Hopwood applied the “Page 99 Test” to Law Man and reported the following:
Page 99 was one of the hardest pages to write out of 305-page memoir. It was hard to write because on that page I am telling the story of how my best friend and I robbed a bank. The guilt from that one act still bothers me today. I don’t like writing about it, I don’t like talking about it.Learn more about Law Man at Shon Hopwood's website, blog, and Facebook page.
But it is a centerpiece of the story. Because you cannot know where I am now if you don’t know where I was 15 years ago.
Some say the day I was sentenced to over 12 years in federal prison was the low point—my rock bottom.
I think the bank robbery was the low point because it illustrates just how desperate and lost I truly was at the time.
