Justice and Freedom for Terrell Scott

 

If you feel that as an American, that it is your Right to have your Miranda rights read to you, if you feel it is your Right to have an attorney present, if you feel it is your Right to have a speedy trial, if you feel it is your Right to have a Bail reduction, and if you feel it is your Right to have your trial before 3 long years with only having a Court Arraignment (3 years ago on July 1, 2009)

MY SON TERRELL SCOTT WAS DENIED ALL OF THIS!!!! AND HAS SAT BEHIND BARS NOW FOR 3 YEARS WITHOUT A TRIAL!!!! Please read my son's story......Thank you so much.

***Update***

Tues. Sept. 11, 2012

The warden called me at 3:25 pm, and told me that they found Terrell between 6-7 A.M. yesterday unresponsive, and not breathing. He was taken to Easton Hospital, in a coma, no brain activity, no signs of trauma, or over drug overdose, which only leads to lack of air that would put someone into a coma. I could go on, and on. Yesterday was Hell. They won't give me any info, and had police there for me to leave the hospital.They won't let me see my son. All I want to do is see my son. My heart is so much in pain.

I got a chance to see my son this past Fri. He did come out of the coma!!!! Terrell wasn't able to talk due to still being on life support. He was only able to move his eyes, which at time tears rolled down his cheeks, and he was able to lightly squeeze my finger. My family and I are unable to find out any info on how Terrell is doing because Northampton County Prison ordered Easton Hospital not to give us any info on how Terrell is doing, and when we call the prison they are reluctant to give us details. And the kicker is that my son's lawyer went on vacation. It pains me so and my heart is so heavy and sad that I can't get any news about my son since last Fri. afternoon.

Hi I'm Holly,

I am the mother of Terrell Scott who is now a twenty six years old who suffers from a very serious form of Schizophrenia. I have been getting him treatment for his mental illness since the age of around five.

The link below is a website I made that gives more information on Schizophrenia, and my son's story.

After you read the information about my son, I hope you can see why I'm asking for your signature for my Petition here on Change.org or if you want, you can send a letter of support for my son Terrell Scott to....

My son unfortunately was charged three years ago (July 1, 2009) with several crimes. Even thou there isn't any proof or evidence to show any crimes were committed at all, his attorney (Phil Lauer) stated that the Assistant DA (Patricia Broscius) has no evidence against my son. Terrell has only had an arraignment, (3 years ago) has not been offered any bail reduction, and no trial date even after spending 3 years in County Prison.

The charges are considered very serious. He was sent to Northampton County Prison ( Located in Easton, PA) in July 1 of 2009 and has been incarcerated ever since.

Presently, Terrell has been locked up in his cell since this past February at Northampton County Prison for 23 hours a day, (the worse thing you can do to someone who suffers from Schizophrenia. Warden Batemen stated that Terrell has never been a problem inmate...so what is the reason Terrell is being kept locked in his cell for 23 hours a day?) without getting any proper mental health therapy since being sent back this past February from an unsuccessful 7 and 1/2 month stay at Norristown State Hospital (located in Norristown, PA)

Terrell was sent to Norristown State Hospital because he suffered from a nervous breakdown while under PC in Northampton County Prison from being raped, (and placed in the "Hole for two months), beaten over the head, which caused him to loose his hearing in one ear, and the loss of part of his vision in one eye; effecting Terrell's mind greatly, not to mention it's 3 years in total of his incarceration.

I am seeking any help I can find for my son. Any Resources, Advocates, Agencies that offer help to the Mentally ill. Attorneys who are willing to help my son Pro-bono or maybe workout a payment plan. I am seeking help from an Attorney who is willing to fight for my son and have him released from incarceration and his charges dismissed.

It was told to me by my son's attorney that "if" the Petition for Discharge is granted and my son is discharged, the criminal charges will remain pending for as long as the DA wants to pursue it or until the expiration of ten years, whichever is less. How is that fair to my son?.

It has been three years this July that he will have been incarcerated and neglected of Mental Health Treatment. He needs to come home. So I am asking anyone who is able and willing to help or if you know of someone who can help, to please contact me as soon as possible. My family and I would be so grateful.

Thank you for taking the time to read and to sign my Petition,
