I’m writing in regards to my experience that I have had at MSDF. I am 39 years of age and I have been doing time since I was 18 years of age. My first experience came in 98, where I didn’t get released until 2003. My second time was 2006 to 2007 (prison time, not MSDF). My first time in MSDF was 2008 to 2009, which I was locked up for 7 months. This cost me my job and time from my family. The worst thing about the situation was that I was never offered an ATR (alternative to revocation) or no type of drug program. My second time in MSDF I did 17 months where once again I lost a job and was never offered any treatment.
Now I have been locked up since 7-2-17. I got out of prison in 2010 and stayed out since 7-2-17. I was getting married 7-8-17 but that got put on hold because on 7-2-17 I was going out before I married but I got drunk and got in a car accident. Like I said in the beginning of the letter, I have been incarcerated since 7-2-17 and the law judge gave me 5 years prison stay for an OWI. I did not hurt anyone but I do believe my actions were wrong. I felt that I needed to be punished but 5 years was too much time. In the process I lost my job that I held down for 6 years. If I came home right now I could go back. I lost my house and my fiancé. I also lost my car. Right now I am in the process of appealing and I’m hoping something good happens out of this situation. Now I am writing, hoping that my input on my situation can help bring some justice to putting an end to wrongful treatment in MSDF.
