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 750000 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 Arpaios 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.
