Jacob (Justin) Gamet

Born and raised in Yakima, Washington. And here I reside today, a prisoner at the Washington State Reformatory in Monroe, Washington. I’m currently working on two self-help books: “Lovehappy” (a relationship handbook based on religious principles) and “The Scrabble Dojo: Defensive Strategies for Beating Any Opponent.” After drafting and submitting a 52-page appellate brief (on 3/4/18) on my own behalf because my prior three appellate attorneys were ineffective in overlooking a case law I could have won on in 2006, I hope to be released sometime this year. God willing. Jacob J. Gamet #883302 Monroe Correctional Complex - WSR PO Box 777 Monroe, WA 98272

Good morning, 2021 Behold, a world reeling Hearts left in utter ruin In dire need of healing An Eve spent in cheer Masking the dismay COVID lions roamed about Dragging loved ones away Good morning, 2021 I pray we arise anew As 2020 sets, you rise With hopes pinned 2U...

New Year’s Eve Prison Party!

New Year’s Eve Prison Party!

At WSRU (my gated community), we get one day out of the year to turn up -- on New Year's Eve. Unlike the free world, though, our New Year's Eve venues are "party of one" (or two if you live on the 4th tier and have a cellie) from inside our cells. Still, our open cell...
