Meet RichardMore about RichardContact InformationSentence Information

My name is Richard Cortez and I’m 56 years old. I like to work out, and draw all day. Those are the two things I love to do.

I’ve been in prison for 14 years now and I’m open to talk about my case if brought up. I do not have anything to hide. I have two kids who are in their thirties, and two grandkids. All of my family is in California so I’m a long way away from home. I used to go fishing all the time, camping, and loved to ride all of my Harleys. I also used to take my boat out to the Mississippi River. I used to play bass and make CDs at another prison that I was at, here in Iowa. So I’m a good bass player. I’m Native American and Hispanic from California. I enjoy going to the sweat lodge with my bros.

This is about all of the things I do, and used to do. I hope I can find someone who will write me. I’ve been alone long enough, it’s time for me to find new friends besides all of the guys in here.

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
