About the Author
I’m a Good Person, but I Made Some Mistakes and I Paid the Price
First and foremost I want to state the obvious, crime doesn’t’ pay. I regret the actions that I took that hurt myself and others. I paid for my actions. It’s just not worth all of the stress, fines and possible jail time. We live in the land of opportunity. Other options are available to all of us to earn a living.
This book is about how I was able to get off probation early. I value my privacy and I don’t want to draw attention to myself or my background. I paid the price for my actions. I can assure you that my story is completely true. I’ll do my best to summarize a long story.
I Grew Up in a Loving Family
I grew up in the southwestern part of the United States. After graduating from college I married the love of my life and moved to the West Coast. I worked at a series of dead end jobs. I always kept my eyes open to find new opportunities to have a better life. I dreamed of starting my own business. I desperately wanted to achieve the American dream.
I came across what I thought was the opportunity of a lifetime. I had the chance to study a business in another state for a week. This business received part of it’s funding from the government. The more I thought about it, the more I thought this was the perfect business.
I spoke with my best friend about this opportunity. We agreed to start a similar business in another state. I didn’t have any money, but I had a lot of credit cards. We started our business with credit cards. It was harder than I thought it would be. It took months to find the right building, hire the staff and get if off the ground.
I Was Living the American Dream
Eventually, the business took off. We were making money for ourselves, providing good jobs for our employees and helping people. Life was good. The business was up and down, but overall it did okay for a few years. We had only one competitor in a very large city. There were many people who needed the services our facility provided. Fortunately, we were able to save some of the money that we made. (We would later use this money to pay restitution and legal fees.)
The business started to deteriorate when the government made it tougher to get paid. We stuck it out for a while, but later sold the business for a token amount to a supplier we owed a substantial amount of money to. I thought this was a win/win situation for everyone. In hindsight, I should have closed the business down. If I had closed the business down, nothing would have happened to me. I never would have been charged with a crime and never would have been sent to prison. You live and learn from your mistakes.
Welcome to Hell – Being Investigated by the Feds
Out of the blue, the Feds showed up at my office and started asking questions. Caught off guard, I made incriminating statements about myself. I later found out that close friends had been under investigation and had cooperated on my case to get a better deal. This is an everyday occurrence in the criminal justice system. Yes, I’m guilty of the crime. But usually individuals only have to repay the money they owe to the government. It’s very rare for anyone to go to prison for what we did, even in major cases.
I Thought I Could Get Off if I Hired a Fancy High Priced Lawyer
I hired an expensive lawyer because I thought I could get off with the right lawyer. I was wrong. (It’s easy to spend a fortune on legal fees.) I later ended up spending all of my money on legal fees, expert witnesses and paying restitution. (Paying the legal fees was more painful than going to prison.) I was offered a plea deal, but I rejected it because I thought a loved one would then go to jail.
My Parents Were Always There for Me
My parents were always there for me. They stood by me when I was going through my legal ordeal. My parents also attended every court hearing and graciously allowed me to live with them for free when I was on house arrest and trying to start a new life. I will always remember and be grateful for their kindness. I lost everything and they were there for me.
My Life was a Living Nightmare. I was looking at Twenty Years in Prison.
I was looking at up to twenty years in prison. The judge only gave me less than a year at a federal camp, house arrest and three years of probation. I was happy, but all of my co-defendants got off with only house arrest and probation. While in prison I realized how lucky I was in comparison to most of the other people I met in prison. Most of my friends in prison had nothing at all.
I Literally Lost Everything
I lost everything that I had. I lost my friends, my wife and everything that I owned. I worried about my case constantly and the stress caused my health to deteriorate. (I’m sure my ex-wife blames me for everything.) My ex-wife is a good person and I regret getting her involved in this venture. Getting a divorce was painful. I always thought she was my best friend and soul mate. I couldn't imagine life without her.
I Lost My Wife, Who Was the Love of My Life
I never thought we would get into trouble for anything. I believe we were doing exactly what many other similar businesses were doing. It’s over and I can’t look back. I’ll never get into trouble again. It’s just not worth it.
After getting out of prison, I lived with my parents to complete my house arrest and probation. I stayed out of trouble. I also completed a Masters degree and worked at different jobs. The jobs were just horrible, but it kept me busy.
Probation was Worst than Prison
In many ways being on probation is harder than being in prison. At least when I was in prison I was with my friends. Also, when you’re on probation you always worry about getting into trouble and being sent back to prison. It’s stressful being on probation. There’s a lot of temptation out there and it’s easy to make a mistake and get into trouble.
I Desperately Wanted to Get Off Probation as Soon As Possible
I was always on my best behavior with my probation officer. I also worked hard to comply with the terms of my probation. I wasn’t perfect and I made some mistakes, but I tried my best. My goal was to get off probation as soon as possible. It’s easier to start rebuilding your life when you’re completely free.
Out of Nowhere a Miracle Happened
While I was on probation, one of my co-defendants contacted me and told me that she had been able to get off probation early. I asked her what she had done. After being on probation for six months, I asked my probation officer if he would support me if I asked the court for early termination of my probation. He told me it was okay. Next, I wrote and submitted a motion to the court asking for early termination of my probation. To my surprise my motion was granted. I was a free man after only serving less than seven months of probation. (Keep in mind, I was fortunate. Generally, you should serve at least half of your probation before asking the judge to terminate the rest of your probation.)
I’m rebuilding my life. Everyday my life is getting better. I’m optimistic about my future. Life is good. I’m grateful for the freedom that I have and cherish every minute of it.
Being incarcerated has had a profound impact on how I view the world and interact with others.
The Day I Got off Probation was the Happiest Day of My Life
I’m a free man again. I can do whatever I want to do. I can travel to another state or to another country without having to ask for permission. Also, I don’t have to worry about screwing up and being sent back to prison. Being completely free is great! I cherish every moment of my freedom. Life is good.
