Mechele says "THANKS!

Thanks to everyone who has sent Mechele letters, books, etc. And a special thanks to everyone who has posted on this blogsite. She has been sent copies and is overwelmed by your concern and that you have taken time out of your lives to be concerned with hers and her family. I would like to ask everyone if you see where reruns of "48 Hrs", "Snapped", and "Dateline" on Mechele's case are on, would you please send a post or email me personally? I have had several request to let people who have not seen the shows to post that they will be re-aired. It will probably be a little "quiet" on the blog as we are in a "limbo" state waiting for the oral arguments in December. Colin will post soon and I will keep everyone updated as we get new information. My personal thanks to all of you from the bottom of my heart!!

Thank you from Mechele!!!

Mechele called last night!!! They actually let her out of solitary confinement on her birthday!! But she didnt have phone privledges until yesterday. She is so very grateful for all the mail, books and blog messages. We also have good news to share, our appeal oral arguments will be held December 2nd. Colin will post details and a message later. As for the "Free Mechele Campaign," we are on hold for now. Focus really needs to be on getting through these oral arguments. The three judge panel will probably not read any mail relating to the case. I would feel more comfortable letting Colin explain the legal process. But, we have to keep writing, sending cards and letting her know how much we love and support her. It is so important to this case that we all send out positive thoughts and focus on this appeal court making the right decision. Once we are granted a new trial, we WILL launch a full-blown campaign to bring Mechele home!! "Thank you" doesn't express the gratitude that Mechele and our entire family feel towards each and everyone of you!!

Monday is Mechele's birthday! Good news is that she is getting out of solitare TUESDAY! We are thankful but it is ironic that they chose the day AFTER her birthday. Thanks to all of you who have posted on this blog and who have contacted me personally. We know we have a battle ahead of us, but one that we also know we will win! For anyone who wants to wish her Happy Birthday on this blog, feel free to post! I am printing and sending her all the comments that each of you have sent and continue to send. It does so much for her state of mind to know that she is thought of not just by friends and families, but perfect strangers who have looked into her situation and relalize what an injustice has been done!! My thanks, as always to all of you!

Jennifer, somehow your blog post got deleted. If you would like me to post it, please resend it. I would like to address Jennifer's concern that regardless of the courts directions, occupations are considered by jurors. As an ex-stripper, Jennifer you should be very offended by Mr. Richard A. Svobodny, the Alaska Atty. General's actions after Mechele's verdict. (see Colin's post "Appeal Update." He sent an email out congradulating his collegues , which included the quote, "Exotic dancers across Alaska are shivering with fear with the conviction of Mechele Linehan." What a perfect example of the direction Mechele's trial went.

I have received several emails asking what books to send Mechele. Check out the link to to the left of the blog. If you are unsure, feel free to email me ( to ask any questions about what she can and cannot receive . Obviously 48 hrs does not have much to air in their archieves. Seems they have repeated Mechele's segment Sunday night. I have gotten several emails and post to this blog showing support for our Mechele. We continue to offer our thanks and gratitude for your concern and support. We are anticipating oral arguments sometimes in November and as soon as I know more I will share it with you. For anyone out their who has sent a negative response to this blog, I can only reply that this blog, as the title indicates is a very positive place where our friends, family and supporters can keep updated and share our thoughts and concerns. No negative, insulting remarks will be posted on this site.
