Hugo Pinell's Parole Hearing rescheduled to May 2nd, 2014

Hugo Pinell allowed a phone call for the first time in more than 40 years

Greetings All:

We’re happy to report the good news re our Yogi Bear, Hugo Pinell.

After well over 40 years, Yogi was given the opportunity to make a phone call to his family.  He tried calling his mom at first, but got the answering machine; so he called his sister, Agnes.  And they had a very emotional voice-to-voice reunion.

And there’s more:  This next weekend, Feb. 15 – 16, Hugo will get a three-hour CONTACT VISIT with his mother, whom he has not been able to hug since the early 1970s.

We’ve also been informed that New Folsom FB-FAC allows prisoners to get 3 hours of yard if they so choose.  However, they’re in locked cages and cannot return before the 3-hour timeset.  They can communicate with other prisoners in adjacent cages.

Let’s hope the next good news will be a positive outcome at his May 2nd Parole Board hearing.

Hugo Pinell's Parole Hearing rescheduled: May 2nd, 2014

We received news from Hugo Yogi Pinell's attorney's office that his Parole Hearing has been rescheduled for Friday, 5/2/14 at 8:30 AM.

In a way, this might be good as we'll have more time to provide support to Keith Wattley of UnCommon Law and Yogi before the hearing.
A note from Attorney Wattley:
About Hugo's Parole Hearing (May 2nd):

Hugo's, attorney, Keith Wattley, noted: "We should shift our hearing preparation a little bit by providing some specific types of support for his release.  That means that we want letters from individuals or groups offering residence, employment and counseling (from psychologists, psychiatrists, religious and spiritual leaders, etc.) to help his transition out of prison after all these years.  None of these letters need to discuss the politics or injustice of his situation.  Just the facts, please.  

Send letters addressed to the Parole Board to Hugo's Attorney Keith Wattley:

"All letters should be addressed to the Board of Parole Hearings, P.O. Box 4036, Sacramento, CA 95814,BUT THEY SHOULD ACTUALLY BE MAILED, EMAILED OR FAXED DIRECTLY To: 

Attorney Keith Wattley

FAX: (510) 271-0101

I'll need to review these letters before we submit them to the Board, and I may send some of them back for editing.  Please feel free to spread this information to other supporters you know.  

Do not send any petitions or form letters.  We cannot use them.

Thanks for all your continuing support."

Please write to Yogi and check out his website:  Hugopinell.com.

Forward forever; backwards never!
