Shaun Attwood tells His Story
This week Shaun Attwood joined us as part of our sixth form lecture programme, he told his astonishing life story to an enthralled Sixth Form. Shaun was born in Cheshire and became interested in the stock-market at an early age, trading for the first time at the age of sixteen. After travelling to Arizona regularly to visit his aunts, Attwood moved there following university and became a stock-market millionaire, eventually becoming mired in the bubbling rave scene and distributing ecstasy, smuggling up to £4 million. He was arrested in 2002 and released early in 2007 before being deported back to England.
Shaun encouraged the students to read his book entitled Hard Time and to follow his blog which publishes letters and accounts sent to him by other prisoners.
