£13 Million Resin Bust: Michael Emmett | True Crime Podcast 141


£13 Million Resin Bust: Michael Emmett | True Crime Podcast 141

Michael Emmett idolised his gangster father. He wanted to follow in his dad’s footsteps and to join the family business. At 16, he entered the glamourous yet dangerous world of organised crime. Under the tutelage of his father – a contemporary of the infamous Kray twins – Michael’s criminal activities funded a reckless lifestyle marked by drugs, sex and violence. But the high couldn’t last forever. In 1993, Michael and his father were arrested in a dramatic confrontation with the police during a £13 million smuggling operation. Michael was sentenced to twelve years behind bars and would serve his time in the same prison as his father.

Shaun is a speaker, author and activist based in London, who is banned from America for life. As an inmate in Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s jail, he used a tiny pencil sharpened on a cell door to write the first prison blog, Jon’s Jail Journal.

His writing, smuggled out of the jail with the highest rate of death in America, turned the international media spotlight on the conditions: dead rats in the food, cockroaches crawling in his ears at night, murders by guards and gang members.
