As a young man, Chris served 4 years in the United States
Armed Services only to return home and catch a case for petty theft.
Chris was placed in the Indiana Reformatory to do his time. Chris was
three months away from being released and was planning for his future.
On February 1, 1985 during a shakedown, Chris and others witnessed
another inmate being sprayed with mace, beaten with a bat while he is
shackled. Inmates were yelling "they are going to kill him" chaos
erupting in the prison cell that led to a riot. Although no lives were
taken, no plans for a riot prepared, it was not premeditated. These
young men were there and witnessed the inmate's brutal beating first
hand and felt for the inmate's life as well as their own lives and
fought back. His involvement in a 1985 prison riot turned his 4-year
prison sentence into a 142-year sentence. Sign the Petition... Justice
