    I need you. Wrongfully convicted by a coward, a liar, and a MONUMENTALLY arrogant and selfish man to 18 months
    in prison, though I was trying to interest him in doing business
    with me. Served 16 months. Am now homeless, though trained for the opera stage and acting/directing/writing/singing/dancing, and THIS MAN STILL STALKS ME!


    Will be in touch.
