Lasean is bettering himself and growing as a man. Everything is going good with court and his return to the world shall come soon. Be on the lookout for his music once he’s returned into the world. Greatness is nearing. Impossible is inevitability. Inevitability is nothing. Nothing is impossible. Winning is your own passion and ambition. Ambition is that fire inside you that makes you go hard to achieve – success. Success is the goal. Let your goal in life be success!!!
There's nothing special about me. I'm just an ordinary guy who happened to make a mistake. Now, since I've been in here, I've learned to better myself everyday by participating in programs and in groups, as well as working on my Bachelor’s degree.
But, most of all, I have been really mainly focusing and working on reestablishing my relationship with my beautiful daughter. Being a friend to her first, and then a father.
If you are interested in getting to know a corky guy with a great sense of humor that will make you laugh with every letter and conversation, as well as honest, and respectful, Hey, I'm your guy. You could also contact or reach me through Jpay.
Thank you for your time and patience.
It’s not an easy task getting up from a place that you’ve been in for so long. Having determination will reflect on how you deal with those hardships. Complaining about change doesn’t bring growth into your life, it only creates a stumbling block in the path you choose to walk on. One of the GREATEST gifts we possess is the gift of CHOICE. Being able to choose which direction we plan to go in life. I like to compare life’s circumstances as being in the jungle (The Unknown). The way our circumstances are responded to tells us what steps we should take next. When one understands that the great things of the world and of life consist of a combination of Small things and that without this aggregation of Small things, the great things would be nonexistent. Then you begin to pay careful attention to those things which you formerly regarded as insignificant. When we speak words we profess action, planting seeds that will blossom eventually,
Beauty? Power? Success is in detail. Wisdom is not being able to think, but it’s being able to control your thinking. Men who are gifted bear the responsibility of the weight. Success, we are forefronted. Failure, we are the face of shame. Examine self and calculate every possible problem. As you embrace your strength, you strengthen your growth. Our actions TODAY derive from how we think TODAY. Aren’t your THOUGHTS CALCULATED?

As I contemplate retaining my freedom into society, victoriously acknowledging and sensing everyone out-there is waiting for me, feeling happy for me.
It’s at this moment that I’m thankful to be blessed in many different manners, first by having an organized support system that functions like army of ants and bees assisting me in what’s necessary (as researchers, investigators, secretaries etc.) enabling my situation to become a success and making me experience content and second…to have the courtroom full of family and friends for the judge to see I’m still loved and cared about out in society, makes me feel empowered and loved; and third…for all the e-mails, pictures in mailbox, money for commissary, visitations, all that answer phone calls…I’m fortunate and appreciative to the moon and back. I’m lucky because there’s many prisoners that don’t have anybody and I put myself in their shoes and feel remorse and sadness, wondering what if it was me?
I observe as prisoners don’t receive mail, commissary, you know…when gym shoes are tore up looking like dogs barking help-me…it’s not no joke and saddens me. I therefore utilize this point of my experience to point out how blessed I am to have all you there. I won’t forget when I’m out there and become a millionaire, I’ll repay and return the favors bringing you with me to travel the world, enjoy life and live comfortably. Thank you for being so wonderful.

I don’t really know what this is supposed to be about and so I’ll talk about something incredibly controversial, the Donald, Donald Trump. Ok, so is it weird that I enjoy the fact that he’s outspoken? I feel like everyone is so tied up in being a political tool – including just like the run of the mill person. It’s blatantly refreshing to have a leader who’s nonconforming and just gets things done. Like all the pontificating is just unnecessary…
I could be emphatically mistaken, just an opinion. Discuss y’all…!!

Finally, the good Lord has answered the millions of prayers from my family and friends and myself and my dedicated, hard efforts have paid off, as I’ve received the attention of a very large, reputable Law Firm that has recently (July 2019) accepted my wrongful conviction case for investigations on a pro-bono basis (without costs). This Law Firm has been looking at and considering my case for months prior to their recent decision. This Law Firm has 5 office locations in the United States and 8 locations in 8 different countries. For the first time during this injustice nightmare, I feel confident that I’ll soon be on the path of Truth and Justice and my actual innocence will be proven.
Being an innocent man is the worst experience that I’ve ever experienced in life. My 2 children and my precious granddaughter have been affected by this injustice. I’m praying that the TRUTH will send me home so I can be a father to my children who are now grown, and a grandfather to my little granddaughter. God is great and I give all the credit to Him for this GREAT news that will put the wheels of TRUTH and JUSTICE on the path that will take me home.

Thank you. Hope to hear from you.
Let me remind you that we all hold the code to decipher every situation. We contain in our hearts and minds that transforming and generative power to make oneself whole and what you will.
As I sit here on death row waiting on the unknown, I finally mastered the power to mold and make. So, I no longer do the things I desire in life, I spend my time doing what I'm passionate about, what drives me and what I love. This death row experience made me discover my mission, my purpose and my passion in life. I am dreaming of success, of my fulfillment, and what I can fulfill in you as my friend. However, I have realized that my dreams cannot come true without the world (you) on my side.
So I come to you in words, so you can come to me in person, for my incarceration limits me profoundly. However, you are free and therefore I can be free through you, achieve things through you and accomplish my dreams through you or with you. for the supreme good you can do for me or my fellow prisoners is to enlighten us with your light, your meaning, with your sincere friendship and support in advancing our cause and education. One of the greatest good of humanity is to enjoy everything you are with one of us condemned prisoners, and thus make a difference in our lives, as we surely can and will try to make a difference in your life.
My dear world, don't forget us, but rather forgive us, for we are not beyond remedy. Matter fact, we strive for goodness, we have the will to change and become transformed to something good and useful.
I was incarcerated in 2017. It was that day I decided I wanted to be in the best shape and frame of mind mentally and physically when I am released; never looking back at the bad choices I made. I have two years left until my release. I believe to reach these goals I must be both mentally and physically fit. I strive to remain on a strict diet and have a dedicated workout routine.
The diet that works best for me is a fasting type diet where I only eat four hours out of the day, starting after my workout and ending after I eat dinner. I eat as much protein as possible, limit my carb intake, and drink lots of water. The physical part of my routine involves heavy weights or weight lifting six days a week, with cardio every other day to help burn extra calories. I like to focus on one body part a day (arms, legs, chest, back, shoulders, and then legs again) followed by a day’s rest.
After mentally committing to this routine, I have shown great results. When I first came to Orofino I weighed 170 lbs.; my current weight is 203 lbs and my body fat percentage is at 11%. I have not yet reached my goals, but I have come a long way.
If you ever have any questions regarding fitness, both mentally and physically, I am willing to give you the advice I have learned over the years.
Try it, you will like it. Fact! I’m 5’10”, 180 pounds, I’m attractive… I know this. #prisonbody #lookimlockedup.
I want a pen-pal. I crave human contact. If you were in my shoes, you would also. When was the last time you were able to open your mind to someone?

Have you seen Orange is the New Black? That’s my life right now. I want to talk to a real person.
For whatever reason you wound up on here today, lucky me! Lucky you also cause I’m awesome. You know what I need, what do you need? They call me Tony. Hit me up. I’ll lit you back. You know that little grin you have right now? Look back at my pic, we’re both smiling. Happiness is hard to come by, we bot know that. Send some my way. I’ll send it back.
Not if, but when you JPay me, please send me your address in the body of the letter so I can write you back. I’m not cocky, I just know who I am and what I want.
