For the past five years, Kevin Mitnick has been imprisoned. That means he hasn't been able to do a lot of things we all take for granted. He hasn't seen a movie, listened to a CD, read books and magazines... the list goes on into infinity. Now, Kevin is free, although still facing a huge amount of restrictions. He cannot use a computer, a cellular phone, and many other forms of technology. He isn't even allowed to go on a speaking tour to tell his story, since that would involve "profiting from his crimes."

Coming back after such a long time can be traumatic in itself. In Kevin's case, he's being held on such tight restrictions that many feel the government wants him to make a mistake so he can be sent back to prison. We need to help Kevin become part of the world again so he no longer feels alone and so that he will never go back to confinement.

Kevin now has an address in the real world where he can accept more than just letters. Please take a moment, go to an online store, pick out a CD or a movie that you think Kevin would enjoy, and send it to the address below. If there's anything else you can think of that someone fresh out of a five year prison term would like, please send it. Since he is not allowed cellular phones, prepaid calling cards are also very useful to Kevin right now. Kevin is not asking you to do this - we, his supporters and friends, are. We saw how happy he was to be back with people again and we don't want that sense of community to ever go away. And naturally, your letters are always welcome. (Computers and cellular phones aren't permitted. Also, do not under ANY circumstances send anything with a credit card number that isn't yours.)

Kevin's address:

Kevin Mitnick
2219 East Thousand Oaks Blvd, #432
Thousand Oaks, CA 91362

We will continue to post progress reports until Kevin's three years of supervised release have been successfully completed. Thanks to everyone for the support over the years!
