My long sentence in no way reflects my crime, and it definitely is not comparable to my co-defendants who got 40 and 25 years less than I got.

As a result, I'm always hoping someone with the ability to make a change will see the wrong and help me gain a just sentence. You could say I'm trying to make the best of a bad situation.

I'm an Iraqi War veteran who dealt with PTSD with...

What is one thing you can't say "no" to? I can't say no to a good laugh. Fun is much better than serious. This is why my favorite tv show is America's Funniest Videos and the movie is Dumb and Dumber. I do have a more focused side too. I am completing my third college degree, intensely studying the stock market, and nearly complete with my paralegal certification.

In the free-world,...
