Gary was moved to ADX about 10/11 years ago from Terre Haute, Indiana, for no apparent reason. He did not have any write ups or any infractions that warranted him being moved to the worst SuperMax prison that houses terrorist and gangs, such as the UniBomber. We have been battling ever since to find out why they moved him and to get him out of there. I even involved a Congressman. The BOP’s excuse to this Congressmen that Gary was transferred to ADX for “adjustment purposes.” Then they tell Gary it was because this article he wrote, which tries to bring peace between Christians and Pagans. It does not incite violence or anything like that. Here is some of the paperwork.
Gary’s mail has been messed with for a long time. Many times he don’t get his mail or his mail never makes it out. This has been going on for years! Even as I stated in a previous post, his legal mail has been messed with. I am writing the Post Master General, and if you’ve had trouble communicating with him, I suggest you to the same! I am posting the Code, address, and a sample letter. But with mine, I am going to include copies of remedies where Gary filed on this! Please write the Post Master General if you’ve had problems communicating with Gary! The ADX is committing a federal offense!
Not only was Gary not allowed a visit with his attorney for his parole hearing in 2016, he has always even had problems with legal mail. Sometimes he wouldn’t get his legal mail or it wouldn’t make it out to the attorney. Additionally, legal mail is not supposed to be opened in the mail room, it is supposed to be open by the prisoner. Here is an example of when the mailroom violated this right. Gary has filed remedies many times and of course, nothing is done.
As many of you know, in 2009, Gary was given a 2014 parole date. However, he was given Notice of Actions wanting that parole date vacated because of internet posts that Gary did not make. He was at ADX without computer access. The first parole examiner, who was a Black man, couldn’t find any reason to vacate the 2014 parole date. The BOP wasn’t happy with this result so they gave Gary another Notice of Action. This time, the parole examiner decided to vacate the 2014 parole date and add a 15 year hit. Here is the paperwork that Gary was given and his appeal
My husband has always told me about the unsanitary conditions at Florence ADX, including during cell rotation and in the rec cage. He has quit taking his hour rec, even when it is available (most times they don’t have staff to take prisoners to the rec cage). He has quit going to the rec cage because it is generally covered in feces. The prisoners are made to do cell changes every so often, and the prisoner inhabiting the cell is supposed to clean it be he moves to the next cell; however, many don’t. Then Gary is left to clean body fluids from the former prisoner with NO gloves or proper cleaning agents. My husband has filed multiple remedies on this cause it is unsanitary and a health risk, and these remedies are always rejected.
As many of you know, my husband has very severe Rheumatoid arthritis, which is very painful! I have regular arthritis and inflammation from a very huge back surgery, and I lived in pain until I got into pain management. If any of you have dealt with this amount of pain, you know it affects your functioning and can even cause severe depression. If you haven’t been there, do not judge!! Pain management gave me back my life! But anyways, they have messed around with Gary’s pain management many, many times. You don’t put somebody on an opiate long-term and then deny them cold-turkey, this could kill a person! This has been done to Gary many, many times! Here is just one of the recent times and the remedy
Gary sacrificed basically his whole life for us. He was only 28 years old when he went to prison, he is now 61 years old. Writing this letter might not accomplish anything, but it is worth a try. All you have to do is copy, paste and print (or write out by hand) and then stamp and mail. Takes a very few minutes of your day for somebody who sacrificed so much!
Honorable President Trump,
I am writing you about Gary Yarbrough, Federal Prisoner #09883-016, who is currently housed at Florence ADX. Gary was arrested in 1984 and convicted of RICO, armored car robbery, and counterfeiting. I have seen much worse criminals, including murderers do much less time.
In 2009, he was given a parole date of 2014. Subsequently, he was given a Notice of Action. This Notice of Action said they were holding a reverse hearing because of internet posts made about him on political websites. Gary had nothing to do with these posts, he was at ADX without computer access. The first parole examiner found no reason to vacate Gary’s parole date. The BOP was not satisfied with this decision, so they held a second reconsideration hearing. The second parole examiner decided to give Gary a 15 year set off date, which was the action that the BOP desired.
A parole attorney was hired for Gary’s 2016 parole hearing. ADX frustrated him in every way. This attorney was not even allowed a legal visit with Gary before the parole hearing. It took the attorney over three months just to arrange one legal call! Of course, Mr. Yarbrough was denied parole.
Gary has had no major infractions and has worked every program the BOP has ask him to. We believe Gary is just being held for his political beliefs. Prisoners still have Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion. When did this penal system turn into one that violates these rights? His mail is rejected or most of the time he does not even receive it.
Gary’s health is precarious, and he is not getting adequate treatment for his health problems. He has severe Rheumatoid Arthritis, and a genetic blood disorder, where his body produces to much iron. He has even been denied an anti-inflammatory diet, which was prescribed by a doctor. He is not given the blood-letting he needs for his blood disorder. His RA is so bad that it is starting to cause inflammation on his brain. He has also been abused by staff.
He was severely beaten by guards in Atlanta. He was beaten so bad, while handcuffed and shackled, that he was in a wheelchair months after the beating. Nothing was ever done to the guards who did this injustice because the paperwork was supposedly lost.
Gary has mostly been in solitary confinement prisons his 33 years in prison, which is in humane. He has been at Supermax in Florence, Colorado for over 11 years. This is cruel and unusual punishment! SuperMax or the BOP have never given us a clear reason why he is at ADX.
President Trump, could you please investigate Gary’s situation and consider giving him a compassionate release? He has done more time than anybody else would do for the crimes he has been convicted of. Gary’s incarceration costs the taxpayers more than $68,270 per year. He has paid his debt to society and just wants to be home with his family.
Thank you for your time.
Here is the address to send it to:

You can also email by going to http://www.whitehouse.gov and going to contact us. However, I imagine snail mail would be better.
Thank you for helping!!!!!
