Bramty Haynes started this petition to Collier County State Attorney and

In the morning of December 2016 my little brother, Jeff Haynes, a hispanic latin male, 18 at the time was arrested and held in the Collier County jail awaiting trial. A year later, in the afternoon of October 18, 2017, Jeff was sentenced to 6 years of prison and 8 years probation at only at the age of 19 in the state of Florida in the district of Collier County. He was charged for burglary, a stupid thing he did and regrets more than ever. October 18 was the day everyones life had changed. Our small little family that consisted of my single mother, my older brother and myself had lost a big part of our family. At only 19 years old, when Jeff’s life should have started, it had quickly came to a hold for a foolish mistake he wishes he could take back. 

Jeff, til this day, even after suffering and going traumatic events during his time in prison, which is currently almost 4 years, is still the most loving and caring person you’ll ever meet. He will go out of his way to make sure you have a plate of food to eat and feel loved. He spends his day teaching the elderly who didn’t have the resources growing up, how to read and write. Jeff calls us and tells us unimaginable stories that will fill your heart. Stories about how these men cry after being able to write a sentence and how grateful they are to Jeff for taking his time to teach them. There is a line of gentlemen waiting to be taught by Jeff, and without hesitation Jeff takes on the task.

My brother, Jeff, who my kids call Tio Ñeñe, does these things to help others from the kindness of his heart but also to escape the racism, unfair treatment, fights, cries, and depression from his everyday life in the prison system. Imagine living in fear, especially at such a young age.

On November 1st, 2019 my mom had received a call from an unknown cell phone number. As she answered, she heard fear on the other side of the phone line. One of Jeff’s cellmates had found Jeff severely attacked, stabbed and bleeding to death. Jeff was moments away from what every person fears..death. Jeff had thought his last moments were coming to an end and begged for his cellmate to call his mom. Not being able to speak after being stabbed in the head, back and bleeding out, a prisoner had informed my mom of what had happened. I had never heard such fright and worry in my moms voice before. Before my mom could directly speak to her son or get any further information, the phone call abruptly ended. We immediately called the prison, worried that our brother was alone bleeding to death and that no staff member working in the prison was aware of what had happened to him. It was about 11 PM and we quickly called the prison and were informed Jeff was being helped by a medical team in the infirmary but they would not give us any more information. We asked if he was okay, but they didn’t want to give us an answer. We asked if he would be taken to the hospital for better medical help, no answer. We asked if we could speak to him, they said no. We asked if we could go see him and they said no. We were left in the dark. We did not know if we were every going to hear his voice again. I thought I was about to lose a brother.

Hours had gone by, and Jeff being the determined and brave guy that he is, got up from the medical bed to find a phone. He called my mom. He had told her, in tears, that he had been stabbed in the skull two times and in the back. That he was bleeding out of his ear and that they were not helping him. He had been sitting in that medical bed for HOURS waiting for medical help. Jeff told us that him as well as other men in the prison were part of a hate crime stabbing towards all latinos. We continue to call the prison, nonstop, begging for updates on our brother. We tried speaking to anyone that we could, who would be willing to give us
answers. We asked everyone why he was not being given medical attention. We begged them to help him. At this point, our calls were being left on hold, for what felt like was on purpose.

The next day comes and we get a call from my brother. He was now being held at a hospital outside of the prison. He had informed us and it was also stated in his medical report, that the medical workers in the prison had put GLUE IN HIS EAR to stop the bleeding. The doctor at the hospital said he was leaking fluids from his brain and that glue should have never been put in his ear. Once again, Jeff’s life had changed.

My little brother, who just turned 23 on August 1, was diagnosed and now suffers serve PTSD, anxiety and depression. He will not get any better in the prison that he’s at. Neglect, abuse, and hate crimes will continue to happen. He needs to be home with his family who have the time, love and resources to help him recover. A males brain doesn’t mature until the age of 25. He has spent the most crucial years in the worst environment. He needs to be given a second chance at life because there is NO life inside that prison. The inmates are treated poorly and if I could, I would fight to get every single person out who is ready for change and for a new start. 

I have the resources, a home, and a steady job ready for my little brother. His family and I are waiting and will never stopped waiting for his return and we will fight until he is released early from that tormented place America calls prison.

Our goal is to get Jeff released early from prison. Please help us show the Collier County State Attorney that Jeff is loved, that Jeff will be in good hands and that change needs to happen. I will no longer allow Jeff to be in that prison and will do all that I can to get him out so he can get the help that he needs to recover physically and mentally. Help our family and sign this petition. Your signature can change a life.
