Abstract: Although there are many fathers incarcerated in the state of Louisiana, I am quite sure only a handful fell into my unique category. On December 13, 2011, I was arrested for possession of marijuana. It was my third offense. Unable to make the extremely high bond, I was remanded to the Notorious House of Detention. For those who have never had the pleasure of spending the night in what we call “The House of Death,” just know that it is everything you heard about and ten times worse. At that time, I was expecting the birth of my first child. I was certain that the courts would give me a break so that I could be there to see her birth. Boy, was I mistaken!
