    Book details

This true story reveals the horrific details of life behind bars. A journal recorded during nearly nine months of incarceration explores the abject cruelty and punishment suffered by a falsely accused man. Interwoven are accounts of episodes that lead to the erroneous apprehension of two Rhode Island natives - a same sex couple - who took in two young siblings on the brink of separation. The teenage biological brother and sister, adopted on the infamous date of Sept. 11, 2001, accuse the couple of sexual abuse six years later. The innocent men are arrested, indicted on charges of child molestation, and held without bail at an adult correctional institution. They are victimized and endure unspeakable abuse, primarily resulting from coercion by prison staff and state marshals. Release from prison comes nine months later, following a mistrial held in Rhode Island Superior Court, and a plea bargain to avoid further incarceration. Most significant in the book Incite is its commentary concerning crime and punishment, the criminal "injustice" system, humanitarianism, and personal growth. This chronicle of transcendence reveals insight on courage in the face of uncertainty, as well as highlighting the concepts of judgment and forgiveness, diversity, acceptance, and personal choice. About the Author: Raymond Grenier lives in Rhode Island. He has undergone hip restoration surgery as a result of being attacked in prison while awaiting trial. He says, "Names have been changed to protect the innocent and shield the guilty." Publisher's website:

    I loved this book! Although it was very disturbing in some sections, the final part left me feeling positive. The stories about the ACI prison in Rhode Island really surprised me, since I know for a fact that prisons in the South are much worse than they are up here. I hope people in RI will spread the word about these 2 innocent men; what a tragedy! Most Americans have no clue as to what goes on inside prison walls... this was such a true-to-life story - not overly dramatic or hysterical, just factual. I highly recommend this book.

    Wow. That's all I can say. Wow. A gay couple from Rhode Island is kind enough to take in biological siblings who were about to be separated as a result of 9/11. In 2008, they commit the ultimate betrayal: they accuse their adoptive parents of child molestation. As a result, the two (and I'm sure it doesn't help being gay, since people foolishly believe gay men automatically molest children) are arrested and held without bail.What follows in several months of being in the prison system, aka, hell. Horrible treatment from prison guards and U.S. Marshalls and the rigors of prison will definitely change anyone's perspective that jail is nothing more than a tax payer funded country club. I was horrified at some of the treatment that was revealed.We also see some of the ingenuity of prisoners. One guy actually caused a blackout by sticking wires in a socket in an attempt to spark a crack pipe. Of course, flipping the breaker requires a "qualified electrician" which leads me to believe the Rhode Island penal system is unionized.This book definitely deserves the five star rating I gave it and I noticed that several other reviewers gave it.

    Two Rhode Island men, a gay couple, adopt a pair of siblings about to be separated due to 9/11. Angry at the world, they act up in school, get into fights, and cause all sorts of trouble but nothing compares with what they do to the couple who took them in. They make claims of molest. The pair ends up in jail. That's when the real tough time begins.The penal system has a tendency to view anyone who is accused of being a child molester as being guilty, even if they are later acquitted (oh, you molested kids and got away with it). This is apparent in the book. The author gives an in-depth look at the day to day life in prison making even the best prison movies pale in comparison. Matter of fact, this should be a movie. It's deeply disturbing to know these events are based on reality. I give the author a lot of credit for writing this.

    I would recommend this book as an empowering view of life- how to live through tragic circumstances beyond our control and turn life's events to a learning advantage. Life is a journey- sometimes a nightmare - but getting through the hard times makes us stronger and more compassionate.

    Raymond's book combines the elements of 'The Other', 'The Shankshaw Redemption', 'Cool Hand Luke', and 'The Green Mile', into one unbelievable account of a journey no one would ever imagine taking of their own choice. Thorough, detailed, insightful and humorous at times, this book will make you think twice, if you are a parent or guardian, and explaining to a child that the ACI is where they put all the bad people. Your perception will be altered. Excellent!
