Darrick U. Hall


My name is Darrick U. Hall and I am 47 years old; I am Jewish; I was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; I have been incarcerated for 25 years; I have been serving a Death By Incarceration sentence since March 9, 2018, before then I was housed in solitary confinement for more than 24 years as a Death Row inmate; I am a father of two daughters, my youngest is a school teacher, and my eldest is a psychotherapist for autistic children and their families.

My Family:


“Stolen Memories”

When we were transferred from SCI Graterford to SCI Phoenix some of my photos were thrown out/misplaced/destroyed by the DOC Staff. Among those items was my father’s obituary bookmark which was a laminated keepsake. The DOC gave me exactly $20 for it. After my property was violated and then I was thoroughly insulted with $20 as compensation for something that had so much sentimental value, I decided that I was not going to allow that to happen again. I decided that I would rather not have anything near and dear to my heart in my possession again. So, I arranged to have ALL of my photos, obituaries and other sentimental items mailed out and stored somewhere safe. As directed by the Property Room Supervisor, Sgt. Curran, I delivered a Record Center Box containing over 2000 photos, obituaries and other sentimental items to the Property Room. I submitted a completed cash slip as instructed for the cost of First Class US Postage. I was charged $13.50 for this service. Yet somehow the staff at SCI Phoenix managed to lose my Record Center Box; failed to procure a tracking number for me; and managed to charge me for a service that was not rendered. My remaining memories were thrown out again. What will be the price SCI Phoenix put on an entire Record Center Box of Stolen Memories???
