help programs should be eligible for parole. And yet, because we are housed here at a Level 4 prison, specifically New Folsom, we are being denied parole for any reason the board can come up with that may seem legit.

Over 85 percent of us have job offers and transitional housing acceptance. We have community support as well as family support. Yet nothing is good enough. We are being denied parole beyond our EPRD (Earliest Possible Release Date).

The fact that less than 4 percent of prisoners here are paroled should speak volumes to the public as well as state legislatures who enacted SB 261 and like bills.

We need your help! New Folsom has a hidden policy to deny parole to all who enter.
