Default Can't believe it will be 4 years in February

I have been a long time PTO member - From December 2006 when the shit hit the fan to now!

I will have been out of prison for four years in February. When I was sentenced to 120 years for Embezzlement with all of it suspended but 3 years. I did 2-1/2 with good behavior and walked out of prion on supervised probation.

I have to say it was tough - struggled a lot - adjusted a lot - lost a lot but I was determined and in February 2013 I was released from supervised probation!!!!!

This allows me to have my complete FREEDOM back! Sure I might be on "paper" but that is a lot better than what I was...

I take one day at a time and that is all I can do...

Sure I have restitution of $860k and I owe over $300k in taxes (yep the IRS loves to tax the embezzlement cases) but it is all good - IRS deemed me "non-collectable" and I pay my monthly restitution as ordered for the rest of my life....

Today I am happy and hopeful for what my future holds. I am actually glad I went to prison - I changed for the better and I am a much better human being b/c of prison!

I hope that my story that I have shared with so many will help just one person...

When you lose EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING it makes you stop and have a reality check!!!

If anyone needs to chat or is feeling the pressure of an upcoming court situation dealing with Embezzlement don't hesitate to PM me - I will help as much as I can!!!

Take Care!
