Hello! My name is Robert. I am a Texas Death Row inmate in Livingston, Texas USA. I arrived here on the Plounsky Unit on July 19 2001. I have been on Death Row three years now.

Everyday life here at the Polunsky Unit is spent under harsh conditions. We are only allowed one hour of recreation per day, which is by ourselves. Also, no human contact is allowed at all between us Death Row inmates. Everywhere we go we are handcuffed. The remaining 23 hours we are confined to our cells.

Being that most of our time is spent in solitary confinement, we are limited to no kind of activity whatsoever. They donít allow us to participate in a work program or attend college related courses.

Iím looking for any and all pen-friends whom would like to correspond with me. I am a Mexican man, 32 years of age (Aug 5th 1972). I have a 9 year old son who I love and miss very much. I like to read books mainly non-fiction concerning autobiographies, drama and history. I like meeting new people, listening to music and any type of outdoor activity in general being that I love sports.

Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from anyone who wishes to correspond with me.
