Carl M. Patton is currently serving several life sentences concurrently for murders that occurred in the 1970s. He willingly admits that he has done wrong by committing these acts. His daughter, Tina Mae Patton, is currently on probation for minor offenses. The authorities at Macon State Prison have decided that she can not see her father anymore due to this, even though she has seen him multiple times in the past. There is currently no state law on the books that prevents her from seeing him on the basis of the fact that she is on probation. The warden is standing by his decision to prevent her from seeing her father. The Department of Corrections has basically said that it is a local decision and therefore, there is nothing they can do.
I am asking all my fellow Neowin readers to read Carl's letter and petition the State of Georgia to override the warden and allow Tina Mae Patton the ability to see her father.
