- What brings you to Seattle?

- You know, I came here in 2000

to kinda get away from the gangs and the drugs,

since I was pretty much immersed in that lifestyle.

I was real abrasive,

and anybody who stared at me too long,

I was kinda with that, "Do I know you?!"

- Damn right.

I'm gonna guess that my guy might have

got into something back in the day

and got somethin' on his record.

- It could be drugs, could be theft.

Could be vandalizing things.

- I mean, if you were smokin' since you were nine,

I'm just gonna say yes.

I have six DUIs in the state of Washington.

thefts, home invasions, a larceny charge,

and I spent almost five years in prison.

Well, you're very well put together.

- That's good.

- It'll be nine years in May.

Clap it up for my dog real quick,

eight and a half years.


That's what I'm talking about, good shit bro.

What's up with you?

I guess you correctly too?

- Yes sir.

- So what did you do?

So what do you think?

What do you think I did?

So, it was federal tax evasion,

based on large real estate transactions.

double check all that shit now, huh?

It was the best time of my life.

I thought I got away with it.

They came through the back door, the front door,

and I was up in the attic.

Before I had a chance to do anything they had me.
