I was charged with first-degree murder and was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. I was 27 when I got locked up. All this happened when I found my wife with her boyfriend. I wish that day would never have happened.

I would not be here if I had never come home that night and just stayed at the bar. There is so much I have missed out on: my two kids, ages 9 and 7. I don’t get to see them because my ex-wife saw on the news that I was being charged with First Degree Murder of my new wife. It hurts me to know what I did to be locked up, having nobody to talk to, and no family. It makes me sad.

I want to live and be a good dad to my kids; everyone messes up sometimes, but we must live with what we did and make the best out of it.
