Hi, my name is Anthony J Gelia and I am 21 years old. I am serving a Life sentence without the possibility of parole for murder. I have been locked up since I was 19. I'm from Jackson, Michigan. I'm working on an appeal and studying law. I'm 5'8, 180 pounds, blue eyes, and dirty blonde hair. I used to be a tree climber and did side jobs whenever possible.
I know that what I'm in prison for gives me a rough look but I know I made a mistake, I have a big heart and regret my actions leading me here. My family still supports me, I keep up writing all of them. It's hard for me a lot of days not seeing them and listening to them cry especially the way I've been doing my time. I've been in prison for 6 months & spend all of it in the hole or on loss of privileges. Now I'm in a level five and one of the worst prisons in Michigan. I want to talk to troubled teens and let them know this is the wrong path and there's nothing cool about it, having to watch your back 24/7 is not a fun way of life.
I want to make an impact on young or old, I want to do good this time I'm looking for people to write to me to help me stay positive & help me help others!
(Please be sure to include your full mailing address in your correspondence to me so that I can write you back!)
