Peltier Update: USP Coleman

In September, Leonard was transferred to USP Coleman in central 
Florida. His conditions initially appeared to be an improvement over 
the penitentiary in Lewisburg. but it seems his living conditions may 
indeed be much worse. For example, Leonard still isn't being allowed 
visitors. Family members have to reapply to be put on Leonard's 
visitors list. Even the attorneys (for the first time) have to be put 
on his visitors list. The attorneys have another level of approval to 
navigate, as well, but are finding it difficult to contact prison 
officials to make all the necessary arrangements. It took one 
attorney over one month to gain access to his client. Leonard is 
being isolated as never before. In addition, Leonard has been 
assigned to a top bunk. Due to a torn ligament which has never been 
repaired, Leonard's ability to climb safely is diminished. Mr. 
Peltier also should be placed in a unit with other older prisoners, 
but Coleman has Leonard listed as being 57 years of age when , in 
fact, he is 67 years old. All of Leonard's prison records over these 
many years clearly indicate his correct date of birth. Curious, right?
