Special Encore Presentation: Surviving and Thriving - Pt 2: Ex-Cons Give Back
Jan 24 12
Sad but true: two-thirds of ex-offenders relapse into crime after they’re released from prison. Against heavy odds, however, some DO turn their lives around and tonight Crime Prevention Specialist Susan Bartelstone will be speaking with some former bad guys who are not only law-abiding citizens now but are inspiring other ex-cons to do the same. You’ll meet Larry Lawton, who, after spending 11 years in some of the country’s toughest federal prisons, founded The Reality Check Program for at-risk kids that shows them what prison life is really like—and affected thousands of troubled lives so far. Former drug abuser/dealer Randy Kearse, now the author of five motivational books based on his personal experiences, inspires other ex cons who are trying to go straight and transition back into society. And, Defy Ventures, founded by former Wall Street financial analyst Catherine Rohr, helps ex-cons with an entrepreneurial bent go into business for themselves. Be inspired.
