Thirteen Days Until My Release From Taft Federal Prison Camp

Tomorrow I will shop in the commissary at Taft Camp for the last time.  At least I think it will be my last shopping day.  I’m told that the administration freezes all accounts ten days before each prisoner’s release date.  If that holds true, I will not be shopping again.  And good riddance!  I look forward to the bargain prices at Whole Foods.
I’m still thinking about the corporate speaking opportunities that I will pursue.  Through Lessons From Prison, I offer all types of guidance that business professionals will appreciate.  One of my 60-minute prepared speeches is especially timeless.  I call it “Exacerbating Troubles Through Denial.”Many people, this blogger included, exacerbate troubles through denial.  During my presentation I will help those in my audience understand the motivations and the absurd decisions I made that led to my confinement.  After talking with other prisoners and reading about defendants who have struggled through the criminal justice system, I know that I was not alone in clinging to denials.

Most readers remember the unfortunate case of Martha Stewart.  She did not serve a prison term for her role in an insider trading scandal.  Martha Stewart joined the ranks of American felons as a consequence of her denying responsibility for her actions.  The cover-up was worse than the act itself.

Today I learned of Michael Corona, who had been the Sheriff of Orange County.  According to reports I heard, he had been acquitted of substantive criminal acts, but his lying and denials resulted in his being convicted.  Now he must serve a prison sentence in excess of five years.

Through this speech I will discuss my own denial in detail.  I went to great lengths to cover up my culpability.  Those bad decisions resulted in six-figure legal fees and a longer prison term.  Acceptance of responsibility makes much more sense, amd through this one hour speech I’ve prepared on the subject, I will show the reason why.
