Change of Web Address
On 18 January, 2013, the website 'Another Place' published an article entitled 'Ronald Sanford: 170 years in Indiana State Prison'. You can read it here. More than 650,000 people have now 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 has attracted over 500,000 readers.
Less than a week after those articles were published 'Another Place' was hacked in a very professional manner from a location within the United States, and several files pertaining to the Ronald Sanford case were destroyed. The author of the articles subsequently received several threatening phone calls and emails which included threats to his family. The website relocated to a new address, losing most of its readers in the process.
The original website, renamed as Scribes and now registered in the European Union, can be found at the following address:
Many people are still following the Ronald Sanford story with great interest and the website will continue to publicize his story until the Indiana Department of Correction reviews the decision to sentence a 15 year old boy to 170 years without parole.
The website has also highlighted the story of James Harry Reyos, a native American, (Apache) who served more than 25 years in a Texas penitentiary for a crime even the prosecutor now says Reyos could not have committed.

Without the harsh light of publicity, prisoners like Ronald Sanford and James Harry Reyos will never receive justice.
