My name is Jon Pierre, I am a 56 years young white male. I am a singer, song writer, as well as a poet. I am also quite crafty! I make jewelry and do leatherwork. I am an artist, working in pencil, acrylic and oil painting. I love drawing pet and people portraiture, as well as miniature landscapes. This place that I lived these past 22 years is a truly ugly place! To be able to create something beautiful while surrounded by ugliness has let me know that I still have something good within me to share with the world! It has kept my hope alive in a place where hope comes to die. It would be a blessing to share my artwork and writing with anyone that might appreciate them! I promise that I won’t waste your time, I will return any and all letters. Looking for Friendship: Jon Pierre Hoeffling, P-70104, P.O. Box 4610, Lancaster, CA 935539

I’m a SBM, 59, 6’4 ½”, 214lbs; I am handsome, intelligent, articulate, compassionate, attentive and down to earth. I come to you, God as my witness, as a sincere man full of truth. I am seeking a beautiful woman desiring to “get ahead” in life. Life has taught me many things of value, and what we learn is reflected upon what we have accomplished. I would like to hear from someone who is sincere, of mature thoughts and reflection; a person who is open-minded and willing to be honest as I am to them. Life is too short to spend it alone, not knowing if true happiness could be among us. If I sound like a man who is worth your time, then let’s explore the infinite possibilities, for we can never predict which encounters will be the ones we will never forget. Raymond M. Pickett, #C-21520, P.O. Box 409020, Ione, CA 95640.

I come as I am; and I am as I come: in respect!

Greetings… my name is Richard McCoy. I am originally from Chicago IL. But grew up in Missouri. I’m 39 years old, 5/6 and 190 pounds. I have 18 months left inside these walls. All are welcome to write. My aiming target is in the sky… ’cause I’m shooting for the stars. I know the struggle firsthand to not be able to relate with all those in it. My goal is to seek out new friends… maybe more. I’m able to send photos if you’d like. Also you can go to jpay.com and add me by putting in my name and number #1000485. Might I add that I am not biased to any gender, but I am 100% straight. And would only prefer to correspond with women of any and all races. Truthfully, I’m so close to the door I could care less if I never receive another piece of mail. Therefore, please sincere replies only. I’m too grown for games! Upon my release I plan to open my own business… and a few other things. But whomever is a part of a “caravan” will prevail to the highest elevation possible. All I can do is hope and pray that the powers that be send me sincere and blessed individuals who are very compatible. Well, since I’ve shared a portion of myself with you… maybe you can return the favor. Take care of yourself and family in the midst of this pandemic. I leave as I came: in respect!

Hello to all the ladies who could be reading this. My name is Tyrone, but you can call me Black Ty, which is what most call me. I’m 6 foot and my body is covered in tattoos because I love artwork. I weigh about 235 pounds of sheer niceness, if that’s even a word. I have light brown, smooth skin, low cut eyes and a neatly kept full beard. I have dreads that are well kept even without a retwist. I like to write poems, I love to write music as well as perform it, from rapping to creating the right beat. I love to study about different races that have also been through what my race of people have been through. I believe all lives matter no matter the race or beliefs of a person. What I’m looking for is someone that is serious about wanting to start a relationship but also is aware that friendship is the foundation for a relationship first and foremost. I’m 35 with no kids but looking to have some in the future. I work hard and play hard so the hustle is more than just doing and having one hustle. The mind is beautiful when you find out how to use it right… lol. I don’t mind women of different races. I don’t see skin color but the heart of a person. Don’t get it twisted either… I’m not looking for a monster with one eye or anything… but I am looking for someone that is also easy on the eyes. I like thick women with a nice butt, thighs and some nice C cups… I like my slim thick ladies too that can hold a good conversation with some substance to it. But let me wrap this up- but leave the best for last I’ll be home in 2024 ladies. To hit me up, just get on my J pay so we can email and go from there.

Greetings, my name is Bruce, though most people address me as Sojourner. Thank you for taking the time to read this; it is a pleasure to meet you. Who am I? I am a 32-year-old, single father of three young sons. I am currently imprisoned, but I am not defined by the crime I committed. I am a Christian. Also, I am an aspiring writer. Here are a few random things I enjoy: Furthering my education, reading, exercising, playing chess, sports, traveling, cooking, the arts, some television, the outdoors, business and above all, helping others any way that I can. Presently, I am making preparations for a successful reintegration into society. Though I’ve hit rock-bottom, I’ve discovered that rock-bottom can be a foundation on which to grow. I’m interested in communicating with anyone interested in communicating with me, a humble prisoner. I may not be able to offer you much, but what I can offer is true friendship, dedication, devotion, loyalty, a listening ear, a shoulder to lean on, words of encouragement, fellowship and love. I look forward to making your acquaintance. God bless you! Bruce Jackson, USP Lewisburg, 72214-050, P.O. Box 1000, Lewisburg, PA 17837

Support Group Needed! To the spirited women and men out in the free world: By placing this ad, it is my hope to form a network of people with long stretching resources to effectively assist me in my transition from prison back into society. After a lengthy stay in prison I have lost all family members, and contact with old companions would not be conducive to a successful life. So I hope to reach a few compassionate people who would dedicate their time to get to know me in order to determine if they believe that I am worthy of their investments in my future. Thank you! I can be reached at: Mr. Albert Fleming Jr. #E-21973, CSP-Solano, D20.24.6 lower, P.O. Box 4000, Vacaville, CA 95696-4000


My path is new and beautiful. I am a recovering addict that walks with God, and has coffee with him each morning “smile.” I wish to find new friendships that are positive, honest, and down to earth.

So if you are tired of the games, hit me up… I can be reached at: Felicia Martinez, #1665249, 4K-208B Hobby Unit 742 FM 712, Marlin, TX 76661

Hello there, I’m just a country boy from Texas who is open minded and looking for friendships. Interested in talking to real down to earth people. I will be getting out this year and have been on a lot of pen pal services trying to meet people but I’m beginning to think that I don’t have any game left to pick up women. So I’m gonna man up and ask for help from my sisters on how to be a ladies man, how to give a woman what she really wants, how to make a woman feel like she’s my queen and I will take all the tips you send me. I promise I will write to everyone that writes to me and I am looking forward to meeting new people that will help a lost brother out. Thank you for your time. God Bless.

There is so much to learn you need to write me to find out more details. Please enclose your contact info including phone number and email.

Dear Bayview Reader, My name is Agustine Diaz. I’m a 39 year old tattoo artist and rapper from Bryan, TX. (Youtube; Augustine Diaz) I have to do a little time for evading in a vehicle. God willing, I will be home soon. My reason for writing is not only to submit my information for the pen pal page but to point out something Marcus Garvey said in the 1970’s, that the founders of this nation did not do so to hand it over to people of color. This is what Donald Trump and his MAGA supporters understand. Our brothers and sisters in the BLM movement can keep on peacefully protesting but the sad truth is that force will continue to be used against people of color. Brother Malcolm X once said “To join my movement, you have to be willing to go to jail, the hospital and even the cemetery” I am a Muslim. I believe in a life after this and I am down for the cause. I’m for the people. When I get out I plan on joining the Black Lives Matter movement. I am a registered member of the Brown Berets based out of San Antonio, TX. I want to encourage you to keep up the good work. Augustine Diaz, #2309414, 1391 FM 3328, Tennessee Colony, TX 75880


Thank you to all the amazing people that take a chance on us, to get to know our story. A bit about me: I’m serving time in a California State Prison.

LOL Upon my release I wish to continue my education and attend university. I also want to continue to do art and hopefully one day I will be able to do it for a living I’m passionate about prison/criminal justice reform and I plan on incorporating elements of that into my art. If you have any questions ask away, I’m an open book. Out of so many other things you could do with your time, I’ll be blessed to receive a letter from you. Best regards, Ulises Kline, #AG4252, P.O.

I am a Dominican & African-American 30 year old male. Currently incarcerated, looking for a female pen-pal. I’m a sincere devout Sunni/Salafi Muslim. My release back into society will be in 2023. I was born in Atlantic City, NJ & my family moved to Richmond, VA when I was 12 years old. I love reading the Qu’ran, praying, fasting, & just being an up-right person as much as I can. I’m very polite & I have manners, because I personally feel that if you don’t respect yourself no one else will. I don’t’ have the knowledge of when this institution will issue inmate’s photos but you can go to facebook & find me under Ameen Salafi. Sadly my page is private so I can receive friend request at the present moment. Upon my release I plan on living in Philadelphia. I don’t listen to music, I mostly listen to lectures by Moosaa Richardson, Hasan Somali, Abu Kadeejah & Abu Uwais, just to name a few. Upon my release I plan on deleting all my photos off of social media platforms & use those platforms for things more beneficial like spreading the religion of Islam with lectures I’ve heard. I look forward to hearing from women that carries beauty within. Sincerely, Stephon Newmones – NQ0001 – PO Box 33028, St. Petersburg, FL 33733

I am a 33 year old Native American female. 5’5, just enough thickness in the right places. A “Real Woman” looking for someone “Real”. I am tired of the game players and scrubs. I don’t have any out support. I am doing this bid alone. I don’t need anyone writing me lies, wanting me to use my stamps to respond, that’s not going to fly. Don’t try to sell me dreams cause I am not buying. I am a woman that will keep it 1000 all the way. A rare commodity these days and times. I am looking for someone that can do the same. Someone that can be here for me and support me in every way. That includes financially. If you are that one and can handle this, write me. Miss Morris – 06679043 – PO Box 4000, Aliceville, AL 35442


Hello, my name is Kimani, and I’m from Detroit, Michigan. I enjoy reading, writing, learning, working out, listening to music, laughing, having a good time. 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, staying positive is key. I’m looking for a woman to correspond with old-school ways. I’m not trying to lock anybody down and have ‘em doin this time with me. We all got enough problems of our own, no sense in adding someone to the mix. I’m just trying to kick it with somebody cool who’s down to earth, capable of holding a decent conversation. I’ve always believed that a man with unrealistic expectations is prone to bypassing realistic opportunities, so I have no outrageous expectations with this. I don’t like to lie or be lied to. There’s always a girl trying to convince a dude she can hold him down and be faithful while he does his time, but that’s an unrealistic expectation! Only the rarest circumstance allow such a thing! I don’t even need all that! I’m just trying to find a friend who will appreciate me for the man I am, my mind, my spirit, and take it from there, come what may. So hit me up, I’m looking forward to hearing from you. Contact by snail mail or email at Jpay.com. Kimani Ware – A470743 – Trumbull C.I. – 5701 Burnett Rd, Leavittsburg, OH 44430


My name is Nathan Eric Cutchens and I’m sitting in federal prison almost three years past the most time which was 10 years. I don’t have no attorney and I don’t have means to get one. I did file a motion to get back in court but because I don’t know what I’m doing, I was told I didn’t have jurisdiction. Please find it in your heart to help me get a attorney. Anything you can do to help, will be paid back soon as my unconstitutional sentence ends Feb 2023. As I said, I’m 3 years past my time. Basically I have not had no time for 3 years now. Whatever you can do to help will be greatly appreciated. Send any help. Nathan Eric Cutchens – 14130021 – PO Box 474701, Des Moines, IA 50947

N a perfect world, I would never have to write this. N a perfect world there wouldn’t be this…absence. N a perfect world we would accept each other for who we are. N this imperfect world that we live in there isn’t any dignity N being truthful. You are equipped with the basic fundamentals needed to guide you to the truth should it be truth one favors. I say this because considering my own experience bought at the cost of these terrible years… My confinement is only a small part of who I am. I know the importance of faith, I know if you ask for direction you will get the answer, be it from above or your heart. I ask that you look deep within and see who I truly am. Seeking friends, companionship, etc… My name is André Center. I’m 43 years old and I’m seeking substance to elevate us both. There comes a time in everyone’s life when you realize that, if you stand still you’ll remain at that point forever. The pattern of life does not necessarily go as you plan. Beyond any understanding, you may at times be led in different directions that you never imagined, such as meeting me. Rather than wondering about or questioning the direction your life has taken, accept the fact that there is a path before you now. Me!

Hello ladies! My name is Tito Frazier and I’m from Greensboro, NC born and raised. I’m 28 years old, 5’11, brown skin, low cut with waves and approximately 180lbs, solid with a very athletic build. I enjoy working out, networking, and talking on the phone. I love building about life, business, success, nature, and love. I’m seeking to find a woman who’s down to earth, funny, loving, loyal, open, and ready to build a prosperous and meaningful friendship/relationship.

Simplicity forms the best line of open dialogue, with that said my name is Kamal J. Mubarak. A compassionate, dedicated, sincere, kind, gentle, and loyal, 56 years young man. I have a beautiful sense of human nature as well as a soulful sense of humor that brings a warm loving secure smile. Change borrows from time which allows there to be a creation of something and someone new in search of something and someone unique and different. The question now becomes will simplicity introduce me to the soft, gentle, beauty shaped with the contours of sculptured intelligence and the warm smile of sunshine? Friendship, companionship, fruitful conversations with you simply being you, unafraid, uninhibited, and privately uncensored to be the woman, who is supportive, protective, loving, loyal, and honest. I look forward to your open dialogue in hopes of creating something new with someone uniquely different. Reaching for a gentle, compassionate, confident, articulate Queen to laugh, walk, talk, and grow with surely you must overstand? If so I’m just as close as you allow me to be. Let’s allow the fragrance of change to flourish.
