Episode Info:

Welcome to Season 2 of Shattered. When he was 14 years-old, Rick Wershe, Jr. became one of the youngest FBI informants in American history. The inside information he provided led to the downfall of some of Detroit's biggest drug dealers. Once the FBI no longer needed Rick, he became a dealer in his own right, only until being busted on a cocaine possession charge when he was 17. Wershe has been in prison ever since. Hosted by WDIV investigative reporter, Kevin Dietz, Shattered: White Boy Rick chronicles Wershe's improbable life story. Along the way, you’ll meet the sister who stood by him, the drug boss who befriended him, the FBI agents who employed him, and even Matthew McConaughey, who plays the part of Rick’s dad in the upcoming movie, White Boy Rick. You can hear the entire story starting September 6th.
