(The photo is of  me - not Elizabeth Green!)

Ms. Elizabeth Green has been incarcerated in the Marysville, Ohio State Prision for 28 years.  She is only 45 years old.  Her birthday was October 13.

Her co-defendant was released in June 2008.  Elizabeth Green has never filed any appeals on her own behalf, but she has told me that she was currently planning to file for clemency.

We have corresponded several times.  I let her know of the wonderful, caring people I have met here on Care 2 - and the power I have seen on this site.  I offered to spread the word about her clemency filing and even to perhaps start a petition on her behalf that she could attach to the file showing the support of the "average" people  - just like us - who care about the Ms. Elizabeth Greens' of this world.

I first heard of Ms. Elizabeth Green on the WE Network, Women behind Bars, several years ago.  They chose her because she had origianlly been sentenced to the Death Penalty and her sentenced had been "reduced."  I contacted the network and asked them how I could correspond with Ms. Green.  When she told her story she mentioned that NO ONE in her family had EVER been to visit her in prison.  28 years is a long time to go without feeling that someone on the outside even knows you exist.

I have supported several other prisoner's petitions and offered them moral support as well.  Because, I believe that people change, that Ms. Elizabeth Green has served her time and that I truly would like the involved parties to seriously consider her petion for clemency.  Especially in light of them releasing her co-defendant this year.

You can reach Ms. Green at:

Ms. Elizabeth Green

#25930

O.R.W. Lincoln Cottage

1479 Collins Ave.

Marysville, OH  43040

Please take the time to drop her a line if you can - to show support, say a friendly hello, or whatever POSITIVE encouragement you can offer her.

In the meantime, I am extremely new to this end of Care 2 - and I would simply appreciate any guidance one would care to share with me as to how to best go about presenting Ms. Green's current situation to the Care 2 World Population!

Thank You so much for EVERYTHING you all have shown me ~ simple kindness, sharing joys, dedication to causes and freedoms, love of our families and friends.  I just knew I had found a second home when I found Care 2.

Sincerely,

Chellise Scranton

Hi chellise, I was incarcerated with Elizabeth for a short time. She may remember me. I am going to write her because no one deserves to be alone for 28 years. Thank you for all that you do.
Sincerely,
Dana Arnett

IS MS. GREEN STILL INCARCERATED ??? BEING AN OLD LAW INMATE, THEY CAN AND WILL HOLD HER AS LONG AS POSSIBLE TO HELP RACIALLY BALANCE THE PRISONS. OLD LAW INMATES ARE SERVING TWO, THREE AND EVEN FOUR TIMES THE AMOUNT OF TIME THAT A NEW LAW INMATE DOES. FOR THE MOST PART THEY ARE FLAT TIMERS, SHE IS WHITE, MOSTLY IT IS THE OLD LAW WHITE INMATES THAT ARE BEING HELD SO LONG JUST TO KEEP A RACIAL BALANCE....

Hi, my name is Angela Green and Elizabeth is my aunt. I only got to meet her a couple of times but not sure if she remembers me. I am sorry for the hurt and pain she have went through which i have learned over the year. She is very smart and intelligent and deserves a second chance. Everyone has a story which they turn to drugs to ease the pain. I know in my heart that she is sorry for this crime but I am willing to take this step with her even though she is far away. I miss her and love her dearly. God Bless!

You did kill a man and being on drugs is not an excuse and I think you should be put to death.

Elizabeth Green did viciously kill a man, I wonder would everyone feel the same way if she had killed your family member. The man she killed had a family. I don't feel sorry for you because you made that choice and took a life and therefore you should give up your life, be thankful for you life because you could dead like Mr. Willis.
