Feb. 15, 2011 Davenport Grand Jury
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
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:
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.

Since Scott in only allowed 5 photos, please do not send him any. His
family will be sending him some soon.
