On February 17th, both my parents, Kelly and Connie Meggs were arrested in relation to the events at the Capitol on January 6th, you can Google their names if you wish to find more to the story(albeit, the mainstream media is lying, evil and deceitful), but I am sure you know who they are. This has left me, my sister, my 10 year old nephew, and my 2 year old niece without our parents and grandparents. We have income less than $10,000 a year combined and have to pay the mortgage, utilities and grocery bills to keep our farm. This money will go towards keeping our land, feeding our animals(horses, goats, donkeys, dogs, etc), keeping food on our table, bills as well as legal fees.. We are a good Christian family, I am active in my church as well as my mother who gave her time to helping those in need at a religious thrift store. My parents are good people who love their country and wanted to support their president, Donald Trump, and did nothing wrong.
Update #18 March 13, 2022
Sorry it has been so long the system was down for a while and I am just getting back to the updates. Epoch Times did an article this week showing the truth about our actions on Jan 6th. Assisting police officers and helping injured, not the prosecution lies about some crazy conspiracy and the rest. We have evidence that proves every single allegation by the prosecution is an outright lie. We look forward to showing the videos and evidence to the world so all those who chose to believe the false stories can be silenced. We stand 100% for this country not against it. Please keep us in thoughts and prayers and as someone constantly reminds me John 8:32
\" and you shall know the truth and the truth will set you free\"
God bless you all!

Update #17 March 12, 2022
Hey guys, sorry for not updating lately. A lot has transpired since the last update. My fathers trial date has been moved again towards the end of the year. February 17th marked one year since my parents wrongful imprisonment started. It has now been over a year without having seen my father. He is still strong, but everyday gets a little bit harder for him as well as they many other men inside those walls of the facility. My mother is still out on her ankle bracelet, but her trial also is being moved down the road as well. Keep praying everyone as God will deliver us from this evil and we will get through this stronger than ever. Thank you for your donations as it is truly the only reason we have been able to keep the property and keep everyone fed! Thank you all! God bless
Update #16 January 17, 2022
Well this week brought new FAKE charges against us. In another attempt to cover the already fake narrative they have spread they put out new charges that could not be further from the truth . The good news is several media sources and prior prosecutors have seen through the smoke screen. please keep the truth out there and let people know we are not what they say we are it is a completely bogus story !Made up of chopped up texts taken completely out of context and lies.
We are not or ever have been against this great Country ! We love America even while we are wrongfully incarcerated for things we did not do. We would never do anything to hurt this country regardless of the party in the Oval Office , disapprove, Okay , but harm it or its great Citizens of any political party in any way NEVER !
A complete pack of lies !
please keep us in your prayers and thank you all for everything you have done to help me and my family !
I thank God for you all , all of the time ! You are all a true blessing for writing us , donating to us , sending Christmas gifts to my grandchildren and telling our story the Truth!
Thank you all !
Update #15 December 25, 2021
I can't believe I am spending Christmas in this God forsaken DC Jail . In solitary confinement suffering for the 11th month for a crime I did not commit given no bail. My right to a speedy trial (70 days in federal court) waived for months on end.
On a night when I would normally be looking out across our little hometown square with trees adorned with lights and bows , horse drawn carriages and a candlelight church service. Our whole family goes to the best restaurant in town and sits on the patio to take in the sights , but tonight here alone I sit . Cold concrete and steel are my only companions , loneliness my dinner. Merry Christmas America
Update #14 December 19, 2021
The fact that I am still here after almost 11 months is absolutely disgusting ! I am supposed to be innocent until proven guilty ( in our case fully innocent and the prosecution knows it ) This week exposed more racially and political hate spewing tweets from the Warden here at the DC Goulag ! MTG has her tweets copied and on full display ! Pretrial detention is supposed to be as close to home confinement as possible , otherwise it is considered punishment !
3 straight days now of lock down in our 6x10 cells solitary confinement, no showers, one 10 minute call. The use of punishment instead of detention prior to trial is ,well documented , immediate release from custody. our attorneys need to all get this done asap! I have been denied access to my attorney upon request, I have had the law library disabled on my tablet , I have had personal mail removed from my cell by a lieutenant , and I have been held on solitary confinement as a pretrial detainee all further violating my civil and human rights ( this is just this week alone ) . I have not seen my wife,children or grandchildren in over 10 mths even on video! I have not had access to religious services, a hair cut or shave , and now day 3 no shower!
What country is this ?? This is a complete destruction of my rights as an American and I need everyone to call your congressman and demand our release !! Sorry for the negative update but this has been a week from hell! Please keep us in your prayers!
Update #13 December 2, 2021
weekly update Not a lot of new news this week. It was the Thanksgiving weekend . Even though I sat a great distance away from my family this year I did have time to reflect on how great of a life God has blesses me with! These are not the best days of it but overall it has been a true blessing over and over again. A beautiful loving wife of 23 years , 2 awesome and healthy kids and 2 beautiful grandkids with another on the way. Yes it was almost impossible to even be thankful for anything as I sat in my cell . But then it struck me that in the worst time in my life , I still had so much to be Thankful for. I have lead a truly blessed life and for the most part have not spent enough time being thankful for it . I spent this weekend counting my blessing including all of you whom have stepped up to help a total stranger because God put us in your heart. I said it once and I will say it a lot more that I thank all of you for being a blessing to my family! You are the only reason my family has a roof over its head as they lay down tonight and for that I owe you so much! I can never repay the love you have shown but rest assured I will do all I can to pay it forward as soon as God finishes his plan for me in this jail! Please keep us in your prayers, pray for the Judges to see the truth and the prosecutors to remove the false claims and let the truth be known! I again thank you and God Bless you all!
Update #12 November 7, 2021
weekly update 11\7 Marjorie Taylor Green , Louie Gohmert and a few other House members came into our unit to check on us . I suppose we are used to the conditions we live in , Rep. Green said it was like a POW camp in here and she and the others sang the anthem with us at 9 pm. They did not have a dry eye among them ,it meant a lot to us. I gave her a flag we had used in the Anthem they are hand drawn because they will not let us have flags in here . The day after they came in they condemned 14 cells in our unit for mold and broken items. I was moved temporarily while they fix a broken sink that I had learned to just live with. She was all over the news Friday and Saturday and has vowed to push us through til the end. They also said they would return and visit again. We lost one of our guys this week also Rob Morss when he complained they moved him out without noticed to another facility. He will be missed we all hope God protects him !! Again thank you all for everything ! God Bless you !
Update #11 November 4, 2021
weekly update 10\31\2021 Happy Halloween from C2B ( our unit #) A very tough day today as I do not get to see my family on yet another Holiday. Not the biggest of Holidays but I do enjoy seeing the kids and grandkids dressed up. This week was one of my worst mentally I suppose from the holidays staring us all in the face ! I moss my family more and more each day and just want to be home during this process ! I am praying for a miracle and continue to thank God for you all daily ! Thank you all for your help and keep us in your prayers ! God Bless us all
Update #10 October 18, 2021
WEEKLY UPDATE 10/16. Another week and another status hearing. Nothings changed. We should all pray for truth and honesty. It is hard to face the reality of the holidays without our families but as Thanksgiving and Christmas approach it becomes more and more obvious that our hearts will be heavy this year through the holidays. It could be worst as we have all lost friends and loved ones and missed them through the holidays but making it through the holidays in here is almost impossible to imagine. It is quickly becoming real that this injustice is going to cost me the rest of this year without my family barring a miracle which I know the Lord can provide ! Our thoughts and prayers are with each of you for your support and I will continue to update everything I can. Thank you all for everything you have done ! May God Bless you all and please keep praying for the miracle !
Update #9 September 28, 2021
weekly update 9\28 Again a slow week for most of us still locked up in DC , 3 attempts for bond this week for everyone , all declined . Trial dates continually being pushed back. Another 30 or 60 days without our wives or children, another 30 or 60 days of food lacking nutrition, poor treatment by guards, sleeping on steel bunks with little cushion not waking ever without your body being numb, and the cold reality of steel doors and concrete walls. We dream of home and holding our children only to wake up again in this never ending nightmare. Everyday brings new evidence of our innocence. The story keeps unfolding slowly but how long until the truth and justice are proclaimed ! God knows the truth and our prayers daily are that the truth come out fully , we thank him daily as it unfolds but it is hard to sit while it takes so long to evolve. I am reminded of Proverbs 19:21 " Many are the plans in a persons heart but it is gods purpose that prevails" He has a plan and we all have to trust him. Again I am thankful for all you have done for me and my family ! God Bless you all!
Update #8 September 14, 2021
weekly update : This week brought us out to court supposedly , we were scheduled for a zoom call but the jail could not do it, so we got woken up at 5 am taken down to a holding cell until 8 am . Then transported in a dog catcher style vehicle over to the courthouse arriving at 9am. We were put into dungeon style holding cells under the courthouse until 2pm when we were taken to court ! But it wasn't even to court it was a zoom call???? the worst part is we are now placed back into a stricter lock down due to the fact we left the jail. Several articles have been posted about our hearing which are even being covered by larger media outlets and now our trials may be pushed back even further. I continue to worry about my family, not being able to provide as I always have gives me my biggest burden so all of you helping is appreciated more than you will ever know. The letters from across the country continue to lift our spirits when they come so of your writing us please keep it up. I miss my wife, kids and grandkids!! Thank you all! God Bless!
Update #7 August 31, 2021
My fathers weekly update:
weekly update. Tough week with little progress, But that's okay we know the truth will come out and we will be fine! We have began a bible study in here and it has been growing regularly with several knew members getting into the bible for the first time. God uses us in mysterious ways and I feel that God is using this time to help those of us believe reengage and rededicate ourselves to him. At the same time bring a few new people to him. We all are struggling away from our families and when we come together it gets us refocused that God has a plan and is in control. This will be over when he is ready not us. We just have to have the faith that he is guiding us and holding our hand as we walk through the fire. I thank everyone who is helping us and I hope one day I can personally call all of you and thank you for what you have done for me and my family. please keep singing the National Anthem each night at 9pm EST with us, it really helps knowing we have people who support us out there and we never miss a night ! They say someone recorded it and it has been played on radio or TV etc... though I cannot confirm where . Again thank you all and God Bless all of you !
Update #6 August 15, 2021
My Fathers weekly update : again thank you all for all your support it is truly a blessing and is keeping my family a float ! I can never express the gratitude I have for your kindness and generosity. The lack of amount of evidence is truly jeopardizing the trial dates as they are scheduled probably pushing most into late next year. The judges have not been happy about this and have started setting harder deadlines which may or may not help us. I obviously haven't seen them from my cell but that is what we are hearing in here! We just want the truth to come out and let our juries do their job and decide ! Thank you all again and God Bless is all. Kelly Meggs inmate #376780
Update #5 August 7, 2021
My dad has given me a message for you all!
I wanted to thank everyone who has contributed to helping us keep our farm and prayers to keep my family strong through these times. I am writing you from the DC Guantanamo as they call it still being held in solitary confinement with no end in sight. I have not seen my wife , children or grandchildren in 6 months which is the absolute worst thing imaginable. They say that hardships make you stronger and the only thing that has gotten stronger is my faith that God will bring out the truth and bless my family bringing us all back together again ! Those of us detained here in DC Guantanamo sing the National Anthem every night at 9 pm from behind our cell doors and have been told others across the country are turning on their outside lights and doing this with us at 9 pm which truly has lifted our spirits as we sit without bonds although 90% of us have absolutely no criminal history ! Please keep us in your prayers , sing with us each night and write us if you can through the Patriot Mail Project which has all address and inmate info. Thank you all for your support it has truly been a blessing from God! I just want to hold my wife and kids again soon! Thank you Kelly Meggs \ inmate #376780
Update #4 August 6, 2021
Thank you guys all again! My father and mother are so happy to see that there are so many people supporting us still. My father has requested that I send him every positive comment we receive so I am going to start that today! Please leave a note on your donation and I will send it to him! God bless!
Update #3 August 5, 2021
Hey guys, sorry about waiting so long for an update. My father is still being held in solitary confinement conditions in Washington DC for over 6 months now. Any donation will help as we continue to pay our bills during this uncertain time. Thank you all so much and God Bless!
Update #2 March 27, 2021
Thank you all again for everything. As you may have seen, my mother was granted pretrial release and is back home with us. God has been amazing with all the blessings He has given us in this dark time. Keep praying for us!
Update #1 March 17, 2021
Thank you all so much! I never thought this would happen. I am in such disbelief right now. God is good, as soon as the article was published I proceeded to go to my church and I thanked God for everything He has done for me. My mother began crying tears of joy when I told her what was happening, and I haven't been able to speak to my dad since the article was first published but I imagine the same will happen from him. We all felt so alone, that the world hated our family because of how the news was treating us, but this has given us so much hope and faith in humanity. Thank you all and may God bless all of you!
