My name is Salih Abdullah.
I am 74 years old. I have been incarcerated since 1973.
I was first eligible for parole release in 1997 at the age of 51.
I have been to the parole board 13 times.
Each parole board after that has imposed a 24 month hold with an identical basis, always citing the “nature of the original crime” despite the undisputed fact that I do not present a safety risk to the community.
I have now served 45 years on a sentence of 25 to life.
Help bring me home.
