ABOUT SEAN SWAIN
Sean Swain has been held prisoner by the State of Ohio since 1991 for a provable non-crime, defending his life in his own home from an intruder. He has an honorable discharge from the U.S. Army and an Associate of Arts from Ashland University. He co-wrote ‘Last Act of the Circus Animals,’ published by Little Black Cart and available at sproutdistro.com. He contributes a weekly segment to the globally-syndicated Final Straw radio show, now online on the Channel Zero Network. Sean was tortured by Ohio prison officials for his beliefs in 2012, and has since then been subjected to an ongoing program of retaliation and torment designed to silence his exposure of prison officials’ crimes. This resulted in prison officials’ foiled efforts to have Sean killed, followed by an out-of-state transfer in 2019 to falsely portray Sean as a disciplinary problem and a terrorist to justify denying him parole.
Sean’s book-length manuscript detailing his struggle to survive domestic torture and government efforts to silence his exposure, ‘Opposing Torture,’ is soon to be published. Updates on Sean’s struggle are posted at seanswain.org.
