So many of you have been thinking about and praying for Misty, and sending kind wishes her way. She tells me every day when we talk how much she appreciates your support. Misty will never give up hope and loves to get your cards and letters. New: Florida prisons FINALLY have email! Go to JPay.com and sign up for an account. You can send Misty commissary money, email her, and even send her thirty second video clips.
Each of you, who are supporters of Misty, have your life's challenges and struggles, and, have asked what you can do to help. Misty doesn't enjoy the same freedoms as do you and I. She can't call someone unless they are on her approved phone list, and then, only after 5 p.m. during the week. On the weekends, the lines are so long, she sometimes waits two hours to make a fifteen minute (maximum allowed) call to a friend or family member. Between working and going to school, Misty tries to get to the commissary on the weekend IF they open the yard and IF someone has put money on her books. Once she gets there, she has to stand in line at times for over an hour just to buy her favorite snacks or soap or other hygiene products. Do you enjoy your favorite shampoo or body wash each day? Misty gets to buy "real" shampoo and conditioner only twice a year. Misty looks forward to getting your cards, letters, photographs, notebook paper, envelopes, and stamps, emails, pictures, and videos. She no longer has family in Florida, so she gets few visitors. If she wants more than a hotel size bar of soap, she has to buy it. If she wants generic shampoo or conditioner, she has to buy it. If she wants hygiene products, she has to buy them. A few times each year, she can order clothes, such as undergarments, and shampoo and special food. The only thing the prison provides, other than her "blues" and shower slides, are three "meals" a day. She really appreciates it when her supporters send her money for the commissary. If just a few more people, including you, in addition to wishing her the best, wouldput a few dollars a month on her commissary account, it would make a big difference.
You see, Misty doesn't enjoy the same freedoms you and I do. Misty can't do anything to improve her situation...but you can. You can send her money through JPay, or at Wal-mart through MoneyGram "Pay a Bill" to purchase things like hygiene products, coffee, soup, and things they don't offer in the mess hall. Before you seal the envelope, Please check the Florida DOC (see link on the left) website for the rules and regulations on what and much you can send of each item, such as envelopes, paper, and stamps. All envelopes must be sent U.S. Mail First Class.
Misty in now in her eighth year of being incarcerated As you may know, Misty didn't commit a violent crime, nor did she sell anything illegal street drugs (only prescription drugs). Her crime was being tricked into selling pain pills to an undercover detective with "severe back pain" repeatedly calling her on her phone begging her to get him prescription pain pills. Drug trafficking? I think not. Many believe that Misty was and is being punished because Florida law enforcement is unable to solve a kidnapping, and she is the scapegoat (along with her brother, Tommy). Not only did they bait and trap Misty in a sting operation, they elicited the help of an informant-snitch, who befriended Misty under the pretense of helping find the little kidnapped girl. When police lie to a suspect, it's called "playing a role", and is legal. When suspects lie to police, it's called obstruction, and is a crime. How about the presiding judge who wanted to make a name for herself? She could have and should have sentenced eighteen year old Misty, with no record, to the six-year youthful offender program. Instead, she gave her an unbelievable twenty-five years as a "drug trafficker"! Because of this, Misty has missed out on her teenage and young adult years, which she can never get back. Criminals who have committed violent crimes, even murder, get much lesser sentences.
