The Jailhouse Lawyers Confession by Mark Anthony Given

We who live in prison, and in whose lives there is no event but sorrow, have to measure time by throbs of pain, and the record of bitter moments. -Oscar Wilde ________________________ MOHAWK UNIT at the federal correctional facility at Marianna, Florida, a mid-level security prison, was one of five such two-hundred and fifty men in two to a cell, all cinderblock, and miles of institution earth tones paint Units. 
CONTROLLED MOVEMENT every couple of hours men begin to congregate at the entrance way. I'm standing down there with them and a well-dressed extremely good looking black man built like rock hard boxer and always real quite. After a few weeks or months of federal prison standing around waiting or in line at the chow hall, you'd be surprised at the number of real criminals you bump into. As soon as I hear the gist of a guys case, my mind immediately begins to calculate how many Banker Boxes of trial transcripts I'm going to have to wade thru and then how many trees wer…

The Real Deer Hunter by Mark Anthony Given

In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. -George Orwell ______________________
THERE ARE CRIMES against Laws the United States has enacted and then there are crimes against the United States itself.... As in aiding and abetting the overthrow of the United States Government... I had this very serious offense thrown out at my first appearance for Arraignment in New York before a US Magistrate. This charge was for a bunch of weapons stolen from a K-Mart in St. Jamesbury, Vermont by a band of my merry burglars who specialized in large commercial businesses... I was surprised to hear that these weapons were seized in California in the hands of real revolutionary's, and I knew immediately this is serious business, and I was only sixteen at the time. Standing shackled in a 3XXX dayglo Orange Bob Barker suits and brown shower shoes with no socks my feet were literally swimming in cold sweat. The cavernous courtroom of stone and wood was freezing, and I didn&#…

Scared Money by Mark Anthony Given

HOW MANY BANKS did I have to rob with my trusty Bic Pen at ten grand a pop before I stopped being scared? Seventy-Five banks in a dozen jurisdiction estimated two and a half million dollars in less than two years... For sentencing purposes, the federal courts count the total of the checks I deposited, not the amount I withdrew...  I didn't matter to me.  When I got to federal prison and began researching my Restitution issue I discovered that the punishment for federal bank fraud changed from five (5) years to Twenty (20)!!! Within months of my last offense and arrest...  Did I tell you I was born with a Star on my Ass?

THE VERY FEW times I robbed a bank with a pretty face and a smile, that I wasn't scared was when I brought my best friend with me and I showed him how to do it for fifty per…

Famous and Contagious by Mark Anthony Given

Celebrity is one who is known to many persons he is glad he doesn't know. -H. L. Mencke ______________
I WROTE a story about a Real Life Heist and turned it into a screenplay which became a major motion picture which became a box office smash which sold millions of books which made me famous and contagious;  I should have never placed my picture on the fly leaf... FIRST THING that went wrong was my personal assistant hired through a big head-hunter firm in New York turned out to be addicted to drugs and swiped a bunch of my personal effects I had had since was a kid, not to mention opening up several debit cards in my name and robbing me blind.  I got all the money back and she's sitting in the Los Angeles County jail right now, where I hope she stays. Then I reluctantly let a family member live in the guest/pool house and they got drunk the first night there and took out a whole row of my neighbors' fancy cars in the canyons:  six to be exact. MY AGENT DIED and his wife absco…
