When the judge gave me a life sentence, I had to ask myself was I ever going home again? I was found guilty of six counts of crack cocaine distribution. It was a non-violent offence, but because of prior offenses and the sentencing guidelines, I got life without parole. I was 22 years old when I went to jail, but I was really a boy.
I came from a two-parent middle-class household. My mother was a schoolteacher and my father worked for Marriott hotels. But I became a product of my friends’ environment. I wanted nice things clothes, jewelry, a nice car, I started selling narcotics. Not long before my arrest, I noticed unmarked cars following me. It was 3 AM when I heard a loud banging at the door. I saw the badges through the peephole, and everything came together.

In Jail I was in a crazy environment. If you put your food in a locker, the mice would get it before you could eat. There were people who screamed at themselves. I began to take classes. Then I began to teach classes on anger management and empowerment. I founded a group that provided job skills to inmates.
My mother had been an elementary schoolteacher. I found my own ability to teach and it helped transform my life. When she died in 2007, she was proud I had found my calling, regardless of where I was. In 2010 I filed for clemency, but I’d lost hope in the system. I’d been in for 15 years and several motions had been denied. While in prison, my mother, my father, my brother, and my grandmother all died. My daughter was also born. In many ways, we grew up together. In prison I watched movies and started to dream about doing simple things other people take for granted, like walking on the beach, feeding ducks, and having lunch in the park.
In 2015, my lawyer called and told me President Obama had commuted my sentence. I was shocked. I’ve only been out a short while, and everything is in 3-D to me. I’m still learning how to use a smartphone. It’s smarter than me. When I went in, cell phones were the size of thirty-five millimeter cameras. Today I help former inmates transition to life outside prison. I also mentor juveniles. I try to set an example like I did on the inside.

You know, there’s a time when fruit is ripe and at its best. But we all know the next stage is the fruit getting rotten. And what happens is that if you leave people for too long, the can become rotten. When you lest us rot away, society loses out on the gifts we have to give the community and the world.
THIS IS TRUE STORY.
