Hard Time: Life with Sheriff Joe Arpaio in America's Toughest Jail | [Shaun Attwood]

Hard Time: Life with Sheriff Joe Arpaio in America's Toughest Jail

Shaun Attwood was a millionaire day trader in Phoenix, Arizona, but his hedonistic lifestyle of drugs and parties came to an abrupt end in 2002 when a SWAT team broke down his door. Attwood found himself on remand in Maricopa Jail with a $750,000 cash bond and all of his assets seized. The nightmare was only just beginning as he was submerged in a jail in which rival gangs vied for control, crystal meth was freely available, and where breaking rules could result in beatings or death.

Audible Editor Reviews

The day SWAT team members kicked down millionaire day trader Shaun Attwood's door and arrested him on drug charges, his life experienced a dramatic transformation: Now he was a prison inmate. In Hard Time: Life with Sheriff Joe Arpaio in America's Toughest Jail, voice performer Peter Batchelor narrates British-born Attwood's brutal tale of life behind bars. From his dramatic enactment of Attwood's initial arrest in Phoenix to his bleakly humorous inflection when describing bug-ridden cells and prison violence, Batchelor draws listeners into the prison experience and leads them to empathize with the merciless reality of incarceration in an American jail.

Publisher's Summary

Shaun Attwood was a millionaire day trader in Phoenix, Arizona, but his hedonistic lifestyle of drugs and parties came to an abrupt end in 2002 when a SWAT team broke down his door. Attwood found himself on remand in Maricopa Jail with a $750,000 cash bond and all of his assets seized. The nightmare was only just beginning as he was submerged in a jail in which rival gangs vied for control, crystal meth was freely available, and where breaking rules could result in beatings or death.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s jails have the highest death rate in the U.S. Hard Time is the harrowing yet darkly humorous account of the time Attwood spent submerged in a nightmarish world of gang violence and insect-infested cells, eating food unfit for animals. His remarkable story provides a revealing glimpse into the tragedy, brutality, comedy, and eccentricity of prison life.
