No one cared about me and the hollowness I felt. No one cared to stop and listen to my story. No one cared because I am an African American woman who was treated unjustly.
Incarcerated: 4 years
Housed: Jean Conservation Camp, Jean, Nevada
I am a veteran who proudly diligently served this country for over five years. I am an African American woman who is unjustly imprisoned for a heinous crime I did not commit. I want you to hear my plea, listen to the tragedy that unfolded in my life and to implore you to hear my story.
When I was medically separated from the Army I went through my own personal trauma but I refused to allow my own pain to conflict with my desire to provide assistance to others. I worked long hours so others could spend time with their families. I helped friends and neighbors financially so they could provide for their children and when I separated from my ex I still try to help provide for my ex and her kids. Despite my own health concerns I gave from my heart to those in need and helped others as much as I could.
My plea of not guilty fell on deaf ears. No one cared about me and the hollowness I felt. No one cared to stop and listen to my story. No one cared because I am an African American woman who was treated unjustly. I was committed to a sentence of 8-20 years although I am appealing my case. My life and the police records are an open book for anyone to read. I want to share my story because this is unfair. There are people in prison who have committed murder and are serving less time. People who sell drugs to children, run from and attack the police, who are serving less time. Yes I have a victim. I have no contact and I pray everyday. I would never put anyone or child through what I have been through. I want to expose a small sliver of the corruption within the Nevada judicial system.
My sincere desire is to share my story with you.
