I write this email to bring to your attention an injustice being done to Yahzur A. Yo'Seph.

On May 15th,2016 while entering his motel room in Tampa florida he was attacked by a man that was hiding in the motel bathroom.This man admitted he was hiding in the bathroom, and that the young lady that Yahzur Yo'Seph allowed to stay in the room because of their relationship gave him permission to hide in the bathroom unbeknownst to Yahzur and without his permission.Jimmy Streets was hiding In The bathroom when Yahzur entered his room. The record will show that not only was he hiding in the bathroom but he texted  Shynese Green about Yahzur, before he went to the room to spend time with her. The injustice in this case is because of Yahzurs record, being an black male,his freedom and citizenship did not matter  the facts in his favor were overlooked in favor of an unjust prosecution of him to get a conviction, as opposed to serving the public with true service. Mr.Yahzur Yo'Seph was charged with robbery or attempted robbery, but was acquitted of this charge, he was also charged with aggravated battery of which he admitted to because he was defending himself. The Supreme court of Florida, has said in the case William's versus State, " that if the felony that a defendant is charged with in a case where he/she claimed self defense they are found not guilty of then they must be acquitted of the charge of murder, aggravated, etc. Mr.Yo'Seph was found not guilty of any crime except defending himself from surprise. Because of his skin color  he was not treated with fairness or given Any benefit of an investigative doubt because of the circumstances surrounding black males in the criminal justice system. I'm asking you Andrew Warren to look at this case because its wrong  to continue keep Yahzur Yo'Seph incarcerated because he's not white.
