Greg called from Toledo C.I., and he sounded excited about being there, being on a real yard, with geese (yes the geese have landed there), and going to a chow hall to eat together with other people. He also was excited that he was no longer accompanied by guards whenever he leaves his single cell, and that he can use the phone more or less when he wants to during the day. There is so much he has missed for the last 25 years that he was entombed in the Ohio supermax that is called Ohio State Penitentiary.
Greg also had a message for all the supporters, thanking everyone for getting him transferred, and that he hoped that even though he no longer was in OSP, he hoped peopel would not forget about his plight to regain his freedom, his release after being falsely accused and wrongfully convicted since 1993. So please, stick with Greg Curry! Thank you all!
Even though Toledo C.I. has the same level 4 as what Greg was qualified for as security level, there are differences between Ohio State Penitentiary level 4 (max.) and other maximum prisons in Ohio. For instance, at OSP Greg can only go in an outside cage for “yard.” He can only have visits behind glass, whereas in other maximum prisons there is apparently normal visiting. He can go to a chow hall to eat together with others, and at OSP he could only eat alone in his cell.
It will be a big change, and there will be different challenges, but there will also be opportunities for gaining justice and doing programs and such. There will be different staff and people in captivity. This is what Greg wrote:
“Finally since 1993 I’m being returned 2 a “normal” prison. I’m looking 4ward 2 yard, chow hall and being away from this repressive place.”
We understand from different sources that Greg is already in Toledo CI, even though the inmate locator says he is still at OSP. His new address and info about the prison (incl. phone numbers for the warden, how to send money, write, etc) can be found here: https://www.drc.ohio.gov/toci
They give as correspondence address for prisoners:
(name prisoner: Greg Curry #213159)
PO Box 80033
Toledo, OH 43608
You can also write him via Jpay dot com. The Jpay email system gives his location as being at Toledo C.I.
We really hope that this is the chance for Greg to march on to justice, with all of our support of course. Let’s do this!
