According to Salvador: I am a nonviolent, low-level, first-time drug offender currently serving 25 years. I do not dispute I broke the law and made very poor decisions; I’m not one to make excuses for myself. I’ve learned to accept what’s done and learn from my mistake. What kills me is that the people around me that have to do this time with me like my brothers & sisters, my Mom and Dad and my one and only baby girl of just 10 years old, are all having to live life without me because of a onetime mistake. In going into my 3rd year in prison I have programmed from the second I came in. One program I am most proud of is a VT Builder Trade class where I’ve learned to build a house from top to bottom. A year long class with perfect attendance and straight A’s. I am involved in the Suicide Watch Program. I am doing all I can to make myself a better person so once released, I will have job skills and be ready to reintegrate to society.
