After committing credit card fraud at a local department store, 18-year-old Reginald Hall lands an eight-month sentence at the Delaware County Prison.
What complicates his life as an inmate is his sexual orientation. In life, being gay is difficult enough; in prison, it can be a horrendous ordeal.
Attempting suicide, taking drugs, and having illicit sex were only some of the self-destructive behaviors Reginald dabbled in.
His only sanity came from family visits and frequent phone calls to relatives, especially his mother, his reaching out to God, and his few genuine friendships formed in jail, particularly with Lamont.
This is not to say Reginald was an angel during his stay at DCP. He had plenty of jailhouse crushes, some of them inappropriate – like his infatuation with Teddy Cunningham.
