I broke into Goodwill because I was so cold.

I did PCP for two days, then I broke into Goodwill because I was so cold. I was on house arrest for two days for Marijuana. I’ve been here twice. On this trip I was here a week. First time I was here two weeks— also when I was 17. I have 23 more days here then I’m on IPS (intensive probation) or house arrest. I’m supposed to get Xanex or Diazapan … but they are not giving it to me now. My Dad says I’m supposed to take it every day. My brother is in jail for first-degree murder—he killed an SRS (transgender) person. He is 34-35.

I call a guy that works for the moving company my “Dad.”  He is 35…He is A.B. (Aryan Brotherhood).

I have a 23-year-old sister. Mom owns three moving companies. Dad owns his own company — remodeling. They are divorced. My dad has a lot of DUIs. I call a guy that works for the moving company my “Dad.” He is 35 … He is A.B. (Aryan Brotherhood). He’s 17 years older than me but he’s at least around … we would go to my house and smoke weed.

I’m done when I say I’m done and I’m done.

- C.I., age 17, Johnson County Juvenile Detention, Olathe, Kan.
