“I’m not a bad guy I just made a poor decision when I was 15 years old. I’m just trying to get a chance again to prove myself to my family and the community and most important to myself because I just want people to know I’m not the same little boy that make poor decision.”
My name is James Canaday, aka P2. I’m 23 years old and I been in prison since I was 15 years old. I grew up in a bad part of north Philadelphia, and spent most of my time following the wrong people. Since I been in prison I have gotten my GED and am still educating myself. I wanted to be involved with Decarcerate PA and the LifeLines Project because I want to help my people that’s doing life and that deserve a second chance. As of March 31, 2015 I have been resentenced to 35 years to life.
