Overview

This is true story of author's fifteen years of tribulation that was by-product of overzealous government agents and three craven men who rather sell out their friend than take punishment for their parsimony and slip-ups.

The events leading to author's abrupt, astonishing, unwarranted and reprehensible arrest in March of 1990 and trial at Federal courthouse that culminated to immurement of nearly thirteen years at Federal prison. Also author gives an account of events that transpired in Federal prison system during thirteen years of his incarceration.

It is an eye opening exposition of what was really happening with our Federal criminal justice system, the courtroom, and inside Federal prison system that no one is aware of.

The entire episode began in spring of 1989 as a normal business transaction where author endeavored to lend his hands to assist and guide a novice entrepreneur and long time friend making an effort to be engaged in successful import and export business because his gambling enterprise in La Vegas turned to total bust. However, the culprit's import-export business later turned into an illegal narcotics smuggling scheme that was operated in a poor, incompetent and sloppy manner, the authorities discovered the design in a matter of weeks.

The culprit and his cohort was arrested in December of 1989 when attempting to examine his cargo at author's premises when it was shipped from Seoul to Los Angeles, and cleared through US Customs by author's firm. Author was not present at that instance, and his wife Ann was arrested with two perpetrators since she was at the premises to allow two perpetrators claim their cargo.

Author was implicated as two prisoners as co-conspirator three and half months later in order to strike a deal for them, and tried at Federal courthouse in Los Angeles, and convicted as co-conspirator solely upon the testimony of two prevaricators.

However, the main theme of this book is the experience of author's thirteen years life at four different Federal prisons. Author spent first at medium custody level Federal Correctional Institute in Terminal Island, California, then low lever joint at Federal Medical Center in Rochester, Minnesota, minimum out custody camp at Florence, Colorado, and another minimum out camp in Lompoc, California. Author spent three and half years at Terminal Island, fourteen months at Rochester, five years at Florence and three years and three months at Lompoc.
