I stole money from a Russian oligarch, got caught, and was sentenced to 50 months in prison. In a few weeks I head off to a prison camp in California. For the past several months I have been writing about my experiences with the criminal justice system, crime and incarceration on my blog, Diary of a Wimpy Con. I suppose my experiences are somewhat different than many others because I was convicted of a white collar crime. But I believe that my thoughts and feelings are shared by many others out there.

I was charged and sentenced for 4 1/2 year's first offence for stabbing a man 34 time's and putting a woman in the hospital a day before the stabbing. I made headline's all over Canada, in the news paper's on radio talk show's and t.v., because of my heinous crime's...but after serving just 3 month's I was let out on parole, but didn't last, I was let out again 3 month's later but didn't last either, and they kept shipping me back and forth from fort Saskatchewan correction center and Lethbridge correctional center and in between those transfer's I would spend quite a bit of time's in the remand center, edmonton remand center and calgary remand center, so one day I finally got tired of being shipped back and forth, I put in a request to be transferred to the maximum prison for woman, BCCW (Burnaby correctional center for woman, and there are woman doing life in there, well anyway's after spending about 10 month's I worked my way to the minimum security and escaped...and was gone for 13 month's before they caught up to me, so then I finished my time and was released, after that I went back to the north pole resolute bay and opened up 2 business's...and so can they, with the right help, and I'm hoping I can return there to speak to the inmate's...WHO DO I GO TO FOR THAT

I hope to help my ex pillow inmate's in any way I can, after all, they are the one's that helped me through, they helped me to survive and live on when I didn't want to live anymore....the people that are doing time are not as bad as what people think, it's only the piece of paper that make's people judge, I think people from the outside should take the time to get to know these prisoner's, there actually more human then most that have never done time

OMG, I don't have any experience behind prison wall,.I.am sure some people have done some evil thing's that put them there and probably will die in prison, that last comment was not necessary, we all have.done somethings in life thats wrong, what I do know there is a forgiving God, thats more forgiven then man, so check your self before you sign someone death certificate to hell....Fyi there not all bad people in prison, just bad chooses they made,at the end of the day God is in control.....sleep on Sin shall not.have dominion over you,for you are not under law but under grace....Romans 6:14

    how very beautiful, God loves all of us. I am very interested in the life of a prisoner in a MI prison. Does one share a cell? Can one read books if someone brings them? Can one write? I am certain the food is awful, I imagine bugs are in it. are there group meetings? I would appreciate some info if you think you can.

    I did 4 1/2 year's all over Canada, and yes we are allowed book's in our cell's, there is a library, we have exercise at gym (weight lifting ), we have outside fresh air, we have school, we have canteen (store) there is actually everything and there is church service's every sunday, and much much more

    and your right, people doing time in jail are not all bad people, actually they are more humane then most people on the outside, they will not tolerate child molester's, child murderer's, and child abuser's...their awesome for that

I spent 5 years of my life at Tutwiler prison for women. It was horrible. The guards both male and female treat you awful. The living conditions are totally uncalled for. You only get 30 pads a month. my God we are women we use more that. It is so hot in the summer women fall out left and right. it is so cold in the winter you have to put on every piece of clothing to try and stay warm. The guards abuse you physically, mentally, sexually and emotionally. you report it and nothing gets done about it. The wardens, staff members no one cares about it.

    They do not give you enough blankets? Is there two to a cell/ Can you have books and writing paper? How about dr. issued meds? I want to learn everything I can about it as I have never even been in jail. Is there a toilet in the cell? Do they force exercise even if one is not well? would appreciate any thing you can share.

So now after your life of crime and your older you're going to pretend to be a God following person oh that's selling a book on Amazon you two-faced prick I hope the rest of your life is filled with misery and when you die you go to hell and burn forever... I'm sure all the people you hurt in the wake of your crimes would agree with me...

As I read all that shit about these prisoners poor stories it brings a warm joy to my heart knowing that prison is such hell. Y22753 SIMPKINS, SHANE Killed my elderly mother. He prays on the old and steals from them like the scumbag he is. I hope life in prison is hell and he somehow reads this. And for all the family members out there of these poor people imprisoned should go to hell themselves. These scumbags that you say you love our heartless murders that have no feelings of anything but themselves and their needs. I hope you all experience murder or rape or something of that magnitude on yourself and you understand the bullshit that your loved ones put on others. I hope every prison in United States is a horrible place with cold showers rotten food and brutal rapes stabbings occur. Our justice system is way too easy on these creeps. I hope whatever your loved one did that you experience a raft tenfold worse. Maybe then you'll actually understand what your scumbag loved ones did to other families... Have a great day, and for all you prisoners out there I hope your raped today...

    I am sorry.
jatrmm wrote on Wednesday, April 02, 2014

    WOW!! You are totally messed up!! How can you blame anyone for another one's choices. The violent people belong where they are. Anyone that hurts another person deserves to be locked up until death takes them. As the Bible says " You will serve everyday that you are sentenced" that is coming from the Lord. He did not hand over the holy word to you. You need to beg God for forgiveness, If I were you I would be afraid to close my eyes at night, With the hatred you have inside. You will be the one burning in hell. Our God is a forgiving God, No matter what you feel. Your soul will never rest and that's on you.

My husband Michael was arrested May 21 ,2013 charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm. As far as the wording yes, Mike was a former felon and yes there was a gun in the house. He barely touched the 270 caliber rifle . Michael never used the firearm to threaten anyone. The rifle was never used by Michael in the commission of a crime.



The Officer who requested the search and seizure order, Officer Erick Pruitt came to our home posing as an interested buyer. Mike showed him the gun and the gentleman left, Neither Mike or I knew he was a police officer.



An informer or possibly a busy body managed to take several photos of Mike with the gun. These photos found their way to the Deputy District Attorney's desk .



Mike shares some of the blame for what happened to him ,to us. he was so proud of being an ex felon he could not keep his mouth shut. After 13 years he was so over confident that the authorities would not be interested in him , He bragged the cops would not touch him ;they knew better.



In this situation a felon plus a firearm equals prison. I kept arguing there had to be an alternative. I begged and pleaded for the prosecution to recommend Probation in exchange for a guilty plea. When I argued and pleaded for time served I thought the time served would be subtracted from his probation sentence. That is not the way it works; at least not here in Nevada.



one third of the way through the trial I found myself facing a felony of my own. I was accused of perjury. In shock and fear of being arrested, sent to jail and possibly prison. I entered a guilty plea. Had I known perjury was a felony I would not have entered any plea.



The Deputy District Attorney tried his best to get me to say Michael convinced me to commit perjury in order to shift the blame from him to the police or possibly me. The answers I gave were of my own free will. whatever influence my husband ; what ever request he made was just that, My mind was made up before I entered the court house.



No matter what I tried to do for him , all Mike could see was his wife was siding with the enemy. I don't know if I actually sided with the prosecution but, I definitely danced several waltzes with the devils.



I could not say Michael was innocent . It was an unjust law with no consideration for the individual, or the circumstances. Justice should not be a one size fits all.



After three months in the county lock up Michael entered the guilty plea and was given 3 years probation.

    No guns = no guns. Your man is a convict. Deal with it I don't commit crimes and prefer to keep criminals locked up so me and my family are safe from people like your husband
