Kensley Hawkins ask to pay for incarceration with jailhouse earnings!

Kensley Hawkins was sent to prison in 1980 for the murder of one man and the attempted murder or two officers(bad idea sir)…

At the time Kensley Hawkins had a daughter and realiized he would be in jail for a very long time..

While he as in prison Kensley earned 75 dollars/month building furniture in Joliet.. Somehow he was able to save 11,000 dollars in the pen to tribute to his daughter..But the state of Illinois is not pleased and has asked that Kensley be required to pay for the cost of his incarceration..
