Update: 10.27.12 - Tim DeChristopher Arrives at Halfway House
Tim DeChristopher has safely arrived at a halfway house in Salt Lake City, UT where he will serve out the remainder of his two year sentence. Contrary to recent media reports, DeChristopher has not been "released" and remains an inmate of the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) until April 21, 2013.
As a federal inmate, DeChristopher cannot speak to media, and is not allowed visitors or media on the property of the halfway house without permission from the BOP. We ask that media and supporters of DeChristopher respect these guidelines and contact Dylan Rose Schneider to submit media or visitation requests.

"Throughout my incarceration I have witnessed the direct personal impacts of a legal system obsessed
with technicalities rather than justice. The prisons I have been in are filled with nonviolent inmates suffering from mandatory minimums and other policies which are completely detached from the best interests of the individual or society. The injustice on display in my case is truly systemic, and we will put our continuing efforts toward creating a system of genuine justice for all."
