Justin Welch 579750, CCI, PO Box 900, Portage, WI 53901
Justin is a deep thinker which is one of the reasons he is also very good at self torture. In the darkest period of his life he took a murder job-he is paying for that murder with a life sentence and gives himself no peace over his act. He is mentally ill and receives no health care, Has spent most of his years in solitary and has engaged in self harm . At one point he worked himself out of solitary and was doing well in a kitchen job when a homemade knife was found and he was blamed. "Why would I fashion a homemade knife when I work around knives all day?" he asked. All progress gone, back to seg.
His greatest wish is to get back to California where his mother and kids are. So far both DOCs have refused but we are not through trying,
Justin is a keen observer and is concerned about the welfare of other prisoners as well as his own.
