Jarvis Goes on a Hunger Strike
To bring public and judicial attention to his case, Jarvis began a hunger strike just after Thanksgiving 2017. He was hospitalized on December 19, 2017 and released from the hospital on December 23rd.
Upon returning to San Quentin, he resumed the strike and was hospitalized again on January 10, 2018. After losing more than sixty pounds, Jarvis was released on January 18, 2018. Jarvis is exhausted from waiting for exoneration from a crime he did not commit. He does not wish to die in prison.
He has been waiting an unconscionable time for his habeas corpus appeal to be heard and calls our attention to other innocent prisoners on death row, many of whom have already died before their appeals were heard.
