This summer I was able to give an interview for this article, Locked Up in Lockdown: The COVID19 Toll for Prisoners and Their Loved Ones, written about COVID19 inside American prisons, as well as prisons in Australia. Thank you to Venetia Vecellio for writing this article and taking the time to speak with me.

As of 12/13/20 it has been nearly 10 months since I have been allowed to see my husband Sean. He has been moved from the cell that he shared with the same cellmate for over 4 years and housed in a cell with a complete stranger. They are on yet another lockdown, there have been too many to count by this point. Corcoran has had another rise in positive cases lately, after searches of the yards were conducted again, even after the first search yielded nothing but a rise in positive cases. Phone calls are again suspended, with canteen now not being run. We have not had regular phone calls for months, and 30 minute video calls once every 30 days have begun for some facilities as the holidays approach without any safe options for visiting being implemented. The nearby facility SATF is at 600+ positive cases, down from over 1,000. So far a total of 97 incarcerated people have died from COVID19 within the walls of the California Department Of Corrections. And that is truly heartbreaking.

About Sean & Eiam

Sean O'Brien was wrongfully convicted in adult court in El Dorado County, California and sentenced to Life Without Parole at the age of 16 without a shred of physical evidence tying him to the crime for which he was convicted. Sean and I have been friends since grade school and we were married in 2017. We live and grow together in love with the knowledge of his innocence, our faith, and hope for our future. We embrace this journey, wherever it may take us, cherishing each moment we have together and staying true to our hearts. This blog is about the past we share, our life together and our fight for justice. Thank you for reading. God bless.
