When you enter prison, you get two or three sets of raggedy clothes, and if you’re caught wearing ill-fitting ones or trading uniforms, you’re written up.
That’s one of the many things that took Misty Renee’ Brockett by surprise when she entered prison as a first-time felon—a fate that happens to more people than you may think. Even a truly innocent person would be leery of gambling with decades of their life when they could enter a plea agreement to serve three years, which is what she did.
In this humorous and useful guide for the recently arrested and/or convicted and their families and loved ones, the author explains what you can expect from arrest to conviction to release. It is based on her experiences discovering the rules and uncommon procedures that are not listed in any prison handbook.
Gathered from firsthand trial and error, and years of mandatory observation, her insights won’t just help the newly convicted survive in prison—they could help some avoid being locked up altogether.
