‘When this virus gets behind bars, it runs like wildfire,’ experts warn

"George Texeira thinks he might not make it. Fifty years old and serving a 25-year sentence at Sing Sing prison in New York for a burglary, he feels vulnerable to the coronavirus raging through the facility.

For his crime, “he doesn’t feel like he’s innocent, but doesn’t feel like he should have been given 25 years for it,” said Lawrence Bartley, the director of the News Inside, a print publication from The Marshall Project distributed in prisons across the country. Bartley, who has been talking to prisoners worried about contracting COVID-19, says that Texeira feels that “now he won’t even make it to see civilization because COVID-19 has turned his sentence into a death sentence possibly.”

"Waiting is negative; hoping is positive. so try to wait with hope. This will help you remember that you're on your way to something worth waiting for."
