On Saturday, April 10, I received the following message:

“I have been reading your blogs from Taft Federal Prison Camp. The most recent one I read that stood out was about saying thank you. I have been in the dungeon for so long waiting to get sentenced, I have forgotten to say to say thank you to anyone! Does this ever get better? Wish this was over but my attorney said another 6-8 months, at least. Thank you for your blogs (my first genuine THANK YOU in a while!). Roger.”

In this video, I share my response to this defendant (now a mitigation and federal prison consulting client), along with the blog I wrote from federal prison on November 25, 2008.

Here is a link to the blog I reference in this video:
