IMPRISONED FOR TWO YEARS WITHOUT TRIAL! Travis Firecloud, a Native American, is in Hughes County Jail at 3100 E. Hwy., 34 Pierre St., South DeKota, zip 57501, phone (605)773-7475. His sister, Janice Howe, says Travis does not have a prison I.D. number because he's never been found guilty of anything.
Janice Howe invites emails from people who can help at firstname.lastname@example.org. She describes her brother's situation:
I have an adopted brother who is mentally retarded FAS, with an I.Q. of 62. Travis was falsely accused in federal court of aggravated sexual abuse of a child. Travis has no blood relatives. My mother raised him. After Travis came of age, he stayed with my parents and helped with all children, not ever hurting anyone. After arrest, he went all over the United States to be evaluated, only to be given the same diagnoses that the psychologist had given my mother: Travis is of no danger to anyone. He just returned from Butner, North Carolina. Psychiatrists recommended for Travis to be released from custody. Authorities would release him to someone who has no children, but everyone has children. Travis has been held for two years and one month.
I have been trying to post on your wall. MY LIYTLE BROTHER TRAVIS WAS RELEASED TODAY FROM FEDERAL CUSTODY. CALLED MY DAD - HE WENT UP, AND THEY RELEASED HIM. HE IS FREE!!!!
Praise God, Janice, your brother is home. I give thanks to have been of some measure of help to you, my sister. Thank God for whatever just officials ordered his release. Thank you for letting us know. Many blessings!
