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

Hello out there.

I’m a lonely petite and pretty female seeking someone who is real and honest to be my best friend in this dark, lonely place. Someone to be my sunshine in the rain.

I’m interested in meeting someone who is understanding, passionate, down-to-earth and knows how to have fun and enjoy life, because I like to laugh and have a good time.

I enjoy doing things for fun here such as scrabble, crosswords and reading. I like to write and

Start date : February 24, 2014  ¤  Listed in : Male Inmates Age 36 - 40

My name is Clifford Marvel Pinellas.

I’m 35 years old. Born in Orlando, Florida on 12.02.1977 to Mr. Dwight and Mrs. Vaciel Pinellas. I was the first child my mother had and the youngest out of six kids my father had from previous relationships.

Most of my life I was raised up in Kissimmee, Florida with both parents, and being the only child in the household most of the time.

In July, 1981 my mom gave birth to her second son who passed away in January, 1982. This symbolized the beginning of the destruction that would eventually affect us all mentally and physically. The death of my brother caused my parents to fight and embrace

I will be released from prison in a few years.

I’m just looking to meet some nice people in order to build some lasting friendships. I’ve been incarcerated since I was sixteen years old. I come from a broken home and practically raised myself. My mother was an addict and my dad was a no-show, so I grew up in foster homes before my grandmother gained custody.

In my grandmother’s home, I became a victim of sexual, physical and mental abuse. I was molested by a female cousin, and I was abused nearly every other way by everyone else in our household.

I tried to tell my grandmother, but she dismissed my claims and this caused me to lose trust. I started spending more

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

I am looking to meet a good Islamic sister, that is for real about Islam, who likes to talk about the Qur’an.

One who takes this Deen as their first priority, and willing to learn about Arabic, and how to read and write it as well. If you already know then that is a plus, because I’m learning myself, Alhamdu lillah. Sisters, I’m looking for a sister who is close to perfection, you know like I know, that no one is perfect, but Allah (Swt). You know I’m keeping it real, because life is for those that know how to live it. Sisters, I’ve been through a
