Received by email, June 27th 2011:
ALERT: NELI LATSON MOVED TO MENTAL HEALTH WARD, BACK IN ISOLATION

Reginald “Neli” Latson, #1441792, a wrongfully convicted autistic young man, continues to be psychologically abused by the State of Virginia. He is currently at the Greensville Correction Center, Housing Unit 5, where he has been placed in a rat-infested isolation cell and receives food via a slot irregularly.

Neli Latson lives a terrified existence where his pleas for help are met with threats from corrections officers who have no compassion or understanding of his autistic condition. This is cruel and unusual punishment!

Please call the following:

ADA Services Lois Fegan 804-674-3303 X1118

Chief of Operations – Gary Bass 804-674-3131

Dept. of Corrections Lead Investigator Kenneth Moore 804-674-3000

and demand that a health inspection and humane placement for Neli occur ASAP!
