The information on this webpage was received by the CCADP before Arizona prisoners were banned from the internet on July 18, 2000.  The CCADP is refusing to remove any Arizona prisoner materials from the internet until this law has been challenged and defeated, to ensure ALL Arizona death row prisoners are allowed to have their voices heard... Prisoners contacting the CCADP for removal under threats from the DOC receive a copy of the following: CLICK HERE

Another detailed webpage (Since deleted) with information on Michael and his case stated:
"...He killed nobody. This fact is known to the courts.  He is being made into a scapegoat
because the man who pulled the trigger died in a gun battle with the police before he could
be convicted..." - This webpage has since been deleted under threat from Arizona DOC !
Here are some of the other postings from the internet about Michael Correll that existed before the DOC demanded his removal from the internet - This information has been re-posted by the CCADP without the prior knowledge or consent of Michael Correll:

          The bad press on Correll and Arizona prisoners by Michael Correll

Michael Correll  the inmate in Arizona blamed for improper use of the inter net resulting in the
Arizona Law and pain and embarrassment to many of his supporters has asked me to inform you of the true circumstances and would ask that you pass this information on to insure full coverage.
The center of this is an article by Robert Philips from APB on Feb 9, 1999 which was full
of erroneous information.  -  A friend of Michael Correll

MICHAEL’S  case is still in the courts and he could very well be proven innocent.
The nicknames given him by the press  i.e. Casanova and Fabio are creations of the over zealous press. Never has Michael approved of these.  In fact he is a very private person and was hurt by the comparisons.

This article was an attempt to deal with bad publicity the state has received from the world for it’s many cartoon attempts to force prison issues and their bazaar view on criminal punishment.  They had at one time a direct link to ABP from the prison web site.  If Michael is named executor to an $800,000 estate legal or illegally earned -it’s news to him.  Attempts have been made to verify that and at this point there is no evidence of this.  But it  was a quoted statement in the original article made by Phelps.  This is centered around a 1995 execution and Michael should have been informed by now if that were the case.
Michael is particularly angered at the quote about pink elephants as he in fact has never met Phelps and had he, that fact would  have been  in prison records.

The idea that he was the center of a shrine is a matter of opinion and in fact a personal right…..and in all probability an exaggeration used by investigators.  Most “religious” or even just family would do the same.  This could be seen as a cruel mockery of a person’s personal and religious life.
Recent investigation has proven that the $12,000 fund mentioned was never a reality as far as being in a defense fund because of manipulation by investigators  rather than Michael.

Pen pals are usually aware of the game and intend themselves to write to as many others as they can. Signing a letter with I love you or what ever is hardly strange in a pen pal relationship.

Arizona Republic newspaper has articles that seem to show this state is out to execute Michael Correll NOW ...…no one wants an innocent man that has spent 17 years in lock down to tell his story….especially when there maybe plea bargaining…states evidence…..police whatever ……involved.  I’m not saying that is or isn’t Michael’s case.   But you may learn that is .
Michael refused an interview……If this is an example of what they would have written wouldn’t  you deny one as well?

Don’t let this happen -pass this article along.  Understand…

Thank you for your time
 A friend of Michael Correll

                        Mike's Pen Pal Request

 Hello, my name is Mike and I have been on Death Row  in Arizona since 1984. I was wrongly convicted of murder on the  evidence of one man who was drunk and high on drugs, and testified that I was involved in a robbery in which three people were killed and  another wounded.    I was brought here when I was 24 years old and can barely remember what it feels like to be free.  I haven't seen stars or a sunset (things most people take for granted, or simply ignore) in all that  time.
Sometimes I wonder if things like that even exist anymore.  This  life is a very hard and lonely one and I seek anyone's help, anyone's caring, and anyone's support.  Because I am sentenced to death,  I'm kept locked in my cell and only allowed out for three hours a week to exercise and shower.  I can have no physical contact with others and  cannot work to earn money for stamps, store, etc.  They make the situation as hard as possible to survive.  Please write if you have a sincere and caring heart and wish to bring the light of day into my life.  I like drawing, most kinds of music, Harley Davidsons, reading books.   I love all animals and nature.  Please keep in mind that I have no direct access to computers or e-mail.  You may also send mail to my address.  Thank you for caring. I hope to hear from you soon.
