My real name is April Marie Rangel. I was married when I caught this charge but I divorced while fighting the case, but Texas kept Lara on the docket. I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. I lived with my grandparents until my Dad came back from the Navy. At 16 I moved to Houston, Texas, to be with my Mom’s family. I stayed with them until I graduated high school. I went tot San Jacinto College for 2 semesters. I then started my career with a company in the Accounts Receivable Department. I have one daughter and son. Unfortunately, after having my daughter my life got a little hard and I didn’t always make the right choices.
While incarcerated I’ve been taking advantage of the opportunities presented to me. I’ve enrolled in college courses to complete my Associate’s Degree. I like working in the fields, I’ve always had a great fondness for plants. When I’m not in school or working I like to draw cards for my kids, to portraits form my friends and family.
Unfortunately, it does get a little lonely in here and I’m just seeking a friend to write to. Maybe keep in touch once I get out. I look forward to your letters and getting to know you.
