I was locked up for 2 1/2 years for something I didn't do. They tried to send me away for more then 15 years. I plead guilty so I could take a deal because I was scared. I don't regret it. Its a decision I made to get me to the life I have now. A beautiful family. And ever since then, I appreciate literally everything. My pride didn't get the best of me that day, but I do wonder where I would have been if I would have fought it all the way. I must admit, your strength and stubbornness did get you justice. That's what I needed that back then. Your story reminds me of where I been, and a promise to my daughter, I will never go again! Just don't push me. Aloha bruh!
