Iam Matthew Hahn, ex-convict who burgled a home, discovered child porn, which I turned in. I later faced a life sentence. Was subject of recent TIL. AMA!
My short bio: I stole the safe. I turned the photos in anonymously. I faced 400 years to life under California's 3 Strikes Law. All of my strikes were for serious but nonviolent theft (burglary, possession of stolen property). I did not get a life sentence, but have served just under 9 years in California prisons. I paroled in 2012 and have been off parole since 2013. I don't steal anymore.
