I hope to get out of prison soon.
They have been releasing a lot of lifers.
Our governor has been really generous to many prisoners.
I think he is my best shot in getting my weapons allegiance and great bodily injury charges removed.
If that happens, I could go home.
Lord knows it's been a long time since I was out in the free world.
1990 seems like a lifetime ago.
I know that I have something to include into our free society.
I also know that my past will come back to haunt me, as a convicted sex offender does not get forgiveness from people, not matter how long ago it happened.
I am up to the challenge of fitting back in.
I will do my best to distance myself from any foreseeable trouble while obeying all law enforcement agencies.
I cannot wait until I can participate in things that are considered normal.
Any reader out there who can give me some leads for me in living out the remainder of my life in a productive manner?
I would like to hear from you.
I have a lot of planning to do, and I welcome any help that I can get.
I am also a Christian so I will be active within a local church in the Sacramento area.
Anyone have some addresses for me of churches in the Sacramento area? Hope to hear from you soon.
