Osime Brown is 21 years old, he is profoundly autistic and developmentally younger than his peers. Osime is also learning disabled, dyslexic and due to his time in care has since been diagnosed with PTSD, and suffers with depression.
Osime was jailed in 2018 over the theft of a phone in a street robbery, despite a witness for the defence stating Osime had not taken the phone and had in fact asked the other teens carrying out the robbery to stop.
Since being in prison he has developed a heart condition, he has had an operation to put in a loop recordording device to monitor it.
Osime is extremely stressed and is suffering meltdowns, he is self injuring and extremely worried about the possible deportation to Jamaica, a country he left at age 4. He has no family network there and is vulnerable to negative influences, peer pressure and bullying.
Osime has asked his mother, Joan Fairclough, which road he would take to walk to see her if he is sent there. She lives in Dudley, Birmingham.
We ask that you do not send Osime back, that you allow him to stay in the UK upon his release where he can get support and assisted living.
Osime was in 28 care home placements, he has been repeatedly failed by the social care and education system.
Please do not fail him and his family by sending him to a country he knows nothing of, this could be potentially lethal.
