Rollen Update (About Time!)

Rollen is still in jail. He has recently had a hearing to determine if he should be released, but he figures there's not much chance.

He spends his days writing to news organizations, trying to get his story out. Unfortunately, the longer that he's locked up, the more likely it is that people will forget about him. The young generation would only know of him if they saw old sports videos or the ESPN clip about him that came out a few years ago.

When I write to or speak with him (he's allowed to call out), I'm unable to convince him to do more for himself. He's determined that his mission from God is to preach to the inmates. This gets him in trouble - with both staff and the other inmates, who just want to serve their time and be left alone.

Meanwhile, the years go by.
