Hey, my name is Eric and I'm currently appealing a life sentence (30 years) for murder.
I was born and raised in Houston, TX. Growing up I had dreams of playing baseball professionally and having a family of my own. After graduating high school I accepted a full scholarship to play baseball at the University of Texas, which is where I met the woman who changed my life forever. She and I clicked almost immediately, fell in love, and got engaged. That summer she was 3 months pregnant when she was killed in a horrible accident.
Needless to say, I was destroyed emotionally and mentally. Physically I wasn't doing much better. I had begun drinking heavily and experimenting with different drugs to help numb the pain I was feeling. I eventually gave up my scholarship and moved back to Houston. It wasn't long before I was involved way over my head, dealing with some shady associates in a drug world I never fully understood. All of which contributed largely to my current situation.
My only request is that you take the time to get to know me before making your own judgment. So many are quick to draw an opinion based on unfounded allegations without knowing the whole story.
If you're interested in writing, I look forward to hearing from you.
