Greg speaks on the commemoration of Lucasville 25 years – and the transfer that did not happen

Greg Curry speaks on having to stay in Ohio State Penitentiary for at least 1 1/2 years more, because he was tricked into believing he was going to transfer, and the importance of fundraising for his release as an innocently convicted person.

In April of 2018 it will be 25 years ago that a disturbance or riot, caused by inhumane, extremely strict dictatorial management at the Lucasville prison in Ohio led to the murder of 10 people, and the construction of the supermaximum security prison in Youngstown. Those convicted were not the actual perpetrators or murderers, but people who refused to snitch for a deal with the prosecutors or investigators, and some of them had been negotiators between the factions that were united during the riot.

Greg was not involved with any gang, and the causes of the uprising were not his focus, instead, he had been concentrating on his release that was not far away. And yet, he was indicted because he did not want to make a deal about something he had no responsibility in.

During the trial, snitch testimony was used to get him convicted. 25 years later, Greg and others who did not murder or hurt anyone, are still in prison with life sentences or the death penalty. This is injustice! Ohio must step up its conscience and stop this wrongful incarceration now!
