Welcome to My Redshirt Year in Prison!

Thank you for visiting my blog. As you may know, I am new to the blogosphere. I never dreamed that I would be blogging, but of course, I never dreamed I would be accused and convicted of a federal crime either. Obviously, this experience has been rough on me, my family, and my friends. We are determined to turn this very negative occurrence into a positive and enriching one. As such, I have decided to chronicle my experience as I progress through the system. I plan to write about the affects this experience has on my family, lessons learned, my thoughts and feelings, my wife, my toddler, and other things going through my brain that I think may be worth talking about. I also must say that I mean no disrespect to anyone else’s experience. I recognize that I am fortunate, in that I have one year and a day while others are serving much more time. I can only comment on my experience and observations as a guy with no prior criminal history. I hope to reach my family and friends, and at some point others that are going through a similar experience or friendly people that are just curious. That’s all for now. -Prisoner 33778-171

  1. I can’t wait for you to see the antics of your little one exclaiming, Dad, dad, dad, dad, while sitting in a chair swinging both legs one shoe on and one shoe off. The facial expression is indescribably priceless!!!!!! In earlier videos you are very quickly identified along with mama and “me.” Yesterday the birthday party for the granddaughter next door that included Pelican Ice was a delicious success for all of the children and grown children.

  5. Just came across this blog as I was checking up on you. It appears you are around half way there and it looks like you have brought a great attitude to use this time to be a positive versus a negative. I am sorry we were unable to connect, other than text, prior to your court proceedings and subsequent sentencing. Hang in there and stay strong. I know this year will be tough, but you are tough and will prevail.


  6. You’re going to have quite the testimony when you are released Sir. No one is perfect.. we all make mistakes. #restorativejustice
