My name is Charlie Jones, formerly a lawyer and certified financial planner, now a convicted felon and inmate at Bastrop Federal Satellite Camp in Texas. I’m 62 years old, and before my incarceration, resided in Waco, Texas, where I owned an SEC registered investment advisory firm. In January 2015 I pled guilty to one count of wire fraud in a plea agreement with the federal prosecutor and was sentenced in July 2015 to 72 months.
My decisions and conduct that led to my incarceration have ruined my career, destroyed valued and trusted relationships, and hurt my sweet family. My purpose in sharing these often random but hopefully coherent thoughts is to let readers experience with me what I encounter and am hopefully learning through this journey. Certainly my life should serve as a warning to others, but I want it to be more than that. My desire here is to offer honest encouragement and hope and perhaps some humor which I truly believe can be found in any circumstance. You can read a little more about why I'm writing this blog here.
