Guest Host: Jim Angle

Record-high incarceration rates have kept lawbreakers off America’s streets, but now a large number of people are being released back into the "real world," often with little or no guidance in how to get a job, find housing, and operate as citizens in their communities. A panel talks about programs to help people make the adjustment to life after prison, and why they so often fail.

Guests

  • Mario Paparozzi professor of law and justice at the College of New Jersey and a former parole officer with the New Jersey Department of Corrections
  • Charles Simon deputy associate attorney general, U.S. Department of Justice
  • Kelly Little Druid Heights Community Development Corporation in Baltimore, Md.
