Charles Downing



Charles Downing 0099670, 

NLCI, PO Box 400; New Lisbon, WI 53950






August 11, 2016

White, divorced father of one, 55, 6’2” and 280 pounds. I have receding brown and gray hair and blue eyes. I’ve been confined since 1991 due to three separate cases and will be eligible for parole when I’m 219 years of age (which will change if I can get the case I am innocent of overturned) My sense of humor is my coping tool that  graces me with a personality that draws other prisoners toward me.

For several years I have written short stories, many poems and a couple of tunes. My last poem was in 2007.

It has been a long , dark and lonely walk these past 25-plus years and I’m hoping people would like to be penpals, assist me in my legal struggle to prove my innocence, do searches for me on the internet, public files and open records requests

Please no stickers on the envelope or writing paper and no perfumed letters: The mailroom rejects these letters.

Yours, Charles Downing

                                




More on Charles Downing:

In prison since 1991, "Chuck" tells his story here. He claims he is innocent and that even the blood types used at trial did not match the ones found at the crime scene; that he was found guilty mostly because of a baseball cap. He's looking for support to initiate a bid to prove his innocence along with needing a friend. Here are links to his story.
