As usual, Opera News is here to bring you another true story about a 15-year-old man who was imprisoned in 2021 and released in 2021. Please relax and grab some popcorn or anything else that will allow you to continue reading; I believe you will learn moral lessons from this article.
This life is really short, every second is important. On February 20, 1953, a 15-year-old boy named Joseph Reagan attended a party with his classmates. They were drunk and made a mistake, which will have a lasting effect for the rest of their lives.
They were drunk, and as a result, they robbed and stabbed eight people that night. Two victims died and the others were seriously injured. As a result, Joseph Reagan was arrested and charged with a crime. He pleaded guilty in the trial. Regrettably, he was sentenced to life imprisonment after pleading guilty. In February 1953, he was arrested.
He is an orphan and spends most of his time in prison. He originally planned to spend the rest of his life in prison, but something unexpected happened in 2017. He is eligible for parole after serving nearly 7 years in prison, which means he will be released for a period of time and then return. Joe Reagan did not accept the offer, but rejected it. He said that if he wants to get out of prison, he doesn't want to go back to prison again, so it's better to stay than to leave and come back.
He said he had spent too many years in prison and would rather be released for a while and then come back, or be supervised for the rest of his life. As a result, he rejected the proposal. Joseph Ligon has been in prison for 68 years. He thought he would die from life imprisonment, but God intervened. After his lawyer won the case in 2020, even though he refused to give up fighting for Joseph Reagan.
In 2021, after Joseph Ligon was released from prison (this year), he expressed his hope that people would benefit from his experience because he now feels like a foreigner in this world because everything has changed. He was imprisoned in the 20th century and released in the 21st century; many things have changed and he will have to learn how to survive again.
Joseph Reagan is 84 years old and the longest prisoner in the United States.
