He spends every night and weekend at the Baldwin County Jail during the day, he works at a law office across the street.
He is speaking out now because he says he was politically persecuted he feels the prosecution hid evidence showing that it was a suicide not murder.
While he maintains his innocence in the shooting, he does admit to not being the "best" guy...
Yes I was wrong in my personal life, I made a ton of horrible mistakes I'm responsible for those.I think once the facts were on the table and within three days they knew it was self inflicted same responsibility of my innocence as my guilt. They totally got out of line with that..
