For those of you who don’t know me , I want you to hear from me firsthand :
I did not kill anybody.
In VA if you are a participant in a felony and someone dies, you are also responsible for that death, even though we proved in court that I did not kill anybody.
I’ve been in prison for twenty years straight, since I turned eighteen, and even after all that time, I still have people who love me and care about me very much.
A testament to my character. That not just a few family members but also numerous friends and church groups who have seen me grow up and become the man I am today. They realize the change , and tell me they feel like I should be given a second chance.
My son is twenty years old, Tristin. He grew up his entire life knowing me behind bars. He has a metal disability that causes him to be on S.S.I.
I would like a chance to get out there and be his father and help take care of him. Twenty years is a life time.
How many more years must I do before my dept to society is paid ?
Does me being at the scene justify keeping me in prison forever ?
So my only worth is to sit in a prison cell until I die of old age ?
That’s what they want me to do !
I was locked up three months after I turned eighteen. And I’ve been in here ever sense.
