Hi here are all the answers of frequently asked questions.

Oshan Anand was convicted guilty for distributing psychedelics at a 2nd jury trial on Nov. 1st, 2012. He was sentenced to 12 years & 7 months in federal prison, with no rights to parole. We hope that Oshan's conviction will be overturned on appeal due to legal flaws in the trial process. We are raising money to pay for legal fees for his appeal.

-Oshan will be writing an open letter soon to give you an update about his current situation.

-Visits
For at least the next year, Oshan will be staying at FCI Englewood in Littleton, Colorado, just outside of Denver (http://www.bop.gov/locations/institutions/eng/) If you want to visit, send me a personal FB message and I'll send you the application instructions and regulations. Once you mail the application form in to the prison, the approval process usually takes under 3 days but could potentially take up to 3 weeks."

-Communication
