It’s episode 37 of This Strange Life and we are joined by Julio Briones. This episode is a deep dive into a few serious and interest topics: incarceration, wrongful conviction and what it’s like to come back from that. Julio now runs Answer Man Specialty Services — a personal crisis management company. In his youth, Julio got caught up in the wrong crowd and ended up in jail. Due to not understanding the system and hiring the wrong attorney, Julio was sentenced to 39 years in prison. Julio talks about what it was like coming to terms with a sentence so long and the low points that go with it. He took his life into his own hands, became a paralegal and, over time and with hard work, saw his sentence reduced to 12 years. We discuss how he was able to pick himself up by the bootstraps and turn his life around. Now that he is out — he has a family and a business. Very inspiration, albeit, heavy pod. Enjoy!
