Change of Web Address
On 18 January, 2013, the blog 'Another Place' published an article entitled 'Ronald Sanford: 170 year in Indiana State Prison'. You can read it here. More than 290,000 people read the article, leaving more than 100 comments. Several Facebook pages instigated a campaign and a second article entitled 'Ronald Sanford: The Forgotten Man', was published - that article is here. This second piece attracted over 100,000 readers.
Less than a week after those articles were published 'Another Place' was hacked in a very professional manner, (the hackers were not U.K. based) and several files pertaining to Ronald Sanford were destroyed. The author of the articles subsequently received several threatening phone calls and emails which included threats to his family. The website was relocated to a new address, losing most of its readers in the process.
The original blog, renamed as Scribes and now registered as a European domain, can be found at the following address:
Many people are still following the Ronald Sanford story with great interest and the blog will continue to publicise his story until the Indiana Department of Correction reviews the decision to sentence a 15 year old boy to 170 years without parole.
The blog has also highlighted the story of James Harry Reyos, a native American, (Apache) who has served more than 25 years in a Texas penitentiary for a crime even the prosecutor now says Reyos could not have committed. Read it here. Without the harsh light of publicity, innocent men like this will never receive justice.
