"Dear Ms. Cooper,
Good day to you and i hope you are in the best of health and the highest of spirits, but I am not.
"Ms Cooper as you know i am in jail on numerous charges and i'd like to tell you that i am an innocent man who needs your help because i'm being painted as this evil 'D.J. by day, don by night' murderer who is society's number one cause of crime and violence. The police is using the media to slaughter me and as such i don't think i will get a fair trial. They are using the media to form public opinion of me that is so contradictory to the person that I really am. They (police) have tried my case in the public & found me guilty.
"Every single piece of alleged evidence, every new development in the case is thrown on t.v. as if this is a soap opera, but i can assure you that this is no movie to me. This is about my life and my freedom and i take them very seriously.
"My charges are merely allegations, but they are giving the public the impression that i am guilty and that is not fair to me or my family.
"I have been to court on numerous occasions and saw hundreds of accused men who are charged with heinous crimes like murdering children, killing police officers, burning & shooting whole families and i have never once saw police on t.v. discussing the development of those cases, much less every week, as in my case."
