Jack got bailed and started working in some workplace. He got partner called Kelly. Kelly ask him about the crime which he did to get in the prison:

Kelly: So what were you in for? Unless you don't want to...
Jack: No, no. Uh, stealing cars, you know, joyriding.
Kelly: Right. How many stints you do?
Jack: Three. After me last, me Uncle Terry suggested I make a new start somewhere else.

What is the meaning of "after me last"? Looks like a nice idiom, but google didn't show nothing.

See above. You still need to do a lot of work on your verb forms.
