Connie Farris – Age 73 – 12 Year Sentence for Mail Fraud


It’s critically important that I return home as soon as possible because my husband, Rex, has Muscular Dystrophy and can no longer care for himself.

Based on my age, medical condition, and exemplary programming, I will benefit from The First Step Act and hope it passes.

I’m a first offender and in poor health, but I am young at heart, working for the Trust Fund as an Orderly in charge of the computer and phone systems. I have completed an endless list of courses, plus mentored many women during my incarceration.

I was one of four women who brought the “GOGI” Getting Out by Going In, program to FCI Dublin and taught it for 4 years. I was a mentor to others, Peer Coach Facilitator for nearly 3 years, teaching “Positive Decision Making” to women. I have received numerous certificates from GOGI, and a letter of recommendation by Coach Leigh Erin Carlson, National Director of Programs.

It’s critically important that I return home as soon as possible because my husband, Rex, has Muscular Dystrophy and can no longer care for himself. He is a veteran and our story was published in the Marshall Project, entitled Caring for My Sick Husband From Prison

The First Step Act will provide additional time credits to those of us who have worked hard to program and mentor others by reducing our sentences based on a reward system for our achievements plus provide us with 54 good days per year which will send me home sooner than the current outdate.
