My name is Jason and I’ve been incarcerated for over 11 years.

I’m a down-to-earth person — peaceful, honest, and respectful. I’ve made mistakes and suffered hardships. However, those experiences have made me a better, more compassionate man.

I have two sons, ages 13 and 15. They are so important to me and give me hope. I love them dearly. Family is so very important to me.

I’m looking to correspond with anyone who shares my likes, goals and dreams. I am open-minded, and seek

Inmate Penpal Listing Burnice Ford – Inmate Penpal #081213-2259

Start date : February 27, 2014  ¤  Listed in : Male Inmates Age 36 - 40, Prisoners Serving Life

My name is Burnice.

I’m 5′ 9″ tall, 230lbs. and dropping. I’m eating healthier and exercising more. I was convicted of armed robbery in Polk County, Florida and armed robbery and armed kidnapping in Tampa, Florida.

I will admit that I did the armed robbery in Polk County but I didn’t do the one in Tampa. In either crime, no one was hurt or even touched. The reason I was charged and convicted in Tampa was because of my ex-girlfriends step-father. I’ll explain.

I was in a relationship with a girl who’s mother was white and father was black. Her father died and her mother

To you that’s reading this…

I want to say hello and I hope that this short story of myself captivates you in a way that you would want to get to know more of me.

For days I’ve wondered what should I say to someone that I don’t know. Even now as I write this I struggle because I don’t want to say things that might offend someone. But I’ve learned that you can’t make everyone happy. That’s just how it is. Do you agree?

There are different aspects which make me who I am. My dilemma is deciding which aspects of my life to share cause I


Inmate Penpal Listing Lawrence Atkins – Inmate Penpal #102013-0739

Start date : November 16, 2013  ¤  Listed in : Male Inmates Age 51 +, Prisoners Serving Life

Hi. You’re reading some of me – Larry (short for Lawrence) – which I hope will give rise to contact by you in that you too might have and want to share, say or discuss things as I do.

Although prison life here in Texas is bearable, outside contact with others can and does make a huge difference and is longed for always. Friendships, Fellowships, Pen Pals, someone to just talk to means so much.

I was born and raised in Houston, Texas. After High School and some travels, I moved and started over in Austin, Texas. As my travels and adventures involved things mostly related to the great outdoors (i.e. snow- and water-ski, motorcycles, hike & bike, some hunting and even some deep-sea stuff), Houston had to end, thus Austin begin, as it’s quite the outdoor

As you can see by my self-portrait, I am a 70-year-old self-taught artist.

My father was Hispanic and my mother was French. I had two brothers. Unfortunately, they are all deceased. I was arrested for two counts of felony murder the day before my 22nd birthday, in 1965, an it is very unlikely I will ever be released as a result of the “get tough” crime policies.

During my 48-plus years in prison I have tutored in a college program, taught art and photography, worked as an inmate committee representative and kept myself busy in many other positive pursuits. I am interested in
