T. Michael Colbert,Port of Harlem’s incarcerated
contributor, reports that he is doing well after prison authorities
accused two other inmates of stabbing a correctional officer to death
at the maximum-security Maryland House of Correction in Jessup, MD
where Colbert is also a prisoner.
Authorities charged Lee E. Stephens, 27, and Lamarr C. Harris Jr., 35
with first- and second-degree murder in the stabbing of correctional
officer David McGuinn. Both were already serving life sentences.
“We are confined to our cells 24/7 until they decide whatever they plan
to do. I am eating plenty of bologna and peanut butter and jelly
sandwiches. But I’ll survive,” Colbert writes. Read “Colbert’s Journey,” the story that
explains how the army veteran ended up in prison in the current print
issue of Port of Harlem.
