As of Friday, 29th July, Randy is now back in Dallas for his evidentiary hearing on 29th August, 2022. A 'pre-hearing' hearing is scheduled to take place tomorrow, 10th August.
Anyone wishing to write to Randy during his time in Dallas can do so at the following address:
Randy E. Halprin #22028134
Dallas County Jail
Sterrett North 2EL56
PO Box 660334
Dallas, TX 75266-0334
Only white paper and envelopes are permitted, and no greetings cards.
UPDATE 9th August: Randy has updated us on the mail situation at Dallas County Jail. Inmates no longer receive 'physical' mail. If you write to someone there, your letter will be scanned and uploaded to the inmate's Jpay account, and they can read it there.
You must also ensure that if you do send physical mail, you can only write on one side of the page.
Please note that the jail no longer accepts physical books, as they have the tablet program in place.
Randy now has access to a JPay tablet for the duration of his stay. Please visit Securus' website to read about e-messaging.
Please note that The Friends of Randy E. Halprin are the official voice and advocates for Randy, and any information we are permitted to share will be accurate and posted here (and/or via our social media accounts) only with the express permission of Randy's legal team.
We thank you all for our continuing kindness and support.

Welcome to our website where we aim to share Randy's life, work, goals, and ambitions, as well as providing information on the death penalty and how it's applied in Texas. We would like to point out that this not a 'fan site' and all posts are made by Randy's girlfriend and close friends. We regularly receive messages of support, and would like to thank everyone for their help and kindness.
Those of you who have followed Randy and ourselves over the years (particularly since he was issued an execution date of 10th October, which was thankfully stayed on 4th October) will already be fully aware of where Randy's case stands at present. For those visiting the site for the first time, please take a moment to read up on Randy's case in our Randy's Case tab.
Under our Welcome tab, you will find information on who we are, a slideshow of pictures from Randy's chilldhood, and a list of external links to various organisations with whom you can get involved in the fight against the death penalty.
You will also find Randy's original writings under Journals, Memoirs, and Poems/Lyrics. We are working with Randy on a number of other writing projects, and hope you will continue to visit the website for all updates etc. We also post on Randy's work under our Achievements tab.
As well as sharing Randy's life and his writings, our intention is for you to leave this site with a clearer understanding of the death penalty and how it's applied. This website contains a wealth of information on death row, and our Life On Death Row tab contains a picture tour, a description of the inhumane conditions on the Unit, and some writings from other death row inmates.
We realise that many of our visitors will come to this website cynically, or perhaps condemingly, but before you leave, please ask yourself this question: Are any of us exactly the same person we were 20 years ago?
We thank you for taking the time to read about Randy, and his life.
The Friends of Randy E. Halprin
