John has been released

John is out of jail.

Thanks to everyone who wrote John in jail. The letters helped keep his spirits up. He heard from folks all over the country and from as far away as Australia!

So, he's out of jail but not out of the clenches of the system yet: he still has 12,000 in restitution to pay and very strict conditions of release.
