Update on Scott DeMuth and why he needs a letter from you!

16 Feb

We were able to hear from Scott earlier this evening and have some updates on his situation to share with you. After he was booked last night, he was put into a holding cell with 12 other people but only 2 beds. He was stuck there until about 6pm today, when he was finally moved to a temporary housing unit. Now he’s sharing a cell area with about 4 other people and has his own bed.
He doesn’t think he’ll be able to go to the library because he’s in a temporary housing unit. He also doesn’t think he’ll be able to access his commissary account until Tuesday, Feb. 22 to buy paper, pens and envelopes.
Since we can’t send him books and he can’t go to the library, our letters are especially important. If you haven’t already, please take a moment to write him a note of support. You can send letters to him at:
Scott DeMuth
Polk County Jail
1985 – NE 51st Place
Des Moines, IA 50313-2517
Remember the mail restrictions: All mail must have the sender’s full name and return address on the envelope (no PO Boxes) or it will get rejected. No books, periodicals or packages are allowed.
Since Scott in only allowed 5 photos, please do not send him any. His family will be sending him some soon.
In solidarity,
the Scott and Carrie Support Committee (SCSC)
