False Accusations Against Rev. Pinkney

I was written a misconduct ticket when there was no misconduct. Both the ticket and the notice of intent had the wrong name. I received 180 days without use of the telephone. The MDOC does not follow their own rules. The policy states that the reviewing officer must make sure the name and number are correct. The name was wrong and MDOC still took away use of the telephone for 180 days.

The MDOC falsely accused me of smuggling, knowing I could not be at the front door at 8:30pm. They handcuffed me and took me to Level 5 segregation for six days before I was released. This was the most ridiculous charge anybody could have been charged with. I believe this phony charge would have kept me in level 5. The Sergeant told the Hearing Officer that I had written notes and was trying to smuggle them out. Thank God there was a video to prove that was completely false.

The goal of the MDOC is to silence me completely by taking away my telephone rights and my visitors' rights. They can read my mail, coming in and going out. Let the truth be told, you have an innocent man living in hell, but he is a man of God. The hypocrisy of the MDOC has no limits. We must say enough is enough!
