Dr. Hyatt-Wallace

I was forwarded your e-mail and listed concerns. I have addressed this issue with the jail’s classification unit and have removed Stankovich from all male housing. Stankovich is housed and will remained housed in our pre-classification module. This areas houses both female and male inmates. Stankovich will be kept seperate from other inmates and housed alone during this jail stay. We have booked this individual as Stankovich, William with an, a.k.a. as Stankovich, Kimberly as per the order from Superior Court of Washington, County of Spokane.

  1. This is the Kim Stankovich that is referred to in the e-mail from the Lt. at the Spokane County Jail. He is lying about what the order from Superior Court. It states Kimberly A. Stankovich f.n.a. William Stankovich. I want everyone to know that they came into the lobby and called for Kimberly Stankovich then after entering the booking area they changed my name to William.
    My Washington State drivers licence says Kimberly A. Stankovich and has for over three years. Furthermore, it clearly says my gender is F.
    This system is going to change and I hope that as many people around the world will write and tell this Lt. Gary Delzer, Spokane County Sheriff’s Office, Jail Division-Custody Operations at 1100 W. Mallon Ave. Spokane, WA 99260-0320.
    Tell him that we as a comunity will NEVER SETTLE FOR SECOND CLASS AGAIN!!!! Together we can change this system and can also help others that face this bigotry. I hope to spend the rest of my life advocating for justice through out this country.
    Please excuse my spelling.
    The power is ours to take because it will not be given. Love to all, Kim
