Greg’s transfer

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!

Greg Curry announces upcoming Transfer and Fundraiser

Greg recently sent us a video, recorded via Jpay, in which he announces our upcoming Fundraiser for his case of innocence. It is high time we found a dedicated lawyer, whom we have to pay, who is willing to fight for Greg, in order to overturn the wrongful conviction in the courts.

The Lucasville prison riot (or uprising or disturbance) of 1993 resulted not only in the death of prisoners and staff, but also in false arrests, indictions, and the use by the prosecution of state snitches, used to convict 5 people to death (the spokespeople who tried to intervene, not the actual people who did the killings!!) and at least 4 received a life sentence. One of them is Greg Curry, who at the time was not involved with any of the riots, but a snitch was instructed to get a conviction on Greg.

It is high time that these false convictions are overturned!! Let’s do it.
