“There is no sugarcoating it for me,” Sterling said. “I’m in prison.”
Sterling said he wants the public to know that he has “survived with my head held high.” But he concedes that he feels low on some days. He was a CIA officer, helping run an operation to sabotage Iranian plans to design a nuclear weapon. Now he’s Inmate No. 38338-044 in Englewood, Colo., taking classes on checking and saving accounts to help increase his chances of eventually being released to a halfway house.
“I am doing my best,” he wrote in a recent message, “to hang on.”
