Inmate Offers To Donate Bone Marrow To Prosecutor Who Helped Send Him Away For 25 Years

In an unlikely twist, a man who was sentenced to 25 years in prison has offered to donate his bone marrow to the very man who helped to prosecute him when he was a district attorney.


A judge said that he was deeply touched by a man who offered to donate bone marrow to him.
Superior Court Judge Carl Fox, 61, is battling blood cancer and he is searching for a bone marrow donor. So far, no match has been found.

However, he was surprised to receive an offer of help from someone he put in jail. Fox was the district attorney who helped convict 62-year-old Charles Alston.

Alston, who is serving 25 years for armed robbery at the Franklin Correctional Center, sent a letter to Fox with a very generous offer.

In the letter he wrote: “You were the District Attorney during the course of my trial, where I received a 25 year prison sentence. I know you are in need of a matching donor for bone marrow. I may or may not be a match, but I am willing to make the sacrifice if needed.”

Alston said that he is not angry with Fox, as he believes he helped save his life by putting him in jail, where he turned his life around.

Unfortunately, prisoners cannot donate due to increased risk of infectious diseases, but Fox was very appreciative of the gesture.

“I was very touched by it and totally surprised,” Fox said.

Fox said that Alston had “every reason to be angry,” and that means even more given the circumstances of their relationship.

This is truly remarkable and the kind of story that can help restore faith in humanity. Our thoughts and prayers are with Judge Fox and we pray for a speedy recovery.
