I searched high-and-low when I got indicted and was shockingly surprised by the lack of information out there. How is it that we’re the greatest country on Earth and our Justice System is shrouded in such incredible secrecy? Well, that’s what motivated me to write this book – it’s everything I wish I knew before getting indicted.
I did a 10-year bid in locations ranging from Federal Detention Centers to County Jails, under Lockdowns and in the SHU, getting the full spectrum of prison experience. I’ve also interviewed hundreds of fellow inmates, one of whom even did time in Supermax, gathering their experiences and stories.  Let me help guide you through this challenging and difficult time.

What industry professionals are saying about Guilty Till Proven Innocent:

“Lawrence Hartman in this excellent book largely confines himself to the current facts, practical problems, and best methods for an individual to try to cope with the American criminal justice system. This foreword attempts to provide some background and context to supplement the author’s invaluable advice on how to cope with every stage of the misfortune of being drawn into the American criminal justice system. I cannot recommend it strongly enough to anyone in that unenviable position, or to any American interested in the largely overlooked crisis of his country’s justice system.”
