My father, Mr. Thomas David Wineinger Prisoner # A727413, is currently incarcerated in the North Central Correctional Institution in Marion Ohio, and is being hospitalized at the Franklin Medical Center in Columbus Ohio. Mr. Wineinger has been diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer, which has metastasized to his bones. He is also in end stage liver failure, which has left him with days to live, if he’s not already passed. The Wineinger family, and myself, are contacting you to request help in securing a compassionate release by means of parole, so he can be with his family in the final stages of his terminal illness.

Thomas David Wineinger meets the criteria set forth by the Ohio Revised Code, 2967.05, Release as if on parole of dying prisoner. 

My father is close to death and poses no threat to society. He is currently a financial burden to the State and could be safely released with no threat to public safety. He has family who will take care of him and take full responsibility for him,  if you grant us the opportunity to do so. 

My family has not even been granted the opportunity to speak to Mr. Wineinger since his transfer and I, his only son, have not had the opportunity to speak to my father since he has fallen ill. I served five faithful and honorable years in the United States Marine Corps, was deployed to Iraq for Operation Iraqi Freedom, and was injured while serving overseas. I am currently employed by Rolls-Royce as a Turbine Engine Instructor and contribute to our great society, as well as our country, on a daily basis by means of training our military and foreign allied militaries around the globe. I believe I should be allowed to at least to speak to my father before he dies, especially when we have the means and resources to do so. I have been denied phone contact and information by both the North Central Correctional Institution, and the Franklin Medical Center. The Wineinger family is pleading, with tears in our eyes, to please let our father, brother, uncle and loved one out from prison, so that he may not die alone, chained to a bed. He is a good man, and has not committed any violent crimes against another human, and does not deserve this kind of cruel treatment.    

Therefore we humbly request that you allow Mr. Wineinger’s family to care for him in his final days, and grant him a Compassionate Release by means of parole.

Thank you for your time, and any expedited requests that you can help us with. We know that time is of the essence with this unique case, but we believe you can help us shed light to this cause, and help us spend what little time we may have left with Mr. Wineinger.
