I received the following in the mail today. Handwritten on a yellow sheet of lined paper and dated 8-31-04.
"To whom it may concern
I would like to apologize for the delay in the lack of communication. I was recently arrested for downloading movies and music and am being prosecuted for it. The ISP I was using monitored my activity. The only peice of equipment that was confiscated was a PC I was using. I am currently incarcerated awaiting sentencing on 4 counts of possession of copyrighted material and 1 count of (word crossed out) using a computer to commit a crime. My attorney says that I have a 6 month cap so I will only get up to 6 months in the county jail. As far as deals (word crossed out) I had w/ the applefritter members, they are on hold until I get released. I had most everything prepped and ready to ship. The day I was going to Ship stuff out I got arrested. Im being held without bond. Please post a message on applefritter explaining the situation. I do apologize for any inconviencence this may have caused. And never have heard of being prosecuted for having movies and music. The possession of copyrighted material is a felony in michigan punishable by up to 15 years in the states prison. and everythring will be taken care of upon my release.
(scribble that might be a first name and an L)
(P.S crossed out)"
On the back side - "to be mailed to the puter guy"
There you have it, copied as close as I could. I may have corrected some misspellings without noticing it. I'll be holding onto this, if anyone else receives anything I suggest they do the same. I'll scan it if anyone really wants to see.
I'm going to hold off a bit before commenting on what I think of this letter.
