Hi, I’m Arturo. I choose WriteAPrisoner.com because they are the greatest. I’m an inmate in a Max Security prison in the State of Illinois where I’m housed amongst the worst of the worst, labeled a bad influence while placed in administrative detention isolated from inmates out in the prison general population, but in all actuality I’m just doing what I have to survive.
I was raised in the Southside of Chicago in a Mexican community called Little Village infested with gang violence where I was misled. I was charged with first degree murder and attempted murder and sentenced to 58 years. I’ve been imprisoned half of my life since the age of 19, but now I’m back in court on post-conviction proceedings to establish my wrongful conviction and regain my freedom. When I came to prison I learned criminal law to help myself in court, rehabilitated myself from the gang life and prepared to be released from prison and live a new life. I dream to meet a woman, travel the world and live happy in laughter.
Meantime I would like to meet a pen pal to be friends with. I’m allowed to send and receive emails from prison, to sign up go to www.connectnetwork.com. I’ll be contacting you immediately. Thank you for choosing to select me.
