This is Antwan Johnson’s Bio, in his own words:

Antwan Johnson

I’m 38 years old (born January 4th, 1977) from Roanoke, Virginia. I’ve been in and out of prison most of my life. I’ve been isolated from my family most of my life. I was real close to my father before he passed away last year.

I pretty much raised myself – sold drugs the majority of my life, very self-reliant.

To pass time, I work out, play basketball and study case law.

I’m currently serving a 30-year sentence for murder.

This is my 4th time in prison and it’s sad but it’s almost like second nature to me. I wish to share my most deepest experiences with others with the goal of allowing others an inside track on how one thinks when they’re somewhat “institutionalized.”
