20 yrs ago I was convicted and sentenced to months on End n county Jail at Twin Towers Correctional Facility on an embezzlement charge. (I robbed the bank I worked at๐Ÿ˜”). I was separated from my 19 month old daughter. I was crying every day. ๐Ÿ˜ญI was extradited fr the Bay Area to Los Angeles. I was a disappointment to my Family. I was trash. I thought I would Never get out. I thought Surely they would loose my paperwork. The food sucked and the showers were even worse. Only prayer and the love of my friends got me thru. @renelsfvoyce @misslaurahayes @edwondasworld @whoscarmilla The Lawson Family, Marsha, Liz, Ann, Dessie….All my Oakland Comic Friends, Geoffrey Pete, Sweet Jimmie, Chuck Johnson And my Soul Beat Family, my Baby Daddy and His family.

Well, I DID get released. B 4 I even went to c my kid, tha homie Janet Lewis/White took me to c @guytorry and I got on stage at The Comedy Storeโ€™s Phat Tuesday and I vented.
