Default Looking for Michael Allen Hamilton in California

I am new to this forum so any help I can get would be much appreciated. I am looking for a CDC number for Michael Allen Hamilton who is a death row inmate at San Quentin Prison. If anyone knows him or knows someone that knows him I would really appreciate his CDC number so I can write him. Than you.

If you have his birthdate you can call the inmate locator @ (916)445-6713. You can also try calling San Quentin and they should be able to give you his CDC and housing info

The telephone number to call is listed in the post above. Searching California Birth records, there are two Michael Allen Hamilton's born in California. I believe the one that you are looking for was born 01-03-1951.

Unfortunately, there are four Michael Hamilton's in the California DOC and it doesn't list what prison they are in.

Here is a link to a recent court filing listing his attorney's names, so perhaps you could call them?

The four CDC numbers for the Michael Hamilton (if this helps):

C58200
F02706
G16176
J35886

Since he has been on death row for so many years, I believe it's probably the C58200 number, but I'm sorry I can't be positive.

The only other suggestion is to write one letter and make copies and send to all four....the bad numbers will be returned to sender.

GOOD LUCK!!!!

Hmm...my DR pen pal does not have double zeros. He's in east block and has been for about 12 years now.

A mid 'C' number would have been issued in the late 70's/early 80's though if that helps.

Michael Allen Hamilton

By Steve E. Swenson, Bakersfield Californian -- The death sentence for a Bakersfield man convicted in the 1981 shotgun slaying of his pregnant wife to cash in on a $100,000 life insurance policy was overturned Friday by a federal appeals court. While the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the first-degree murder conviction for Michael Allen Hamilton, it ruled that the death penalty was invalid because of "exceptionally poor representation" by his trial attorney. A unanimous three-judge panel of the appeals court found that the defense lawyer failed to present evidence of Hamilton's traumatic childhood in an attempt to persuade the jury to reject the death penalty.

yeah some aren't double zeros, but that is the exception not the rule. the double zeros are exclusively death row. At least 90%of inmates on death row have a 00 at the end of their cdc number. A handful do not, at least that was my observation when I worked death row cases under an agency run by the California Supreme Court. I'm not sure why they have a few that aren't double zeros.

They already went through the alphabet of letters too. Just so many people on California's death row.

Hi, I am wondering if you know Michael personally? He is my uncle, and I only today found out that he was re sentenced.

Having been in San Quentin. and even housed in East Block for 8 months, I think I know why some condemned inmates do not have double zero numbers. If they were already in the system and had a number, were on parole when they caught the DR case, then they would have kept their old number, and not been assigned a new double zero number which are exclusively reserved for condemned inmates.
