TYRINA GRIFFIN started this petition to Board of prison term commissioners

It is a known fact for prisoners to get denied parole at their hearings due to confidential information being received on them. It is so sad to say that an inmate can make up a statement on another inmate and it be believed in the Board Room. Which then causes the board members to deny an inmate parole based on Words of another inmate. Inmates make up stories and lie on other inmates for a number of different reasons. Mainly so they can get shipped to another facility to be with their girlfriends. It is my hope to bring insight into this situation and hopefully one day change. This has been going on for decades in the prison system. Inmates who have been incarcerated for double their sentence and have met all of the requirements by the board of prison terms such as completing groups, refraining from disciplinary write ups and doing a good program have repeatedly been denied parole all because of confidential information placed in their files by another inmate. Rochelle Johnson has been incarcerated since 1992 for a total of 28 years with a sentence of 14 years plus life. She has done double her sentence and has been to board several times and has been denied all because of confidential information and because of her appearance. She is often judged  based on the way she looks .  She is a non-conforming  gender  and has had problems  with people judging her  because of her appearance all of her incarceration . She has completed a countless number of self-help groups, vocational trades and has facilitated even more. She has also been disciplinary write-up free for over 13 years. Her good behavior goes unnoticed by the board of prison terms all because of a confidential placing statements in her file.
