Carey, 40

Meet Carey…

“I was in a bad place a year ago with drugs and depression and now today I am hopeful and I realize that I matter and I’m beautiful. And that I deserve to live a good normal Free life.”

Incarcerated: 8 years

Housed: West Tennessee State Prison

I have spent the majority of my life in prison for forgery and theft of property. Today I have 40 convicted felonies on record. I once had a family but they have all passed. I had six children who are grown and I hope one day to find. I’ve been a drug addict and a fool up until recently.

I am currently in a therapeutic community program and will graduate in April. I’m reestablishing myself, getting to know Carey again and working on goals to get me to where and who I need and deserve to be. I have another parole date in September of 2022,  I am trying to find a place to live, like a halfway house that will meet my needs.

I want to get into prison reform, activism and become an alcohol and drug counselor. I am starting fresh, from scratch and I need a lot of help. I was in a bad place a year ago with drugs and depression and today I am hopeful. I realize that I matter, I’m beautiful and that I deserve to live a good normal free life. 📸
