“I’m in prison because I lost my little brother and a good friend of mine in a car accident because I had a couple of drinks. God put me in this place for some reason. I have never gotten in trouble with the law before so this is the first time I’ve been in a situation like this.

“I want to be out of here and helping others avoid the mistake I made because I know I was wrong and I want to help people who are doing the same thing I was doing. Maybe I can stop them and help to save some lives.”
