Liberty activist Adam Kokesh remains behind bars in a D.C. Jail, but has, after two months, been released from solitary confinement. Kokesh spokesman Jeffrey Phillips says the transfer happened this past weekend, with Kokesh moved to the general population of a lower level security wing of the jail.

Kokesh is now allowed to use the phone, a right he had been denied, but visitation remains questionable. Phillips says Kokesh’s mother, who lives in California but traveled to meet her son, was turned away by jail administration.

Kokesh’s team is working to see that change, sending a fax requesting visitation, but have so far received no response. Phone calls to the jail, requesting to speak with Kokesh, have been met with busy signals, a fax machine tone, and hangups.

Meanwhile, Phillips confirms that the Kokesh created “Adam vs the Man” internet program is on hiatus from its usual format, but corresponding content is still being generated.

    He was able to make phone calls before the move to CTF as well.

    His mom, sadly, was turned away because he was in the middle of the move to the lower-security jail. That’s my understanding.

    Not even visitation from his mother. Those are some sick SOBs that don’t deserve to live.

  • Joe

    Aw, poor baby. Maybe the glory grabber shouldn’t do the crime if he is too whiny to do the time.

    • Ed

      What crime has he been found guilty of?
      If defendants are supposed to be considered innocent until proven guilty, the D.C. jail has had an innocent man in solitary confinement for 2 months.

      @joe only because you lack the balls to make change.

  • Alice Lillie

    Good news. I have been praying for him. We all need to do that. Additionally we all need to send $ for his defense.
