I know some of you are aware of the battle Russell Yeager had with NDOC to be released on mandatory parole. He should have been out in February of 2010; however, he didn’t have a birth certificate, so he was held nearly FOUR years past his mandatory release date. NV-CURE worked with the media, AG’s office and legislators to assist Russell, and FINALLY he is out of prison and living in Las Vegas.
NDOC gave him a 24 hour bus pass and paid for his halfway house for two weeks only, so he is looking for work. If anyone has any leads whatsoever, please contact us.
Additionally, Russell needs occasional rides to social service offices or job interviews. He has walked over 20 miles in the past two days. If you are able to assist with this, please let us know.
PLEASE CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY AS MR. YEAGER NEEDS HELP AND WE WANT TO MAKE SURE HE STAYS IN THE COMMUNITY.
Russell is an active member of NV-CURE and we definitely want to give him all the help we can!
Russell has been in prison since BEFORE he was 16, which is why he had a mandatory parole date.Let’s help him get on his feet as soon as possible!
You can send donations with a note it is for Russell to our Paypay account (see sidebar)! We will get it to him asap. Also if someont in Vegas has an old bicycle he could have or borrow it would already help a lot.
