Michael Griffith and a Way to Freedom

Tags

** This post is directed primarily to my friends out there who are lawyers. **

There is this fellow,, his name is Michael Griffith, who is currently serving two sequential life sentences in the Hughes Unit of the Texas Prison System. He was convicted of killing three people about 25 years ago, which he does not dispute. (His is a long story which you can read in his book)

What he does dispute, is that after he was persuaded to sign a plea bargain, the plea bargain he signed was not fulfilled. This resulted in him having to serve his sentences sequentially instead of concurrently. Which also means he will not be eligible for parole until he has served 30 years instead of 15 years. Michael has already served over 25 years and has been attempting to get this corrected for most of those years.

If you are a lawyer, and you are able to see anyway to help Michael in his quest for freedom, please contact me or Michael directly.

Thank you in advance,

Tom Zimmer

His book of course goes into much more detail about all of this, and can be read here;

Finally, here is his second letter to me after receiving my Moments books;

ROT Rally 2017

Tags

I decided not to go to the ROT Rally this year, mostly because I had just returned from a high school graduation in week long trip to California (Congratulation Claire!), and Work is heating up to near the boiling point, so I felt I needed to spend time on that. (What was I thinking?) Anyway, Debbie did go to the rally on Friday and Saturday, and I managed to get out there on Sunday for the church service and the tear down of the hospitality tent. So, even though I wasn’t there, Debbie did a pretty good job of the taking pictures thing. Enjoy!

UCOA Meeting for May at Bentwood Texas in Georgetown

Debbie and I went to the UCOA meeting out at the Bentwood Texas event center in Georgetown after church today. We had very good attendance, at a great location, and fortunately the rain held off as well and we have pleasant temperatures. The main focus of the meeting was about the upcoming ROT Rally, and we were strongly encouraged to keeper eyes open while riding, to watch out for all those RVs with bikes on trailers trying to get to the rally. As someone once said, it’s going to be hot, it’s going to be crazy out there on the roads, so keep your head on a swivel and drink lots of water. Definitely a good recommendation.

A Search for Justice in Texas : The Truth

If you are familiar my Facebook postings and the the Tragedy in Waco that happened in May 2015, as you read this you might think this is about Waco. It isn’t.

So, what is it about Tom? Get to the point!

Ok. This story is about someone in a Texas Prison. Woody Weimer allowed me to put an article (about my books) in his newsletter that gets mailed to many prison facilities to prisoners on his mailing list. Since receiving Woody’s newsletter, I have received a bunch of requests for my books. This fellow Michael Griffith sent me a request, and included a page that is essentially an advertisement for a book he has written. Now, to be clear, I have only just begun to read it, but I wanted to publish the information about his book since I thought it might be of interest to some of you that follow my blog and Facebook page. All the details are listed below, including a link that will download it to your web browser. It is a free download.

Here is a link to his book; Michael Griffith – A Search For Justice In Texas : The Truth
