I would give the world for my daughter to know me, and to be able to be her father.
Incarcerated: 11 years
Housed: New Jersey State Prison, Trenton
I have a daughter that I have not seen or heard from since she was six months old. I was there throughout her mother’s pregnancy and for her birth, which I am extremely proud of. I would give the world for my daughter to know me, and to be able to be her father. It’s been almost 13 years because of a falling out between her mother and me. Since I am in prison, I can’t see or talk to my child. I am fighting my case of innocence, to hopefully litigate for myself (pro se) due to the fact that I do not have the financial means for a good attorney (shout out to all the jail-house lawyers and paralegals, much respect, you all give us hope, seriously). I’ve been in and out of religious and mental health programs, trying to better myself and hopefully, one day God will give me another chance at freedom. Thank you for the time and may God bless you all.
