Last July, Simmons was sentenced by a Federal judge in Alexandria, Virginia, to 33 months in prison. He was given a later turn in date in September. With credit for his time spent in pre-trial detention, including house arrest, Simmons, according the Federal Bureau of Prisons, has an estimated release date of January 8, 2019. In the Federal system, there is no parole, but there is the ability to reduce your sentence by up to 15% through good behavior.
Simmons is currently serving his time at FCI Schuylkill, a Federal prison in Pennsylvania, north of Harrisburg. According to Wikipedia, one of the high profile inmates at the prison is Betim Kaziu, an Islamic terrorist who is serving a 27 year sentence for conspiracy to murder. Knowing Wayne, for everyone's benefit, I hope the prison officials keep them apart.
It is interesting to note that despite his guilty plea, Wayne is still holding onto his assertion that he really worked for the government. A retired admiral and two generals signed an op-ed to The Washington Times where they asserted that Wayne was wrongly accused. In their piece titled Wayne Simmons and a miscarriage of justice, they stated that they looked through Wayne's “Operations Files” and that they proved that he was really an undercover agent. Strangely they argued that "the judge was denied" this "relevant information", even though Wayne himself could have provided it to the court at sentencing.
I reached out to Wayne via text message before he went to prison. In his texts he stated, among other things, that, "
Wayne also asked for help getting the above linked op-ed published. I directed him to a local paper, although they decided not to publish it. When The Washington Times published the article, Wayne texted me the link. I wrote back and asked him why he didn't put his files online for people to see. He responded, "
1. During the summer, I was contacted by a sitting Anne Arundel County Circuit Court judge who decades ago had worked as an Assistant State's Attorney also in Anne Arundel County. He was recounting to me how he was supervising the prosecution of Wayne back in the late 80s for drunk driving. In this particular case, Wayne was found asleep at the wheel of his parked car. It was a hung jury and the case eventually settled. There was a question as to whether or not he could be convicted of DUI because he wasn't driving. This judge indicated that during breaks in the trial that he spoke to with Wayne and still remembered him. He said Wayne said nothing about being in the CIA. He did mention his previous time, albeit brief, in the NFL in the late 70s and commented on the alleged steroid use by many of the players back then. People are always reaching out to me with Wayne stories.
2. With Wayne safely in prison, I was curious about his house. According to Federal prosecutors, he stopped paying his mortgage, on his multi-million dollar home, in 2009. He was also not paying his taxes. I don't know how he pulled this off, but Wayne was able to live in his home until he went to prison. The rest of us must be idiots for paying our bills.
The property is located at 1828 Woods Road in Annapolis. This is in an exclusive private area of town.
The first thing that you see upon driving in is a sign that states, "Warning Private Drive. Area Patrolled by Rottweilers."
Other signs on the fence noted that visual surveillance was being used to protect the property. As you can see, Wayne had a pretty nice house. When he gets out, Wayne should give lectures on how to succeed without paying your bills.
