 August 29, 2013  ¤  Male Inmates Age 36 - 40

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

I was born in Chicago, Illinois.

I left my mothers house when I was fifteen years old because I thought I was grown. Started selling drugs for an income, then I was off the streets. At the same time I was hanging with some so-called friends and someone got killed. I was blamed for it.

I served six years but, before being incarcerated in 1995 I met my future wife. She was the love of my life. After getting released in 2002 I found her and we got married. We had five kids. We were living a nice life till this happened.

I got re-arrested and now I don’t have my family. My wife said she can’t do this time without me by her

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’m truly honored to have this opportunity to be an addition to your life.

It’s my humble request that you survey this profile in it’s entirety. As I rely on God’s strength and guidance, I hope these words find you well and with a nurturing heart.

In spite of what you already know of me, it’s essential that I confide to you that life thus far has been full of trauma, failures and horrible decisions. But yet, I’m beyond the sum of my worst moments. Having elected not to spend a great deal of time depicting ones true characteristics, I take pride in sharing those I hold dearest to me.

First, I’m a man of God who strives daily to stay in alignment with his principles; I’m a loving father who believes in family values; I’m very loyal, respectful, trustworthy, and appreciative; I’m unselfish and adore putting others


Pontiac Correctional Center Write Daniel Henney – Prison Penpal #071113-2348

 July 11, 2013  ¤  Male Inmates Age 31 - 35, Prison Inmates Serving Life

Hello, my name is Daniel Henney, and I am 33 years old.

I stand 5′ 9″, 216lbs. and I have blue eyes and short light-brown hair. I have been incarcerated for a little over 16 years now. I am serving a life sentence for a crime that was committed when I was a juvenile.

Please do not be too quick to judge me, give me the opportunity to share my story and give me the chance to show you that I am not the same person I was 16 years ago.

I promise that you’ll see that I am a very humble, open-minded, uncomplicated and good hearted man who you can say made a few poor decisions and who is now paying for them.

Now, just to give you a little rundown about myself; I am very much into drawing, very much into all types of music, writing poetry and reading. I also enjoy the occasional good movie here and there. I am very much into sports, both
