Dr. Simone Gold, medical freedom champion and foundress of the America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS), issued a short statement from federal prison where she is serving a 60-day jail term for a misdemeanor count of entering the “restricted” grounds of the Capitol building on January 6, 2021.
“I remain in this Miami prison, serving time for a bogus trespassing charge,” began the former emergency room doctor in an email statement to supporters.

Having her computer time limited to 15-minute sessions, Gold first expressed her gratitude for the countless letters of support she has received and for the prayers offered on her behalf by so many.
“Even the prison staff noted the volume of supportive mail. I am both humbled and strengthened. Thank you!” she wrote.
Gold went on to describe how the prison has used COVID-19 as an excuse to impose solitary confinement on all females entering the prison.
“All incoming female inmates are put into a punishment isolation cell under the guise of a ‘quarantine,’” she said. “They told me it wasn’t for punishment, but it was certainly a punishing and inhumane experience.”
“Another form of arbitrary punishment is moving me, along with other inmates, to new cells with no notice. A guard simply yells my name, and I’m expected to move at any moment. My staff knows that if I stop emailing or calling, it’s because they have moved me or possibly put me back into isolation,” Gold wrote.
The highly accomplished graduate of both Chicago Medical School and Stanford University Law School continued, stating, “I’ve noticed activity in the prison that makes me fearful for my own safety.”
On this point, she did not elaborate further, but assured her readers, “My spirits are high. I am more determined than ever to keep fighting for you and medical freedom.”
In addition to the 60-day prison sentence she received in June, Gold also faces 12 months of supervised release and $9,500 in fines, which CNN noted at the time is “the largest fine imposed to date among the almost 200 rioters who have been sentenced.”
