Stephen Oakes 1425245 VA, 33
My name is Stephen. My friends call me Shady. Where to start? I have a little over two years left in my sentence. I am focused on my release and future, so I am preparing the best way I can. I was convicted on drug charges. It is a long story, but one I am willing to share. I take responsibility for what I did, but I can’t change the past. I can only move forward the best way I can.
On a lighter note, I don’t let this place get to me. I know I will never come back once released. I try to surround myself with positive people. This is the reason why I joined this network, because I know that there are good people out there who believe in second chances. I hope you are one of them.
I would love to hear from you. I enjoy meeting new people and I would love to hear what is going on out there. I am tired of the prison life and need to hear about life on the outside.
I do have Jpay and can receive emails. I look forward to hearing from you. I hope life is treating you well. I know that this is not an ideal situation for you to write someone in here, but if given the chance, I can show you that I am still a human being who made bad choices in my life. I am a different man today and will be in the future. Thank you again.
