Feb-8- 2000

My name is Oswaldo (Soriano) Regaldo, #999096 I am a Death Row Inmate here on the Terrell Unit.

I am in great hopes that perhaps you and your establishment are able to help me in gaining world-wide attention, of the injustice being imposed to me and my case, by being placed on the inter-net and perhaps fixing me up a web site...

Before I go any further let me express my gratitude to all of you in general, for the courage you put forth in helping us Death Row inmates despite the tremendous odds. Know that I am extremely grateful for your time and for any support that you are able to help me with.

Let me tell you a little of myself and case history. My name, (you already know); I'm Mexican/Bilingual, I am 24 years old, born :June 26,  1975. Was born in the city of Chihuahia, Mexico.

I arrived on Death Row, May 6,  1994.

I like to pass my time drawing, writing some poetry, and reading anything of history, mostly all that can give some type of wisdom and knowlegde. My main struggle is trying to learn and study the law, but due to the isolation, I am very limited in learning since there is no physical contact between one another,  (as back on the other Unit ,Ellis). Here it is total isolation and we live in an "lce Box!" the cold air is never turned off, so we are kept in a coma of some sort due to coldness. I mostly like to keep myself in shape by doing all types of exercises, I used to play basketball and handball, but there is no room for that here, since one recreates by oneself. Due to this isolation, I've managed to maintain my sanity and keep my spirits up.

About my case; The alleged murder was committed on November 17,  1992,
I had just turned 17 years old. I was found guilty of capital murder:May 4, 1994 and given a death sentence on the May 5,  1994,  (the very next day).

This alleged murder took place in a store, in Amarillo, Texas, the victim was shot with a 380 caliber pistol.  Being that I was a juvenile at the time of this crime and on juvenile probation, Instead of being automatically picked up and charged with capital murder, I was listed on All-points-bulletin, (with the police department) as a runaway. Which was true. Me and three other juveniles lived at a home to ourselves. All of us were arrested as runways, out of all of us I was charged with capital murder 7 hours later, even though I had nothing to do with this murder, but guilty of being just a runaway.  As you can see the county held me till I was 19 and half years of age before even taking me in front of a jury trial. All this is documented in trial records. I recently went back on a hearing on my case, due to the lack of evidence the state presented to the courts. So, as we speak, my case is still on direct appeal, awaiting the judges response to all the new evidence.

What I so greatly wish is, to find people, women, men of any age that can perhaps assist me in any possible way, whether it be moral support, advice, legal advice and simply just to be a friend and helping me see the outside world. I have never really experienced much of the outside world nor it's beauty. I'd be so appreciative of any response whether you are for or against the death penaly. I will answer all letters. I look forward to hearing from any of you.
 

Thank you for your time, and attention on this matter.
Please send all letters to the address listed below.

Respectfully,
