I Am a Convicted Felon

Business Ethics 4 (3):25-26 (1990)
My name is Doug Adam. I am a convicted felon. I turned myself in, in mid-1987, to a U.S. attorney in New York, pleading guilty to felony charges of tax fraud and fraud on a mutual fund. It leftme scared to death, millions of dollars in debt, with no job, and at the age of37 back living with my parents while I awaited sentencing. What began then was a painful process of self discovery. After thriving on competition and perfection all my life, how could I admit I wasn't perfect? Perfection wasn't even close. I was a felon.
