“I am sixty one years old. I was 17 years old when I committed the crime. When I was born, dad was not around. I went to juvie maybe three times for not going to school when I was 12 or 13. I stopped going to school in 5th or 6th grade. I went to Okachobee school for boys at 15. My 17th birthday I caught the charge. When I came in I was in confinement for 18 months. They gave us all three years confinement because there was a prison riot at Sumter. You stay in your cell 24/7. You get out for a shower every other day. They give you a sheet of paper that says how to exercise in your cell. That was three years of “close management” solitary.
You can send a picture to me, I have no one else. We’re the walking dead in here. “
