DANVILLE, California 8/13/13. It has been an agonizingly tough week waiting for the jury's decision. The evidence concerning me is solid and would be difficult to refute since the witnesses, as a panel, determined the accuracy of the facts. I was facing the death penalty unless there was a reverse in the evidence.
FIRST-SOME BACKGROUND INFORMATION: Few people know of the medical issues this writer has endured since being exposed to Mustard Gas while in military service. That gas is deadly. It ravages the organs of the body, in this case, the lungs, the heart and the intestines. Prostate cancer was a direct result of the mustard gas. I was also left with severe heart problems, as well as the effects of a stroke during which I actually crossed over and was revived.
