16 Years -- Drug Conspiracy

Iris Pereira, prisoner of the drug war
I am a 33-year-old, first-time, nonviolent offender and mother of two teenagers that I love and miss very much. I was arrested, convicted and sentenced to 15 years and 8 months on a drug-related conspiracy charge.

I am an optimist with dreams and goals. I am trying very hard not to let the prison environment destroy my happy nature. I've been in prison almost 9 years with a release date of 2009.
