One of their attorneys shared that "the hearing is a good sign" for Todd and Julie.

“I am asked almost on a daily basis about Todd and how he is doing and what he is focused on and working on while he is in prison. I can tell you, Todd is doing well, his spirits are up, he is focused and determined, and one of his very highest priorities, outside of being reunited with his wife and his children, is to create real, lasting systemic change within the US Justice System and particularly within the American Prison System," Surgent told this outlet exclusively.

"Just three weeks ago, an inmate was inadvertently given insulin and the administration of this medicine rendered them unconscious and they were rushed to the hospital," Surgent revealed. And that's not all. He claimed that FPC Pensacola is denying Muslim inmates their right to practice their religion.

"There are a huge number of inmates that are Muslim that are regularly being denied access and opportunity to participate in their faith-based worship services. The reason for this is striking, the leadership at FPC Pensacola have decided these inmates should be required to work during their scheduled worship times. So their right to practice their freedom of expression and religion is being denied so that they can provide free labor to the camp and the BOP," Todd's lawyer stated.
