A few years later, after engaging in a string of criminal activities, Scott found himself in a much different institution after being sentenced to life in prison - and the only "girls" were the HIV-positive transvestites who did their best to hide their beards.
Within the first few days locked behind 60-foot high walls, Inmate #461419 quickly realized he wasn't prepared for the rampant gang violence, corrupt guards, and suicides. He was in a new type of hell on earth that his religious textbooks never mentioned.
