    Well I have court on May 6th for attempting to flee the police and my lawyer said usually Id get off but because my record is filled with low-level crimes its likely they will give me anywhere from 12-24 weeks. What is there to do in prison? I was thinking of writing a book whilst in there documenting my days kinda like Nelson Mandela. Im not that concerned about going to prison guess I will just stay in my cell and sleep until I am released.

    I thought you weren't allowed to write books of that nature due to them "glorifying criminality" or some such nonsense. I might be wrong though.

    Write an autobiography outlining your political ideology and future plans for the country.
    And call it "My Struggle".
    And include a picture on the front of you looking towards the reader with an angry face.
    And square moustache.

    Twelve to twenty-four weeks is nothing in the grand scheme of things (bearing in mind you only spend half of your sentence, and if you're 21 or younger you'll be in a Young Offenders Institute). Personally, I think it's ridiculous that this country imprisons non-violent offenders anyway, especially when each innate costs upwards of £30,000 a year.

    In all honesty no one will care about you being a random guy in jail for a low level crime, so the book would just be for you.

    Do some self improvement seems like you need it. work out and think about how you could stop doing crimes

    Agree with this, although it seems you're egging him on to commit a more serious crime. (In the first paragraph).

    I don't think you're going to write a book.

    All I see is someone posting in order to get validation. "Look at me everybody I'm such a gang-star."

    How? I dont see how my situation is different to Nelson Mandelas.. Pretty sure he didn't think of himself as a "gang-star" during his time inside.

    You definitely come across like you want validation and attention for going to prison. It's like you see yourself as edgy and dark...or like I said...a gang-star.

    I'm sure you typed that without even doing a quick Google search. Under 21s go to Young Offenders Institutes.
