Pen Pals: Find a friend behind enemy lines

Taking photos of prisoners is prohibited in many prisons, so the few that find their way out are precious. The Bay View thanks longtime subscriber and writer Uhuru Baraka (Brian Lee) Rowe, 1131545, Sussex 2 SP, 24427 Musselwhite Dr., Waverly VA 23891, for sending this one.

Life behind enemy lines can be lonely, and a letter from a friend – a pen pal – can liberate mind and spirit. These prisoners are reaching out to you. They trust that Bay View readers truly care. Reach back and write a letter today!

If you can, light up life for a brother or sister behind the walls by making a donation to the Prisoners’ Subscription Fund. (Click on the DONATE button and specify the Prisoners Subscription Fund.)

My name is Jose Rodriguez and I’m currently incarcerated in Wabash Valley Correctional Facility. I’m 27 years old and have been incarcerated since the age of 17. I enjoy reading, writing, learning, drawing, working out, listening to music, laughing, having a good time, and making new friends. Despite life’s ups and downs, I keep a positive attitude and remain optimistic. We only live once, so I believe it’s important to maximize the opportunities and experiences life has to offer; one of them being that of genuine friendship. I’m open minded and have no specific expectations with this, though I hope to make greater friends, learn, feel, and have fun. I’m also open to sharing my experiences and giving a true perspective on prison life for those who are interested in that kind of thing.

Hello, how are you? My name is Anthony and I have placed myself upon this site as a long shot with hopes and prayers of meeting someone that would like to exchange thoughts, ideas, ambitions and experiences. My question is, are you that someone? To tell you a bit about myself, I’m an African American male with black hair, brown eyes, standing at 5’10. I have a great sense of humor, I’m a romantic at heart and I love to listen and learn what makes people who they are. I love children and have thoughts of being back into speaking to fatherless and at-risk youth about gangs, drugs, and staying in school. My values consist of honesty, love, honor, trust, respect, communication, loyalty, discipline, dedication, and patience. I believe that respect and communication should always be the centerpiece of my association and love and trust is earned. I am very interested in “plus” size women. Also, I’m in search of a pen-pal who would not mind writing and developing a friendship. Someone once said that a stranger is just a friend you have not met. I just want you to know that no topic is taboo either! Mr. Anthony Garrett #N72126, PCC, PO Box 99, A-201, Pontiac, IL 61764

I am a Political Prisoner. Never have I committed a crime. What I did do was document hundreds of crimes from murder down, ordered and committed by people in and out of this state and government, including a well known KKK member and racist corrupt government officials; then tried to expose those crimes. They tried to murder me twice to silence me. When those efforts failed they manufactured fake criminal charges and planted all the evidence. Never will I ask for money or legal work. I am a Political Prisoner, those do no good. All I am asking for is a pen pal or anyone willing to make known to the public the evidence I have showing my innocence. I will provide everything if they will put it on the internet and everything will be directed to me by instruction in the explanation pages for the documents. One person on the outside making noise is all it will take to free me because these KKK/Nazis know I cannot be stopped. Please, help! It will not cost you anything but could set off a revolution in this country. The time for talking is over. It is time to do. The Pledge of Allegiance says Justice for All not just those with money or political pull. If you want real Justice I will cause a seismic shift in that direction with a little help from you. All I ask for is the chance. Many thanks, Michael Crosby #535781, LSP, Jaguar 2L, Angola, LA 70712

Author of “Drug Lords of Oakland: The untold stories of California’s most notorious Drug King Pins of the 1970s, 80s, and 90s” (available on Amazon and Kindle). This is the first of my many planned novels – stay tuned because the lessons of one are many. I’m a 47-year-old Oakland, California native. I was raised during the 1970s, 80s, and 90s when crack was king and there were literally teenage millionaires on the blocks. At the age of 12, I came off the porch to participate in a life of crime. By the age of 14, I was a member of a notorious drug organization in West Oakland. My street career spanned three decades. I have now put the game behind me and embarked on a career as an author.

I’m in prison for 1st degree murder, wrongfully convicted, sentenced to 53 yrs and been locked up for 15 yrs. I been fighting my case hard and strong having faith that my Creator Yahweh would bless my case to get it reversed. On Feb 20, 2018 my murder case (People v. Bobby Ezell 2018ILL App(1st)152237-U No:1-15-2237) was reversed and remanded back to court as the perpetrator who committed this crime confessed in a 2 page affidavit. I’m placing this ad to seek help from someone who has spare time as I desperately need some mail, short phone calls and maybe some things printed off the internet. It will take only a little effort to gain my release. Bobby Ezell #R65015, PCC, 5835 State Route 154, Pinckneyville, IL 62274

I’ve finally gotten myself together. Living in a world full of problems – but allowing my problems to manifest vices that eventually led me here, I took charge of my visions. See, I “WAS” a dreamer. I’m multi-talented; I can play 8 instruments, I sing remarkably and I’m an inventor with 30 lucrative concepts – 11 drafted (so far) plus one in production. I recently discovered a talent for writing and I’m currently wrapping up a book called “The Black Saga Series”. It’s a compilation of short stories. Three books, Romance, Lust, & Drama. Each book will feature these three themes. Naturally, I’ve made amends with my talents (in prison) and produced million dollar entities branded under my umbrella. With focus & hard work, I’ll be worth billions. Being 6 foot 4 inches (barefoot) and very handsome with a sense of humor and poise of a saint, I’ve never had problems with the “ladies”. I’m only intolerant of wretched, disrespectful, angry, uneducated women with no mannerism or understanding of how the Kingdom of God works. I’m a praying man. Long gone are days when I ran the streets trying to get paid, or high or basically laid. Thank God, I’m now drug and disease free, focused and ready for one “virtuous” woman. I NEED a wife. Therefore, I’m only looking for friends right now. If something progresses, understand where it ends, marriage. I love my sisters. Oh how I’d love to marry, date, court, or befriend a beautiful black woman, but I’m open to everyone (no homo, no offense). Business partners, angel investors or investors are welcome. Renzy Stone #1926843, O.L. Luther Unit, B-6-42, 1800 Luther Drive, Navasota, TX 77868

Rabid prisoner’s rights activist seeks help. As a prisoner, I have networked with many other like-minded prisoners who want and plan to advocate for and help prisoners upon release. The ravages of post-incarceral life invariably interferes. What prisoners, ex-prisoners, and their friends and family need are tools that strengthen bonds and empower, that shine a light on the misdeeds of prison authorities, and that are provided by a self-sustaining infrastructure. I have education and experience that enables me to analyze the needs and to design and develop tools that meet those needs. As a prisoner I have the time to do all of this but I need free world help with making these tools a reality. Please write to me so we can start learning from each other ways to improve the world. James Weeks #1489149, Clements Unit, 9601 Spur 591, Amarillo, TX 79107

Peace and Blessings. I’m a 43 year old Brother, looking for several things (order does not indicate priority). (1) I’m looking to correspond with a woman with some depth to her, spiritually sound, intellectual but grounded. AS we correspond I want to be building, always…In other words I’m not just trying to talk, I want you to be capable of talking about something. Of course I would love to hear from my Sisters of the Struggle, Spirit of the Struggle. I really don’t have any specifics, I don’t care about race, age, religion, nationality, formal education. Come as you are, baggage included; I’ll have mine, for sure. I’m a single man, father and grandfather. Under my current circumstances my only desire is for us to come together from a level of mutuality, respect, and understanding – things that are essential for building. I don’t have too much time. I envision the rest of life as so different from the past. I know the people, places, and things that I can experience are boundless. (2) If you are a Brother and a comrade, please feel free to contact me. I do all I can to educate myself by reading books, but I look forward to that time where I transition from a P.O.W. to a free freedom fighter – Insha’Allah.

In the name of ALLAH. Hello, my name is IKRIYMAH MOHAMMED. I’m placing this ad for 2 reasons. First, I’m looking to correspond with an ethically strong & religious woman with the sole intent to marry, nothing less than to talk Islam & teach/learn from one another. I would like her to be age 21-40, no more than 2 children, but willing to have many more. The children thing is only because I want my own. Race and measurements don’t matter to me. My only care is that she strictly observes the proper Hijab & modest covering and that she’s also strict in guarding her chastity from illegal acts. I have a son from when I was 16 & never have I been married. My mother is from Sierra Leone, my dad is from Somalia. I was raised in DC and MD. I’m 29, 5’7”, 160 lbs. I’ve been in 8 years and I should be home in 2 years max, INSHA’ALLAH. I’m a SUNNI/SALAFI Muslim who adheres to the Quran and Sunnah, according to the understanding and implementation of the Pious Predecessors. I speak and write ARABIC fluently, I also speak Somali, Krio & Spanish. Here in prison, I’m one of the educational AMIRS, I teach ARABIC, AQEEDAH and TAJWEED. I’m an avid soccer FANATIC, I also indulge in dirt bikes & motorcycles. I love fishing, studying Islamic matters, riding horses, cooking and being in solitary – not confinement, but being alone, pondering & thinking bout life. Hopefully this proposal reaches a woman of character I’m searching for. My 2nd reason for this is to correspond with any Muslim about Islam and the things going on in the world such as famine, sickness, lack of food and water in Muslim countries as well as Rohingya type crises. Will respond to all who write me, for the sake of ALLAH – the most high. DeAndre Allen #400875, MCTC, 18800 Roxbury Road, Hagerstown, MD 21746

I’m reaching out to find a friend, pen-pal or just someone to share a smile with. My name is Milton R. Pollock. I was born 12/4/67 in Portland, Oregon but moved to California with my family at a very young age. As it is I am many miles away from home, family and friends. Trouble found me in my youth and I later awoke to find myself struggling to survive in the harsh realities of San Quentin’s Death Row. Refusing to accept that my life is ruined or wasted, I continually challenge myself. I’ve finished school, taken a couple college classes. I exercise to stay healthy and alert and I find comfort in my art work, making small posters and creating the perfect greeting cards. It would be amazing to show and share my art with others. I would like to correspond with a strong minded woman who would like to share thoughts and feelings about life and maybe get to know me like no one ever has? I’m not looking to play mind games. Just a compassionate friend who wants to write a man that once stumbled but didn’t fall. I will answer all, THANK YOU! Milton R. Pollock #J23700, SQSP, San Quentin, CA 94974

Attention Viewers! Intelligent, single, well-experienced Black man! If possible I’d like to take this golden opportunity to eliminate all the bad thoughts about me. Allow me to introduce myself. Standing at a gorgeous 5’8” excellence, brown-skinned, brown eyes and good hair. I’m born Eric Sudds but friends call me E-moe for short. Coming up in a hometown of Houston Texas, I also made bad mistakes and also learned from them honestly. I have a good sense of humor and love to make people smile. I’m a very open-minded person who will communicate with anyone who loves to enjoy life to the fullest! Also, coming up in life, I was introduced at a young age to music, so it’s been part of my life. And my journey is to actually advance in getting a major label to sign me. I have the luxury of being a singer as well as rapper extensive taste! Allow me to provide you with a small detail of my ease. I’ve been in a correctional facility since 2002 for “accessory of a bank robbery”, April of 2002 being so good-hearted to my friend some money and lent him my car to take his kids and baby-momma out for a nice time – something he had never done for his family. But he done otherwise! On my way to work the next morning I was surrounded by and drawn down in my car by Houston Police Department. I was arrested and put in custody. I was hurt but I could not see myself telling on a friend who had been my friend all my life growing up. But as the old saying goes your friends are not who you think they are. Before the life of prison, I enjoyed a life full of love, traveling, football, NBA and much more! I love meeting new people. The world is so full of great people I want to meet such as you. With that said, I look forward to surrounding myself with the great quality of you. I’m spontaneous, energetic and fun-loving. I’m looking for a free spirit like myself to communicate with and, if possible, share a life-long connection. Should be independent, intelligent, honest, understanding. Must be that “special someone” – race and age is so silly. Just be yourself and know that God is first. Truly, Eric Sudds #01212661, Coffield Unit X-122-T, 2661 FM 2054, Tennessee Colony, TX 75884

Hello Ladies. I’ve been blessed with this opportunity to fill this loneliness in my heart, and I’m hoping someone can look beyond my unfortunate circumstances and want to get to know me better. My name is Jesse Garcia, I’m 6’2, 200 pounds, and I turned 46 in July 2018 (Leo). I was born and raised in East Los Angeles, CA. However I’ve been in prison the majority of my adult life from making poor decisions and bad choices. But…I’m a different person today and much more mature, and God willing I’ll be paroled in about a year. It’s been a long time since I’ve looked for a friendship and/or love, cause I was blessed to be in a relationship for the past 10 years. But unfortunately sometimes things don’t work out as we want them to. ☹ No one wants to be alone nor did God intend us to be. So I’m opening my heart again and my wish is to find a solid friendship built on trust and honesty, because it’s how I live my life. I need a woman who respects herself and is open minded. A pretty smile doesn’t hurt either. 😊 I’m an open and easy person to get along with and my heart is filled with love and kindness. I treat everyone with respect and how I want to be treated. I have many desires and goals in life, but there’s nothing more important to me than giving back and doing something positive with the rest of my life. Well Ladies if you have room for a genuine and gentle soul in your heart I would be honored and love to hear from you. Take care & God Bless. Sincerely, Jesse Garcia #H30832, RJDCF, 480 Alta Road, San Diego, CA 92179

As an adolescent I became a victim of an injustice which caused my incarceration. Many tactics were utilized to secure my position as a prisoner, which I am currently addressing. Per my appeal, I’ve been given a second chance to seek justice as is necessary to address an injustice. Currently I’m seeking aid as is necessary to obtain a private investigator and as well payment for my appellate attorney who has acknowledged many malicious acts in terms of my being prosecuted as an adolescent delinquent.

Unfortunately I’ve been incarcerated since I was 16, my earliest release is 2026. Born in 1995, Rochester, NY. Prison and all other life experiences have made me savvy and business minded, hungry for justice for myself and my people. Without being robbed of my childhood, and the tribulations I would not be able to have sympathy for men and boys who are emasculated, empathy for women who are left vulnerable and exploited, left alone to pass on a generational curse. On the contrary I’m still human, I love to travel, cook, write poetry; I’ve gotten my record label licensed with my brother. Business is everything. I love retaining knowledge and wisdom and using it to create something innovative. I like going against the odds. I’m hoping this ad helps me to find a friend who can help me get the most out of my time in prison. I would like to come home and have a beautiful foundation so I can smoothly build the rest of my future. Dedication, loyalty, consistency is something I deserve because I have that to offer plus more. A friend who can see my vision, and invest her time in it if she believes in it, is a friend who I want around for a long time because her goals are consistent with mine and I’ve sacrificed too much time to waste any more. Feel free to ask me whatever’s on your mind. I look forward to hearing from you. Ayotunji Akinlawon #13B3238, SSCF, 354 Hunter Street, Ossining, NY 10562-5442

It don’t matter if it’s male or female, I just want someone to write because I don’t get any mail and don’t nobody correspond with me. And other inmates be joking me and laughing at me all because I don’t get any mail and it hurts. And I had said a prayer that God send me a pen-pal. Please write me back as soon as possible. Please take care, God Bless. Avery Daniels #1033928, Sussex I State Prison, 24414 Mussel White Drive, Waverly, VA 23891

Hello! My name is Steve Depperschmidt. I am currently in prison serving a 5 year sentence until 07-02-2021. I am 55 yrs old, 5’11, 230 lbs, brown hair, hazel/green/blue/grey eyes. I’m an Aries, DOB 03-27-1963. I’m not a sex offender, I’m in for domestic violence that I didn’t commit, because I have a prison record. I am a truck tire repair man by trade with 35 years of experience. I run a 24-7 road service truck, I was arrested @ work in March of 2018. I am on appeal now. I took a plea bargain because @ trial it’s hard to win if you’re a felon already ☹ Feel free to look up my public information online. I have nothing to hide and I do not lie and I will not lie. It seems, I can’t find a woman who does not use drugs in the state of California, it’s either “Meth”, “Norcos”, “Weed” or alcoholic related. I’m a recovering addict/alcoholic with no desire to use or drink. I am a very hard worker and I do alright on money too. I am single and I am from Southern California, San Bernardino/Riverside Counties, a little town called Yucaipa on the foothills of Big Bear. My mom and dad built a dome home in 1978 in Banning, California. I am white, French, Irish and English w/a German last name as my mom re-married. I look like the guy from the 1992 movie called “Heat” w/Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro and Val Kilmer. His stage name was Wayne Grove or Wayne Gro, he played a bank robber part. I have his face and all the Cos and inmate think I am an actor 😊 I wish, but not really. I like to read David Icke books and I listen to Coast to Coast and Ground Zero on 1460 AM @ 9:00 PM with Clyde Lewis, Ground Zero and George Noory @10:00 PM on Coast to Coast. I was raised with morals and values and brought up sheltered kinda. My real dad was a LA County Sheriff, my uncle was a cop, so was my sister. I am pretty lonely, my mom died from breast cancer and she was my best friend. I have a sister but we don’t talk. If you want to write I will be faithful, honest and real. With LOVE and Respect, Stephen Peter Depperschmidt #BF8693, CRC, PO Box 3535, Norco, CA 92860

My name is Keffier Savary. I’m a California prisoner, but I was born in Jamaica and raised in Miami, FL. I’m a 5 ft 9, darkskinned Black man. I’m a Scorpio and will be 37 this year. I currently have a life sentence. I like to draw and paint, please see the website . I also like to play guitar, piano/keyboard, and drums, and compose music. I am also an honorable discharged military veteran. I was wrongly convicted. I am seeking a good woman. I prefer quality over quantity. I’m looking for something on a friend level, but I’m open to more, even possibly marriage. Seeking someone who is open minded, honest, loyal, mature, not easily discouraged, who understands that nothing worth having comes easy. For me, race, religion, age, location, looks/physical appearance is not a factor. The inner beauty is what counts. No games. Ant something that can last a lifetime. I have Christian values. My desired woman doesn’t have to be Christian, but it’s a plus. If you are a lawyer or have the means to hire a lawyer to get me out, so that our relationship can break away beyond the confines & limitations of prison bars/walls – it’s a plus, but not a must. I do not have a phone, so don’t email me through the website. It is strictly reserved for clients. Someone manages the site for me. Write to me, you never know what the future holds. If you are not female then I’m open to “friends” only, nothing more. I’m a straight male. Keffier Savary #AN7306, CSP-SAC, B-1-123, PO Box 290066, Represa, CA 95671

To all the beautiful women in the world. This is Mr. Do Right getting at you in the form of a pen pal ad such as this. I am a black Afro American, who’s 52 years old. A God fearing man named King Michael. I am a very straightforward authentic person, who’s searching for my queen, Ms. Do Right. Age, weight, and race doesn’t matter. I’m seeking inner beauty in a beautiful woman who is filled with the love and Holy Spirit of God. I would like to develop a platonic relationship with that special lady. I have been incarcerated since 2008, and I’m looking forward to being released sometime in the future by the grace of God. I am not a lifer. My daily activities consist of studying the Bible, praying and meditating and encouraging my fellow peers to remain optimistic, clean and pure in their negative environment. I need and want to develop a pure and solid friendship with an authentic member of the opposite sex. I do not write poison pen letters, nor do I deceive anyone with phony lies and empty alibies as Rick Ross says I am the Truth. If you don’t believe me put me to the test, only then will you realize that you’ve found the best. Take this leap of faith and get at my without delay. This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. Until I hear from you I remain. God bless you, and God keep you perfectly safe and sound.

Dear Readers – I’ve been reading the Bay View for many years now & it’s amazing that good people want to help change this corrupt system. I myself have ben an advocate for change, which in turn has made my journey extremely unpleasant. They haven’t broke me, however family & friends have gone away…& I continue to fight. It’s a lonely fight because people are attached to worldly possessions & are easily dissuaded. So I’m looking to share my story w/folk who want to know the uncut realness about what goes on inside these walls. Believe me these guys have psychological tactics that have broken the strongest of men. I’m a SF Mission District native, who’s made his way up thru the system from the Youth Guidance Center, I am currently at Pelican Bay. I’m a very proactive 41 yr old, all changing of myself has been on my own, & I thirst for knowledge. I’m the easiest going person I know, I’m rich w/life experience, & my intentions are pure. I love sports, music & reading. I’m not short on words & look forward to meeting some open minded folk for some deep diverse conversation & people who want to join the good fight. So please write & let me know what’s on your mind. Peace & Respect. Justin Canon #K81954, PBSP, A-4-123L, PO Box 7500, Crescent City, CA 95532

Greetings to all the beautiful Bay View Queen readers around the world. I’m really not all that sure of how to start this ad because this is honestly the first time I’ve ever attempted something like this…and normally I wouldn’t have ever thought about doing such a thing for the simple fact, I know the odds of actually finding someone that will share their time with someone that’s incarcerated are slim…But for some reason something keeps telling me to try my luck with Bay View…I’m down here in Texas serving a life sentence, just looking for someone that’s genuine and sincere who I can vibe with on an intellectual level. I’m 39, 5’10, about 185 lb. with a very healthy and attractive mind, body and soul, and a sense of humor that will always keep things interesting. If you want to give it a try then I’ll be more than happy to accompany you. Take a chance, I highly doubt you’ll regret it. John Arabie #1830833, Wynne Unit, 810 FM 2821, Huntsville, TX 77349

For hobbies the prison setting does not offer many activities outside of what is the norm for most prisoners, so I usually play chess, stretch and meditate 4 times a day, exercise in the morning, write love poems and short verses of philosophy, draw whenever I can find something to apply my limited skills to, read books and magazines about fiction and fact topics, and study grammar so that I can constantly improve my ability to communicate my thoughts. I’m interested in corresponding with others as I have no insecurities about any differences which may separate us, because I’ve been looking for the inner essence of what connects us. So your handicaps, doubts, skin complexions, religions, race, height, or weight don’t calculate into the equation since I am just seeking to correspond with someone who can always be open and honest with me about their life, feelings, and thoughts as our correspondence develops. Cordially, Welsey Johnson #324059, Robertson Unit, 12071 FM 3522, Abilene, TX 79601

Hey, my name is John-Keith. I’m 48 years old and will be a year old 10-8-19. I’m a white male, 5’11” tall, 185 lbs., with a medium build. I have brown hair and playful green eyes. Look, I’m going to be absolutely honest with you. The 3 most important people to me have passed away in recent years. My mom in 2009, my dad in 2012, and my grandmother in 2016. The last couple of years have been difficult and very lonely. Though the rest of my family makes sure I have funds to help take care of my money needs, they don’t write. I haven’t had a letter in over a year and a half. Seeing others receive mail and talking on the phone makes my loneliness even worse, though I’m truly happy for those who have someone in their life like that. I would like to connect with anyone who is willing to give me a chance to be a friend to them. I would prefer a feminine perspective since I’m surrounded by men 24/7/365, but I’m open to all people. So if you have the heart and time to connect with a lonely soul, I’m more than happy to hear from you. Hope to hear from you soon. You can reach me at John Essary #762986, McConnell Unit, 3001 South Emily Drive, Beeville, TX 78102-8696

I’m African American, 30 years old & single. Seeking to connect with older women over 35 who are financially independent, fit and uninhibited. They run their own businesses, live by themselves. They’re significantly more experienced. They’re very confident in themselves and their body. Very often they take greater care of themselves than women half their age. For those of you who’d like to see me my Facebook page is Obeezo Rooks. For those of you who’d like to write me you can download the jpay app or by mail at D’aldrich O’Brien Costello #02139541, Bill Clements Unit, 9601 Spur 591, Amarillo, TX 79107-9606

Hi there, I’m hoping to meet some new friends. I love to write letters and meet new people. Should you consider becoming my pen friend, here are some things I can promise for you: a heart that understands and doesn’t judge; a man you can trust; a supporting shoulder to cry on; a man that will devote time to you alone.

Greetings – I’m in search of a friend who would be willing to correspond with me. I deal with the same people around me who want to lie, cheat, gossip, and practice many other forms of evil in the den of iniquity; my present incarceration causes me a limitation in access to those I can have inspirational uplifting conversations with. So my search is in essence for someone who will accept me as a friend. I understand that there will be times when I will need the value of a friend, there will also be times when I could offer kind words and prayers for others, I would love to share with others. I have tried numerous websites for prisoners to obtain penpals but I have no luck, I’ve been discouraged because the replies I have received have not been from the type of people I’m looking for! I’m 47 years old. Anyone wishing to contact me may do so by writing to me at: Frazier Crockett #N84966, PO Box 1000, Menard, IL 62259 or email

Hi, my name is Joe Lamb. I’m a 37 years young white male, 5’11, 175 lbs. Medium physique with lots of tattoos. Have a great sense of humor. I was born and raised in Florida and now I find myself alone and solitarily isolated and incarcerated in the state of Louisiana. I am a humanitarian. I am seeking support, communication, and maybe the opportunity to voice what I’m going through in hope to keep other people from making the mistakes that I have. I’m serving 10 years for a meth lab and possession of stolen property. Since my incarceration my loved ones (mother, aunt, fiancé) have all passed away and everyone else has turned their backs on me. Would love to share more of my story and life experiences with you. Maybe share some pictures. Joe Lamb #631737, RCC, 27268 Highway 21 North, Angie, LA 70426

If you are looking for a fun and adventurous man with a great sense of humor, then look no more! I’ve lived an alternative lifestyle, which really checks no one box, but dances around them all. I have very strong core family values and believe in loyalty and being real and true. I hold myself to a higher standard than most. I have a love for music and the outdoors. I’m still a kid at heart and believe in giving more than I receive. I put forth great effort to bring smiles and cheer to those around me and hopefully I’ll get the chance to do the same for you. All I need is your name and address. I promise 2 respond 2 every letter. Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, John Anderson #3507472, MOCC, 1 Mountainside Way, Mount Olive, WV 25185

I am an African-American man. I am 47 years of age. My date of birth is May 21, 1971; thus born under the astrological sign of Gemini. I hail from the beautiful city of Memphis, Tennessee; however, I now reside in Dallas, Texas. I am a certified paralegal; and prior to incarceration, I owned and operated Cowboys Paralegals in Dallas. I am college educated. I graduated from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio with a major in Business Administration. I also attended Delta State University in Cleveland, Mississippi. I am presently enrolled in Lee College, pursuing a degree in Microcomputer Applications. I am seeking an academic degree and technical degree. Upon release, I fully intend on reopening my company, Cowboys Paralegals. I am loquacious, an avid reader, and computers pique my interest; I also play chess, work out, enjoy playing basketball and all manner of sports. I am a dog lover and I enjoy the finest things in life, such as walks in the parks, museums, wine tasting, movies (Netflix, Hulu, etc.), cooking and quiet evenings with a special someone. I am looking for and interested in meeting someone with similar and complementary interests. I am scheduled to meet the parole board next year. The person I am interested in is witty, intelligent, loyal, professional and educated. If she loves the Struggle, that’s an A+. Looks are not important, but a loving personality and heart is. Praying that this letter will suffice to galvanize that special someone, I am and I remain sincerely yours, Sammie Netter Jr., #2019504, Wynne Unit, 810 FM 2128, Huntsville, TX 77349

Hey, don’t just stop by and move on, feel free to speak and converse. I don’t bite! A little conversation can tend to lighten up anyone’s life, yours and mine. My name is Isaias but I go by SHI-MEEK. I was born in Houston, TX. I’m 24 years young. I’m 5’8, Mexican, 190 lb. I am currently incarcerated and have a 60 year sentence but should be going home soon. So I decided maybe I could write this ad to write someone. A stranger, someone I know nothing about. Only because I like getting to know new people, learning every little detail I can get. You never know what you might find. Just know I’m perfectly fine with being upfront and forward with you. I’m very blunt as well as respectful. I’m like a book in a library allowing myself to be read. I’m also not the type of person to judge anyone, because who am I to do so? To judge would be like judging myself, because you are a reflection of self. I’m very conversation friendly and look at life as teachings and opportunities for one’s own self growth and development. What I’m looking for mostly is communication, being able to talk with someone who doesn’t mind communicating and being a friend. The attributes of a person on the inside is what I look at. Friendship is a bond and loyalty is everything. But let’s change that stranger part into a friend. I can be your ear of comfort and understanding and your voice of reasoning in time of need. If you ever need someone to talk to or just express those thoughts you can always write me and we can chop and swap the dose with one another. Yesterday was history, tomorrow’s a mystery, and today is a gift. That is why they call it the present. You never know what you might find in the person you are speaking and conversing with or in life itself. P.E.A.C.E. TO THE TRUE AND LIVING. Isaias Arellano #02032533, JB Connally Unit, 899 FM 632, Kenedy, TX 78119

My name is Alvin Stanley. I’m 34 years old, 6 foot 1, 190 pounds, an African American lite skinned male from Virginia Beach, Virginia. I’m currently incarcerated in the Georgia Department of Corrections. I’m looking for a strong Christian woman that I can be compatible with. I’ve made some wrong decisions in my life that have landed me in prison, but I can honestly say that I am a changed man and I’m very sincere about my transformation. So if there is a strong Christian woman looking for a man who is going to support them 100% at anything they do, I’m the person to invest their time into. I have a great family support system so I do not need you financially at all. I do not have that much time left in prison and I plan on doing something productive with my life Lord willing. If you must know I’m a certified HVAC tech, electrician, landscaper, and can actually build a house by reading any blueprint, my family’s real estate business has enabled me to achieve such a thing. I also love sports and I enjoy helping others. So if three’s a strong Christian woman looking for a strong Christian man who is going to accomplish great things in life, I’m definitely what you have been looking for. God Bless and thank you for taking time out to read this profile. Sincerely, Alvin G. Stanley #1001077008, BSP, PO Box 218, Hardwick, GA 31034

Peace and Blessings to all the beautiful women of Allah’s creation. My name is Khalifah Ali. I’m a 31 year old black Muslim male standing at 5’10, 190 lbs, brown eyes, and pretty straight white teeth. I’m born and raised from the east side of Savannah Georgia. I’m currently serving a life sentence of a railroad conviction. Right now I’m at my Federal Habeas Corpus stage, and plan to get some type of relief there, Insha Allah (God willing). I’m now 11 years in. But this time doesn’t define who I really am. I’m very intelligent, funny, kind, loving, honest, and most of all loyal. I’m just looking for a woman that I can correspond with and become good friends, or maybe more; that shares similar characteristics. I’m willing and able to be that listening ear that a woman may not only want, but need in your life at times. I have a fetish for women with braces, pretty eyes, and pretty feet. I’m looking for a woman between the ages of 30 and 50. I’m really into older women, but I’m open to all “legal” ages and all races. I’m not really into skinny women, I like thick to plus size women. I like a woman that’s confident but not arrogant, open minded, intelligent, honest, and loyal. I don’t know if I’m able to receive prison to prison mail, but I’m open to all women. If you fit inside these categories I’ll like to hear from you. Who knows…our interest might unfold to a better understanding.

Hello I am a 46 year old white male, good looking, in shape, looking for friendship – if more can come then let it be. But more than that I am an inventor. I have some ideas that I know will make millions of dollars. I am looking for an investor, someone that knows how to get patents and get ideas going. Daymond John or Lori Greiner are two people that can help. So if you’re someone reading this that can help me get in to contact with them that is who can help. I understand nothing is free in this world but I’m willing to share, all you got to do is help me get my idea out there. Yes I’m in prison, I’m go up for parole Oct 2018 so I should be out soon. I am from Kansas City, Missouri. If I could find someone close to there it would help but I have no tie to nowhere. If you send me a pic you must do so in an envelope by itself, no letter or anything else can be with the pic. I will answer all letters then go from there. But for real I need someone to help me jump start my ideas. Thanks. Gary Riddle #367116, JCCC, 7-D-112, 8200 No More Victims Road, Jefferson City, MO 65101
