On December 2, 2012 Cody Lee Sutherlin will turn twenty-four years old. While we’re all hoping that a plea agreement can be reached between now and then, the bitter reality is that Cody may be spending his birthday in the Cook County Jail. As friends of Cody we will miss the chance to relax, enjoy a beer, and reflect upon years past. Though we think of the sacrifice he’s making everyday, the thought of spending birthdays in jail is particularly painful. That said, the last thing Cody would ever want would be people moping around on his birthday.
We do want to make sure that Cody has as good of a day as is possible. In order that he should hopefully receive it by his birthday, letters and other packages should be sent as soon as possible. PLEASE! If you’ve got an extra fifteen minutes just send Cody a short letter to wish him a happy birthday! It’ll mean a lot to him.
To put a couple extra dollars directly on his commissary fund use Moneygram Bill Pay, which can be found at most drug and grocery stores. Use the code #1750 for Cook County Department of Corrections and send the money to inmate code:
Cody will receive the money instantly and maybe this way he can have a birthday feast of tuna fish and ramen noodles! You can also continue to get money to Cody and the rest of the Tinley Park Five via WePay.
Wanna Send Cody a Birthday Toast?
If you’d like to send a toast Cody’s way for his birthday, take a picture of you and your crew toasting Cody on your phone anytime between now and December 2. Send the funniest, sexiest, sweetest, proudest, drunkest or smartest picture you can come up with for your toast and send it to
with something along the lines of “Happy Birthday Cody” in the subject line. When Cody gets out (hopefully soon), we’ll show him all the photos of his friends and comrades all over the world raising a glass to him. Hopefully this way we can replace a piece of his stolen birthday.
We miss you Cody Lee Sutherlin! Solidarity! Happy Birthday!
