I saw James (Jimmy) Stone on Lockup today. Did he ever get to go back to the prison where he was allowed to have his cat? All prisons should allow a cat or dog there. It changes the people.
Why was he given such a terrible sentence when it was attempted murder?
His parents and sister talked to.

Be kind for everyone is fighting a battle
According to the article that I read this was at Indiana State Prison. On the state DOC web site he is no longer at Indiana State. Not defending the DOC or anything but keep in mind that a lot of times when certain types of privileges are taken away there are reason for it. I read a few years back that this particular privilege had been stopped for the welfare of the animals. We do have animal programs in some of our prisons. The current program is set up to socialize homeless or stray animals so they can go to a forever home as a loved pet.
