Been trying to reach jim Parks to have my husband transferred from Deerfield to a closer facility so I can visit him.He was sent 460 miles from his home to a facility where no one from his area is sent and I cant travel that far to visit him.He is ill and needs constant care and was in this condition when judge Henry Vanover sent him there despite a request from probation officer that he could serve his sentece in a homebound setting where he could still receive his disability and medicare.Vanover had a personal grudge due to a legal matter years ago and refused to step down.The institute is carrying on that grudge for Vanover.Inmates are still people and deserve humane treatment.
