I can say things do change if you believe they will.

Leroy, 42
Incarcerated: 1 year – awaiting trial – facing life in prison
Housed: Her Majesty’s Prison Leicester, United Kingdom

I have been in and out of prison for the last 21 years. All my life, things happen to me. I try not to think about it a lot in order to put them in the past. In 2019, I lost someone close and special to me, my Nan, she was a church vicar. She changed my life by giving me a large sum of money. I have two children that play a big part in my life. I read the Bible every day and God plays a big part in my life. Over the last few months, I have started to review things in my life and I am starting to change, for the better. I can say things do change if you believe they will.
