I was sixteen and i got convicted of a sex crime. I’m now 35, I never had a record ever until that day when two police officers came to my home and told me i was being accused of sleeping with a minor girl I was 17 then they took me in a small office and proceeded to tell me if i don’t confess they were going to put me away for life i was so scared the police officers grabbed my neck and slammed me down on the chair and hit me in my right ear which is messed up now.i thought i was young to die i was in fear for my life so i confessed to something i never did no dna nothing didn’t even read me my rights i did not no them anyhow,i got put in a mental hospital state pation hospital in San Bernardino. I got out and registered i violated my probation. And they gave me eight years with a strike i’ve done about 15 years all because i didn’t have a lawyer and a dna test now i’m off parole three years now and my daughter is 18 i’ve missed so much.while i was in i gave my life to god and now i want to make a difference to help i am innocent .
