Threatened with the death penalty, he pleaded guilty and received a 50-year sentence.

During this time he was jailed in Bang Kwang and, speaking to Billy Moore on his All or Nothing podcast, Jonathan detailed some of the gruesome scenes he experienced while incarcerated.

Once, he recalls, a man was assaulted by fellow inmates while showering in a shocking attack.

“When the guy had his face covered in shampoo in the shower, another Thai man smashed his head with that piece of metal,” he recalls.

“Literally like a pumpkin… hit his head with his brains hanging out.”

Host Billy, who himself has spent time in Thai prisons for drug-related offenses, asked, “Were you watching this? “

“Yes, I was not far,” Jonathan replied, acknowledging that he saw the man’s body pass him on a cart soon after.

“You imagine you have soap on your face, someone is behind you at the showers and keeps banging your head when you’re on the floor as well. “

Billy also spoke about the kind of unthinkable horrors he has witnessed in Thai prisons as well.

On another occasion, he explained that while serving a sentence at Klong Plem Central, he saw inmates stab other lags with HIV-infected needles to settle their debts.

After being finally released from prison and returned to the UK in 2012, Jonathan had to deal with some of the huge societal changes that occurred during his incarceration.

Describing how he was 33 when he was arrested and 51 when he left, Jonathan noted that he did not realize the smoking ban had been introduced.

“I didn’t recognize any car, no metro was talking to you, smoking cigarettes and people were going crazy; the barmaids say “what are you doing?”

But, the former drug dealer has now turned a new leaf and admitted he no longer had nightmares about his old life.
